    Default Latest Classic Comic You Read

    It had to surface once more, a lot of comics don't lead to a lot of discussion, and this is the best place to state what you think of them, if you read them again yourself, or someone else read them and posted about it

    I'm currently reading Justice League Europe, right now I'm the Breakdown arc
    Unfortunately, I don't have the Justice League America issues, so I'm missing out some important events in the story

    That is, the heritage of the Kryptonian Warrior: Kal-El, son of Jor-El

    I recently picked up a bunch of random Bronze Age comics from a dollar bin, and last night I read Marvel Two-in-One #24 (with Black Goliath). Good dialogue (except for from the villain) and solid, if unspectacular art, but the villain, the Hijacker, was ineffably lame. I do like Bill Foster, though.
    I also just finished the Kitty Pryde & Wolverine miniseries from 1984. Good stuff, just before the X-Men jumped the shark.

    Avengers #211- Captain America is looking to thin out the Avengers' ranks (not sure why). Moondragon compels a bunch of heroes to come to Avengers Mansion and a new team is formed that includes Yellowjacket and Tigra amongst the mainstays. It was actually a pretty stupid issue, really. It ends with the Avengers going on tv and announcing their new lineup. Just an excuse for some guest stars? I dunno. I'll keep it but, eh.
    My mom thinks I'm cool.

    You know that moment when you heard a Madonna song on an oldies station..?
    I just had that feeling.
    LOL.
    BTW- Breakdowns was a fantastic story. It could've had better covers, though. Nevertheless, it ended the run perfectly. It also made it a hard act to follow and I couldn't get into the new direction Leagues afterwards. However, the cover to JLA #61 was divine. Shame it was over.

    Now for me...
    As I'm re-reading my Showcase Presents and just happened to have started today... I would say the latest classic comic I read was the Superman story from Action Comics #241.

    Manga is a comic book, so I don't see anything against listing manga here

    Honestly, the stuff after Breakdowns, especially Jurgens, was really good. It just had the unfortunate luck of following right after Giffen & DeMatteis. I would recommend, in hindsight, taking a break from it before continuing so that you can distance the two.

    Cheers! I plan to read two comics worth of stories a day, so it looks like I'll be reading that one tomorrow.

    It started in '87 and I'm currently in the middle of Part 5, which would be around '97.
    Cool.

    A lot of the stuff I read is classic, if you're going to go by before 2000. But the oldest I read recently was the first X-Men from the Adamantium Collection.
    The Wicked + The Divine. TMNT. Uncanny Avengers. Midnighter. IXth Generation. Daredevil. Morning Glories. Street Fighter. Fables. Uncanny X-Men. Bloodshot. Invincible. Ninjak. Mockingbird.

    All I could found of that Justice League of America is the first 25 issues and 3 annuals when it was International
    What's underwhelming in the Europe series is DeMatties leaving, I'll say that run is similar to what you said about the JLA series coinciding with it

    Was this when the Avengers had a six (or was it seven) member limit, dictated by the government? I actually liked this issue, though I'm a sucker for the era of Avengers (really anything Avengers from Roy Thomas through about #300) and I'm not sure what the point of Moondragon's interference was, other than to show what a jerk she is, which I already knew.
