Right now I'm re-reading Justice. I can't explain why I think it is so cool. Maybe it's because I was hooked on Super Friends, both the cartoon and the comic growing up - and that Challenge of the Super-Heroes live action special on NBC. I can't believe I bought the individual issues, then the hardcover, then the softcover, then a few of the action figures. But the story is awesome! And it's the right size, too! All of the previous DC stuff Alex Ross did was the over-sized graphic novels with Paul Dini...
This is like choosing between Mary Ann and Ginger; Betty or Veronica. I like Spider-Man. Ultimate Spider-Man got me reading the character. I started reading comic books a couple of years after Gwen Stacy died, around '74. One of my first comics was the ASM where Spider-Man faced Tarantula. Spider-Man saw Gwen, got chained by The Gremlin and thrown off the bridge. I never got the next issue, but I can only assume Spider-Man survived. HA! :) I tried the mainstream Spider-titles and could never get into it. I've picked up a few animated and all-ages tie-in titles. Jeff Parker comes close. I have to go with Ultimate Spider-Man. It lays out the whole story. I want to keep up with Miles Morales, but Bendis put such a great "The End" on Peter Parker...Maybe I'll follow Miles through trade paperbacks.
I enjoy Bendis' New Avengers. I didn't pick that up monthly, I picked up the trades. I like his concept of the team, that it should be where you find Marvel's A-list heroes. If you find Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman on the Justice League; wouldn't you find Daredevil and Spider-Man on The Avengers? The problem with The Avengers was all the events and the splintering of the team. My Avengers had Wonder Man in a leisure suit.
If there is someone with a fresh spin, it's Bendis.
I have the Dredd DVD...I still haven't watched it...even though I like Karl Urban's work. Doom was pretty good; and, he's an awesome "Bones" McCoy. I would probably rank Spider-Man higher, just because Spider-Man is still more family-(read kid)friendly than Batman Begins, Man of Steel and Dredd. Both my boys ask to watch The Avengers, and all of the Marvel super hero films and Spider-Man before they ask to watch Batman. I have to admit, that as much of a DC fan as I am, the DC films are just not fun. Don't get me wrong, they're good stories, but they're not as fun as The Avengers was.
Wow, hadn't thought that with the red uniforms they look like The Incredibles! HA! Wonder if there will be a grand Invaders, FF, Incredibles crossover with Robinson writing! Can't wait to see what he and Kirk are bringing.
I'm surprised that NCIS hasn't been a comic book. That would be my pick. I would love to see an all-ages Gilligan's Island comic book. If The Simpsons and Futurama can be comics... I'm excited to see The Six Million Dollar Man: Season Six coming in March from Dynamite! I grew up on that show. I'd like to see Batman '66 develop into a "Season Four". That's another show I grew up on. Probably, most of all I'd like to see a Gilligan's Island comic.
