Born Again

Is it a cliché to list such a monumental issue? Probably? Well, I don’t care. This is one of the greatest comic issues of all time as we see Matt Murdock manipulated by the Kingpin and lose absolutely everything when his ex-girlfriend gives away Daredevil’s secret identity. Intelligent, efficient and tragic. I wish all comic issues could be like this.


Moon Over Harlem

Luke Cage obviously shows up on this list (twice). I love a good noir, and putting Luke into fedoras, spats and speakeasies just seems completely, well, right. Great, moody artwork and great dialogue you can dig. Just a lot of fun.


None Are So Blind

I’m a sucker for sweet and touching stories, and this is one of the best ever in comics. Hulk, (who narrates his own tale!), saves a remote village and helps restore the vision of a young blind girl. And what does she see when she looks at him? The Hulk’s not a monster but a noble spirit.


Brawl Fest, Eh?

Oh, Canada! I’ve put this on the list because, well, how could a proud Canadian not put an Alpha Flight comic on here? Plus, it was the very first Marvel comic I ever owned. I knew nothing about the characters but loved the battle between Guardian and Wolverine. Canadian vs. Canadian. How much more non-Canadian can you get?


Hawkeye by Matt Fraction & David Aja

This issue is like chocolate and peanut butter. Just pure fun and gives me a huge sugar rush. The entire Aja/Fraction Hawkeye run is incredible but this issue is an adrenaline rush that must have been a blast conceiving. If you’ve already read it, go read it again. And if you haven’t? I’m jealous that you get to experience it for the first time.


Luke Cage: Disassembled

When Luke Cage became a father in the comics, he became more than just a super hero. He became human. In this issue, faced with the new Superhuman Registration Act, Luke and Jessica must decide how to protect his daughter – and Harlem. It’s this fatherly love that I tap into for my new LUKE CAGE - MARVEL DIGITAL ORIGINAL series. And there’s Canadian mentions here too! Notice a theme here for me…?


Chris Claremont & Dave Cockrum’s X-Men

Claremont. Charles Xavier. Magneto. Nazis. Need I say anymore?
