What is your single favorite comic book? Mine is Iron Man #206. It was one of my first comic books and it has Iron Man, Hawkeye and Mockingbird fighting Goliath, i never get sick of reading it.

To select a single issue from all the great writing we have been seeing lately is kind of difficult. (Take note: This is a Renaissance of comic creation). But if I had to select one issue, without a doubt, Charlemagne #1 by Defiant. The story was very inspirational.

I'm still up in the air about the single issue, but as far as trades go--my copy of Dawn: Lucifer's Halo is probably the book I go back most to re-read. That and Kingdom Come.

My favorite is my Gold Key copy of "Space Ghost #1". Not so much for the story or the art, but for the memories of watching the cartoon as a kid.

The sad thing is, I don't own this comic, I just have the trade paperback of the whole story, but I was always blown away by the issue in which the Flash (Barry Allen, for those of you playing at home) sacrificed himself to thwart the Anti-Monitor back during the original Crisis on Multiple Earths. In a lot of ways, Barry was a great inspiration to me, since he was as much if not more of an "everyman" than Clark Kent, and here he was in that comic willing to go the distance, no matter the cost. He defined heroism and bravery for me in many ways. In that one act, he showed me how important it is to do the right thing, regardless of consequence. It always comes back to me when someone asks what's so special about comics. :)

i was young and probably reading spiderman, when i went into my first comic shop, and saw this, and wanted it just for the cover, my mom made me put it back, and then my dad took me back the next day and bought it for me. i read it in the car and it was my first view of comic book blood. and it was glorious.

I agree it's tough to pick a single issue. There are, however, a number of single issues that I treasure, either to re-read or because I have that issue in my collection. A few would be
Tales to Astonish #93 First Hulk meets Silver Surfer.
Amazing Spiderman #14 First Green Goblin.
Fantastic Four #29 It Started on Yancy Street.
Avengers #57 Enter the Vision

Its too hard for me to pick a single favorite issue.

I would have to pick Secret Wars (the first one, way back when) as my favorite story.

lots of faves, but the monumental issue was an Amazing Spider-Man. i cant even tell you the issue number... on the cover: Spidey is underground with water spilling from sewer pipes all around him, and it looks for certain that he's doomed. Im sure some Spidey guru can recall it right off the top of their head! Maybe an early 100s issue; John Romita. Anyway, up until this comic which my cousin owned and let me read, my only knowledge of Spider-Man was from the Electric Company on PBS and the reruns of the '60s cartoons. So much to my joy was the discovery of: even cooler stories, an entire universe of characters, and the inspiration to create drawings as good as those comic books!

I believe you are thinking of Amazing Spider-Man #33.

I would also have an aneurysm trying to pick my single favorite title. So I have also decided to go with a trade, Midnight nation. I just love the way that story made you think about weather or not you would sacrifice yourself to save someone else. So many people today don't bother to do anything that helps out someone other then themselves.

My favorite book without any thought has to be Amazing Spiderman 129 the first apperance of punisher the story was good the art was great and not only that it was a major unveiling of a major marvel character although it didn't look that way in the story. Marvel could have let this be a stand alone story and we never would have had the big punisher crazy of the early 1990's

It's next to impossible to figure this out! I've read so many comics over the past 20 years... but the one that's currently sticking in my mind is Ultimate Spider-Man # 13.

There ain't no way I could pick a favourite out of my collection. I've recently re-catalogued my collection with a huge wad of Excel spreadsheets and going through each one it was easy to get sidetracked with the "Wow, that was a great story" and to stop and read for a while. No, I couldn't pick one out of the many.

Is that the one where he reveals his identity to Mary Jane? If so, that is a good one.

When i was a kid it was X-Men # 141 "Day of future past" Seeing wolvie become just bones just amazed me and then in the past seeing them fight the Brotherhood was really cool. Nowadays i read the trades so i don't mess with my books.

This one is tough, but I've been saying pretty much all my life that my favorite Spider-man issue was Amazing Spider-man #6. It is certainly the one single issue I have read the most.

If I wish to leap into the Modern Age of comics, I will have to say Fantastic Four #262, which I always felt had a little something for everybody. Or the X-Men "God Loves Man Kills"...
