Welcome to the Favorite Comic Runs' spotlight, Jason Aaron!
The writer has quite a body of work with Marvel, but this week, we want to give praise to two of his most popular (and recent) works: WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN and THOR: GOD OF THUNDER. The X-Men story followed the aftermath of SCHISM -- another storyline Aaron wrote -- and ran for over 40 issues. This run saw the creation of a new school for new mutants, a brand new Hellfire Club, and, of course, focused on Wolverine as the school's headmaster and its students. Aaron's spent roughly half as many issues with the son of Odin, but during that time, he's dished out some massive stories that involve a character seeking to destroy all Gods, Malekith's rise to power, and now the fate of Midgard. Both series' have their own strengths, but if you had to pick one, which would it be and why?
As always, voting will remain open until Friday morning (ET). If you haven't given either a shot, this should give you more than enough time to pick up a trade or two and make up your mind. Additionally, we encourage you to speak up after you cast your vote. Why bother, you ask? Because we'll include two exceptional posts in the results article (which is posted on Friday). One will be selected for each story, so don't forget to elaborate after picking one!
Last but not least, everyone say "you're the best around" to the Comic Viner The_Tree. Why bother giving this person your blind praise? Because The_Tree was the very first person to guess this week's match-up based on the small teaser we provided in Friday's article. Well done, The_Tree!
Check the homepage on Friday to see which story won and why. In the meantime, feel free to make future match-up suggestions in the comments below or via Twitter.
