Power Pack's First Series

in Power Pack (1984) #1

I found a collection of the first four issues of POWER PACK at a garage sale when I was 11 years old. I reread it dozens of times. I hunted down every issue in 25¢ bins all over town. Spaceships, aliens, a functional family… it was so awesome! This book and others by Louise Simonson (X-FACTOR, NEW MUTANTS) encouraged my love of reading, and were a lifeline during dark times.

Silver Surfer: New Dawn

in Silver Surfer (2014) #1

Every single issue of this run is a delight. The art is fun and the story is compelling. I was sad to reach the end of it.

Vision: Little Worse Than A Man

in Vision (2015) #1

We read this for our monthly comic reading group at the public library sponsored by my local comic shop, Pop Comics. What happens when Vision, an A.I., tries to create a family and settle down? Tom King creates a science fiction masterpiece. We talked about it for hours!

Secret Wars Event

in Secret Wars (2015) #1

After years of not buying comics, this is the book I sought out for comfort reading after my mom died. It was engrossing enough to forget about my sorrow for a few moments. Jonathan Hickman is a master storyteller, and his skill shines in this culmination of years of work.

Fantastic Four Favorites

in Fantastic Four (1998) #554

Start with Mark Millar's run and read through Jonathan Hickman's debut on issue #570. Whatever you do, don't stop until you get to the end. This is epic science fiction with great character development.

Punisher: Franken-Castle

in Punisher (2009) #11

The Punisher becomes a reanimated corpse a la Frankenstein's monster, hanging out with all the classic monsters in the sewers of New York City. This is the book you didn't know you needed to read this scary season. This whole storyline played out in PUNISHER (2009) #11-16, continued by FRANKENCASTLE (2010) #17-21.

Star Wars: Skywalker Strikes

in Star Wars (2015) #1

This series was an unexpected pleasure to read. It fills in the gaps about what the Rebellion was up to in between “A New Hope” and “Empire Strikes Back.” If you enjoy the Star Wars comics universe, you will enjoy this series.

Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet

in Black Panther (2016) #1

After a series of writers took turns steering the nation of Wakanda through floods, alien invasions, and general mayhem, writer Ta-Nehisi Coates explores what the ramifications are for the Golden City in a current age.
