A comiXologist Recommends:
Jonah Chuang recommends United States of Murder, Inc. #1
I don’t want to sound hyperbolic, but almost everything I believe about what makes a hero comes from Brian Michael Bendis (brianmichaelbendis). His portrayal of Peter Parker in Ultimate Spider-Man helped shape my views on what a hero should be, and, indirectly, what kind of person I want to be. And it’s not because he writes the most powerful or the slyest heroes but because he writes some of the most real and complex characters who struggle with the mundane problems we all struggle with. (He also knows how to milk the hell out of dramatic moments to really make you feel those emotional highs and lows.)
In Powers (if you don’t know Powers and its fourteen year run with its original creative team, you should), Bendis and artist Michael Avon Oeming (oeming) bring that same relatability to the grittier, edgier, and more ethically ambiguous characters, Detective Christian Walker and his partner Deena Pilgrim. Their stories have less to do with super heroics than with the crappy personal issues that adults have to deal with as they schlep their way through bureaucracies as small, seemingly-powerless cogs caught up in the intricate and burdensome machine known as society (but yes, there are also a lot of super heroics).
With United States of Murder, Inc., Bendis teams up with Oeming again to tell the story of an America run by gangsters. The story follows one mobster as he attempts to uncover the secrets of the organization he works for. Though this sounds like quite a departure from the superhero stories I just praised Bendis for, it still possesses the same complexity, intrigue, and dynamic/relatable characters for which Bendis has come to be known, with even more shades of gray. If all that’s not enough to sway you, then just know it’s twice the amount of comic from two of today’s greatest talents for regular price.
Jonah Chuang is a Production Coordinator Assistant and 1:1 time traveler. He’s just trying to get to 88 MPH.
If you’ve spent even a modicum of time on the #comics tag in Tumblr, it’s likely that you have seen brianmichaelbendis show up on your dash once or twice, posting some of the best pages in all of comicdom and laying down some serious knowledge.
The world of comics can be a confusing place, and just like the man himself, we are here to help make it a little clearer for all of you. So if you’ve been looking for some suggestions on what Bendis books to read but have been too afraid to ask, take a look at our
comiXology Guide to Brian Michael Bendis
Arguably, the comic that Bendis is best known for is the reboot of Spider-Man’s universe with 2000’s Ultimate Spider-Man, which not only brought Peter Parker’s origins into the modern age, but also kicked off the now-beloved Ultimate Universe. Bendis, along with veteran artist Mark Bagely, took Spidey’s original 11-page origin story and turned it into a seven issue story arc, and continued on for over 100 more issues to become Marvel’s longest running consistent creative duo on a single title.
Bendis continues to helm the Ultimate Spider-Man series with sarapichelli on art and starring fan-favorite Miles Morales.
Bendis and Michael Avon oeming's long running creator-owned series Powers combines the superhero and police procedural genres, and is now in production at FX to get it's own TV series. Powers pits the wiles of two detectives against a world filled with superhumans. The series went on to become an Eisner award winner and still continues to come out in the ongoing Powers: Bureau.
In 2001, Bendis took up the task of writing Daredevil with Alex Maleev on art. The series would go on to become one of the most lauded and character defining runs in the characters storied history. The Bendis run introduced a new love interest into Matt Murdock’s life and saw the reemergence of Kingpin.
Following up Kurt Busiek’s run, Bendis rebooted the Avenger’s series with Avengers Disassembled, which heavily featured the Scarlet Witch and lead directly into the events of the now-beloved House of M event.
An instant classic! Beast travels through time to bring the original X-Men into the present, imploring past-Cyclops to stop his future self from committing genocide on the mutants. Currently at 27 issues, this series is a regular best-seller and is sure to go down as one of the all-time greatest X-Men series.
As if all that wasn’t enough, this weekend (5/10-5/12), we have a sale on a bunch of great creator-owned comics by Bendis including Brilliant, Scarlet, and Jinx. Make sure not to miss out on the limited-time Bendis Bundle to get 5 Bendis collections for 59% off!

Scarlet by Bendis & Maleev
Scarlet is the story of a woman pushed to the edge by all that is wrong with the world. A woman who decides to stand up and fight back. A woman who will not back down. A woman who discovers within herself the power to start a modern American revolution!! In the vein of Alias, Powers, and Jinx, Scarlet debuts a fascinating new comics character that, with every issue, reveals new things about herself against a completely original backdrop of intrigue and drama.
