In my opinion a great issue #1 needs five things:
-some sort of action
-some sort of mystery
So with that being said here are a few examples of the very best issue #1's I've ever read.
I don't think anyone in comics does a better issue #1 than Brian K. Vaughan
So many interesting characters and so many questions left unanswered. This was near flawless in my opinion.
I'd never read a Superman comic before this and in just one issue Grant Morrison made him my all time favorite character.
So there are a few of mine. What are some of your favorite issue #1's?
