Is that the ASM story arc written by JMS? I enjoyed it, too. So much so that every other page I was muttering "Wow--just...wow," and I even tried to explain to J. what was going on.Originally Posted by Stargazer
If you liked that, Star, may I recommend JMS' equally excellent Supreme Power, his re-envisioning of the Squadron Supreme?
JMS' versions of Hyperion and Nighthawk are the most fascinating and vibrant character studies I've seen in over a decade.
Also, if you enjoy JMS' "ultra-realism" style, let me point out Kurt Busiek's Astro City.
I had stayed away from the stores for years. (1998 through 2001 were especially a weak time for comic books.) Then, around 2001/02, I stepped into a store and rediscovered series like Planetary and The Authority and writers like Mark Millar and Brian Michael Bendis. Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in.God, why did I peek back into the comic world? I'd managed to break free for several years. Now my local comic store will have me panting at the door as each new issue shows up. It's like crack cocaine, I swear.
But, yes, JMS' Amazing Spider-Man is perhaps one of my favorite series right now. I like his realistic portrayal of Peter and Mary-Jane's marriage. When I come home from the store, it's the first one off the pile I read.
