I've started reading the original Amazing Spider-Man run. I'm currently on Issue #4 (first appearance of Sandman).

Digital of course.

Werewolf by night [72 series] or is that 73 oh will it the series from the 70s good stuff


The Ploog titles from the 70's are great, too bad he didn't stick around too long on them. The WWBN, also the Man-Thing issues were good, Frankenstein, tough to grade those without stopping & reading them.

I don't get to read too much these days but a couple years ago I got the reprints of Cerebus 1-50, wound up reading all the way to 112, what good stuff. The letters from the editor & the reader letters are half the enjoyment so the complete reprints are the way to go. Toward the end it was fascinating in a car-wreck sort of way, the reader backlash after the rape issue sent the title into a tailspin & it never recovered, but it was great while it lasted. I think the Mick Jagger / Keith Richards parody in 85 & the Secret Sacred Wars parody in 81-84 are some of the biggest LOL issues ever, can probably find them for under a buck too.

I really loved Cerebus back in the early 80s and at one time had just about a full run except for like the first nine issues, wish i still had em but i sold em before i moved to FL Wall

I just read the House of M mini for the first time and I loved it. Especially Peter's reaction to the whole thing. Are the Spider-Man tie-ins worth picking up?

After finally re-obtaining all the issues, I finally went back and reread the Fatal Attractions storyline from the X-Men books.

Have been reading Giffen/Dematties/Mcguire Justice League stories; I didn't get them when they first came out but discovered them recently thanks to a flea market bargain box. Batman decking Guy Gardner: hilarious!

As of now I'm trying to work my way thru two back-issue series. The first is the 375-425 issues of Action Comics, the second is 20-30 of the first volume of Power pack.

I just bought some back issues myself at the comic store near me.

I got:

Spider-Man Unlimited #4 from 1993
Avengers #301
The Avengers Double-Sized Annual #14

In both Avengers they have Fantastic Four in them which i thought was a bonus
