Covers of comics that are (or have been) in my collection at one point or another.
Avengers West Coast: The penultimate issue of the run, although it’ll always be “West Coast Avengers” to me. (1993)
Birds of Prey (2007)
Green Arrow: Rather than lose an arm at the hands of Superman, shades of Dark Knight Returns, Ollie Queen goes boom! It would take another six years for his return at the hands of Kevin Smith. (1995)
Green Lantern: The X-Men have traveled from the past to a future they don’t like! Oh wait…I mean Hal Jordan! A novice, first-year Hal Jordan travels from the past to a future he doesn’t like. Sorry. I don’t know why that happened. (1998)
Marvel Comics Presents (1992)
New Titans: If ever there was a signpost along the way that dictates where a series goes wrong, this issue is it. (1993)
Nightwing: Scott McDaniel returns to the title to draw the six-part Chuck Dixon/Scott Beatty Year One storyarc! (2005)
Superman: The last consecutive issue I would pick up following all the various arcs of the Death of Superman years. From here until the Loeb run it’s all random issues, anniversaries, short arcs, etc. (1995)
Thunderbolts: Featuring artwork by Dave Ross, who, thirteen years earlier, also drew the AWC issue above. (2006)
Limit reached, continued here:
Wonder Woman: This issue kicks off the three year, two-star pantied, John Byrne run. I look back on these stories as a solid work with a few wonky tales here and there. The Donna Troy/WW connection that Byrne kicked up was never my favorite, but I really dug his restoration of a Golden Age Wonder Woman into the DC mythos. If you can find them cheap, it’s definitely worth a read. (1995)
And from the never read/never owned file:
Amazing Spider-Man: First appearance of Morbius, the Living Vampire!
Uncanny X-Men: Thirty-six years before the events of Avengers vs X-Men, the Phoenix makes her first appearance! And although it’ll be retconned ten years later, as far as readers knew at this time, Phoenix is Jean Grey. (1976)
