Thanks I D M. I ordered the Johnny THM. I'm loving my 90s comics that I have. 90s were just a great time for everything. :dadjoke:

Cool, that makes me want to dig for the old issues in the badement myself. As I said, no money back guarantee from me, but let me know what you think when you got it.

Invader Zim is good too. And it's an actual cartoon.

Yes, Pluto is a masterpiece (And Urasawa is the biggest Tezuka fan )

My favourite Marvel from late 80s / early 90s were those 2-issues in one that you flipped over and read from the back as well.  Some great weird characters mixed in with the usual ones there.  Anyone remember those?

 

*edit* Found it

Marvel Comics Presents

So actually 4 stories per issue, 2 were ongoing and 2 were obscure 1-offs with lesser known characters.

Wonder if my parents still have my old comics in the attic....

I always loved Marvel Comics Team-Up, especially when they combined two characters that had no business being in the same comic

They are ok, but they don’t come close to living up to how cool the art is. Got them at half price books for 25 cents. 
 

I see a lot of good stuff in this thread!

 

@Rubin Farr: Doomsday Clock was amazing, don’t believe what the interwebs haters say about it. Bringing the characters into the mainstream continuity was awesome. Especially with Johns at the helm. His Green Lantern run could be my favorite of all time- which is also pulling from old Alan Moore material (get DC Universe By Alan Moore if u don’t have it!) 

Also- Gaiman’s Eternals is great, up in my favorites as well.

@dcom: Morrison is awesome. I loved Nameless, Multiversity, 52 (all his DC stuff, really), Marvel Boy and Skrull Kill Krew. Idk if any of u have read his GL run- but it’s pretty sweet. It’s classic Morrison insanity, so u don’t really need to know much going in. I guess it helps reading his other crazy DC stuff, there are some call backs to Multiversity and Final Crisis. I still like Geoff John’s GL the best, but the art and craziness of Morrison and Liam Sharp is pretty fucking rad. It changes throughout the series too, going from more classic styles to modern, but remaining trippy as hell the whole time:

Yeah, moebius is probably my favorite. It’s crazy how much stuff I loved growing up that he was a part of. The Rene Laloux movies (moebius worked on time masters) are pretty much the all time greatest creations.

Moebius only did design work on Les maîtres du temps tho, not Fantastic Planet (that's upon drawings by Roland Topor) or Gandahar (that's Philippe Caza).

I know, and honestly light years is my favorite over all, and fantastic planet has my favorite soundtrack of laloux’s films (serges piano guy, Alain goraguer). But the art in time masters is so good.

Did u ever see “dead times”? That was “fantastic”.
