As always, these are in no particular order other than as they come to mind or as I happen to see them on the shelves; they’re all treasures.
this is where it all began) where I looked at every single Marvel Micronauts comic from the viewpoint of Young Donist and present-day Donist, and I had a blast doing it…even with the less-than-compelling “New Voyages.” Sadly, if you intend to track this one down, then you are going to have to bargain bin dive to find the actual floppies as licensing purgatory currently prevents any sort of trades from being released. It might take a while, but you should definitely seek these out. Bill Mantlo writing and Michael Golden, Pat Broderick, and Butch Guice illustrating? Dang, Denizens. Such glory indeed.
Mage: The Hero Defined is quite good, and someday we will hopefully see the ending to this tragic trilogy. What’s more, Mage introduced me to the also great Grendel with the backup story “Devil by Deed.” One of my favorite days was meeting Mr. Wagner at the 2007 San Diego Comic Con where he signed issues one and seven of my copies of Mage. This happened on the first day of my first comic convention, and I got to meet one of my main comic book heroes. Not bad. Not bad at all. I often feel that Mage does not get the proper attention it deserves, it is one of those key series in my life that continues to give me the chills (the good kind, by golly) and frequently calls me back to relive Kevin Matchstick’s exploits once again.
