Spider-Man: Kraven's Last Hunt
Kraven’s Last hunt, as previously mentioned, is by far my favorite. So much depth and insanity.
“They said my mother was insane.”

-Joel P.

Camelot 3000
The reimagining of Arthurian legends in a future setting was handled beautifully. That has stuck with me for many years.

-Kirk L.

Millie the Model
My cousin gave me Millie the Model comic books. I alwayse played with the paperdolls and designed clothes for her. They will always be my favorite.

-Jane K.

Usagi Yojimbo
Usagi Yojimbo’s Dragon Bellow Conspiracy arc. it has the right combination of historical detail and intrigue combined with action. imagine an Akira Kurosawa movie but with fuzzy animals.

-Mark R.

Transmetropolitan Vol 3
Transmetropolitan: Year of the Bastard from Warren Ellis’ Transmetropolitan #13-18. I read this every four years, so I am in the proper mindset for voting. Every election I’m older, and every election, this series and this storyline speaks to me more and rings truer every. damned. time.

-Tony S.

Star Wars: Tag and Bink Are Dead
Tag and Bink Are Dead was so much fun. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead in the Star Wars universe.

-Kris K.
