What is the most prized comic in your collection?

It is Avengers #143. It was the first issue of Avengers that I bought. My copy is signed by George Perez too. This is followed closely with captain America #106 signed by the King, Jack Kirby.

-Greg Trosclair

Deadpool #11 from Joe Kelly’s character-defining run in the late 90s. Deadpool travels back in time and they basically spliced/redrew him into an old issue of Amazing Spider-Man. Completely sold me on the character, and got me into comics as a whole.

-Patrick the ABC Web Guy

My most prized book is my Hulk 181 signed by Stan,Len,Herb and John.

-Daniel Gonzalez

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVORITE SERIES?

Would have to be either the new run of Daredevil or Red Hood. Both are must reads for me when they come out.

-Tim Rabroker

Age of Xman is so good. Come on Apocalypse as a peace and love hippie. What’s not to love.

-Ulises Garcia

Babyteeth!

-Bryan Spaulding

Gideon Falls
Die (Gillen/Hans)
Ice Cream Man

-Gav

Immortal Hulk is an obvious one, but Die is really blowing me away right now.

New Release Pick of the Week

DARK KNIGHT RETURNS THE GOLDEN CHILD #1

(W) Frank Miller (A/CA) Rafael Grampá
Frank Miller returns to the Dark Knight Universe!
It’s been three years since the events of Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Lara has spent the time learning to be more human, and Carrie Kelley has been growing into her new role as Batwoman. But a terrifying evil has returned to Gotham City, and Lara and Carrie must team up to stop this growing threat-and they have a secret weapon. Young Jonathan Kent, “the golden child,” has a power inside of him unlike anything the world has ever seen, and it’s about to be unleashed…
Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child is Frank Miller’s triumphant return to the world of the Dark Knight and joining him is the superstar artist Rafael Grampá, the mastermind behind the groundbreaking Mesmo Delivery. Following work in advertising and film, this incredible collaboration marks Grampá’s first comics work in six years, bringing his extraordinary detail and storytelling to the Dark Knight saga, resulting in a Dark Knight story like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
