huhwhat saidSo the MAGIK Series is my favorite - the one with Illyana and Storm. It fuckin' kills me that she keeps on contracting the legacy virus. I've always thought that series was a metaphor for sexual child abuse. The way Belasco "steals" her innocence, and how Illyana loses a piece of her soul, but in the end, claims her power back (When she manifests the Soul Sword, it was awesome!). So beautiful.
For Batman, I loved the Killing Joke. It was the first time I understood the connection (call it love? co-dependence? understanding?) between Batman and the Joker.
Yeah, the Phoenix saga is awesome, but everyone knows that one. Also loved the Psylocke/Revanche storyline where Betsy contracted the legacy virus and died (heart-broken but the whole story was so well written and Andy Kubert is an AMAZING artist).
Magik & Storm. Oh I read that sooo long ago. It was a great miniseries. Actually it was one of the only miniseries that was halfway decent.
I liked the Phoenix Endsong mini. Mainly because it felt like the writer had read the whole past and was using the original characters, who felt familiar to me.
I started reading at around Revanche. Andy Kubert is my fave ever!
Anything with the Living Tribunal makes me wet.
The first Deadpool ongoing series wasn't epic but I loved it.
And the whole run of New Mutants where Bill Sienkiewikz pencilled. Graphics were such crap back then but that man had style
