Spider-Man 2099 #1 (November 1992)
Art by Rick Leonardi & Al Williamson
This is one of the greatest issues of a comic i have EVER read.
It might in fact be the greatest issue of a comic i have ever read.
It is simply THAT good.
Ellis, Shalvey and Bellaire should be knighted by the queen for this.
You NEED to read this.
The plot is simple enough.
There’s a kidnapped girl on the 6th floor of a building. Moon Knight has come to rescue her. And there’s bad guys in the way. Simples.
Every single page is phenomenal though.
If you’re not a fan of Moon knight this will change your mind.
Even if you’ve never read a Moon Knight comic you should read this.
What he said.
A comiXologist Recommends:
Michael Crowe recommends Legendary Star-Lord #1
In anticipation of the August 1st release of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel is launching an all new ongoing series titled: Legendary Star-Lord. The series follows Peter Quill (portrayed on-screen by Chris Pratt), as he traverses the galaxy without the help of his fellow Guardians…at least for the moment
Issue #1 introduces us to the titular character, giving us a peek into the life of an orphan from Earth turned intergalactic outlaw. As someone who is unfamiliar with the cosmic corners of the Marvel Universe, I found this issue to be both informative and, most of all, fun. Writer samhumphries infuses the character with an infectious sense of adventure. Peter seems to relish his alter-ego, Star-Lord, and even the trouble it gets him into. But beneath this facade of carefree bravado and effortless charm lies the heart of a hero. In essence, Quill is a do-gooder who doesn’t always go about doing good in the best ways.
Paco Medina’s art harnesses the outlaw narrative by calling to mind westerns through stunning establishing shots and character designs. Paco also illustrates some seriously cool ships and weapons, exciting the scifi swashbuckler in all of us. The coloring, also by Medina, is rich and vibrant, lending a liveliness to the perils of full time space adventuring and thievery. Together they craft a story that is both intriguing and non-threatening for the uninitiated.
