If you love that comic so much, why don't you marry it?

The concept is simple, if you could only read ONE comic for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? It can be a single comic or a particular arc within a series.

Mine would be either Watchmen or The Great Darkness Saga. It can't imagine either of those getting 'stale'.

I'm going to say Kingdom Come for now, but I may change my mind as I think about it more.

Omega Vision
Complete run of the Sandman.

Marry a comic? I have enough paper cuts on my di... er... I mean I don't want paper cuts on my dick.




Y The Last Man. love

You're a sick man, srank.

What's your pick Prep?

Either the Watchmen, or Batman: The Long Halloween

Hm, Millar's run on Swamp Thing never gets old... Though I wouldn't mind Final Crisis either. mmm

As far as a single comic, probably Green Lantern: Will World.

Either The Avengers or The Justice League, because I would be able to see many heroes instead of just one, and the comic heroes that I did not see in their own books would make regular guest appearances.

Either the Brood Saga, X-Men or one of Lucifer's arcs. Can't really make up my mind. Too hard.



Geoff Johns run on Flash (Wally), Simonsen's run on X-Factor, or Morrison's run on X-Men.

Which storyline, JAKE!?

It's a hardone, probably the Avengers under Busiek or either iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Single Issue? Action775.
TPB? Kingdom Come.
A writers 'run'? Johns JSA or GL, Sandman, or Morrison's Batman,
Event? Final Crisis.
Ongoing? Detective or GL.
Maxi? 52.

If it's not cheating, I'd pick an ongoing, probably ASM.

If I have to pick a limited run, maybe the "Earth X/Universe X/Paradise X" series.

Busiek/Perez run.

Seeing the title of this thread, thinking of just a single self contained volume...

The first thing that popped into my head was Daredevil: Love & War, a 1986 Graphic Novel by Frank Miller & Bill Sienkiewicz. That was back in the days when a Graphic Novel was just a single story running 64-80 pages, in large print on glossy paper; not miniseries eventually collected into a single paperback, which are popularly called Graphic Novels these days in the media (instead of the right term.)

Frank Miller, along with Alan Moore, owned the comics industry in 1986 - The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One and Elektra: Assassin all came out that same year, and Miller was at the height of his creative powers. And Bill Sienkiewicz was making that incredible Gustav Klimt-like painted style his signature that year, which carried him into other mediums.

All star superman.

FF#72: Where Soars the Silver Surfer

Elektra: Assassin.
Each panel of art could freaking stand alone unhindered, and the way the narrative interacts with how the reader perceives each stylized deviation in color, line work, and depth make the story breathe.

Infinity Gauntlet.

Fixed. shifty

As a big event type story arc, I'd go with COIE.

Probably the colored series that was done by Loeb and Sale. Spider-Man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow, Hulk: Gray. Though if I had to choose one, I'd say its Spider-Man: Blue.

I probably wouldn't mind having to read Planetary or Ex Machina either... mmm
