Not much interest in the Crossgen and Ultraverse stuff, but I might get a Doombringer to go with Power Man and the inevitable new classic Iron Fist.

 

From yesterday I'd get Poison for sure, since basically every Silver/Bronze/Copper Age Spidey character is a yes.

IMHO Negation was the singular high-water mark for Crossgen, with The First being the only other book that somewhat held my interest. Negation was better than the majority of popular Marvel/D.C./Image titles at the time.

I loved The First. But I also admit I’m biased and enjoy god/cosmic-based comics the most. And Bart Sears and Andy smith’s art sure helped as well.

Hey @detectivehoag - thanks once again for keeping this thread alive! How about I start back up on Sunday December 3rd? And not to sway your choices or anything, but I rarely post anything directly related to the ratzies, their insignia, other similar hate groups or those 'monger'ing in 'hate'...

@beamish Sounds like a plan.  I’ll plan on your return on the third.   Welcome back.

@thor-el Same here. Gods and Bart-art were a winning combo for me and inspiration enough to collect 20-25 issues. We also agree on Annihilation, Andrea Di Vito and Paul Pelletier (loved his Negation work, obviously) art. I also like Tom Grummett whose art (good at team books with many characters) felt similar to Pelletier. At least it did in Marvel’s T-Bolts and DC’s Power Company.

Doombringer has a cool look.

All of those artists are criminally underrated.

We agree, completely. Di Vito might be the most underrated of the bunch IMO. His super clean pencils combined with a rare knack for ‘Drawing the Marvel Way’ with pitch perfect scales and heroes that look exactly as artists were trained to draw them back when that was a thing during the Bronze Age, all make for a complete joy to visually consume.

Well said gentlemen, though I'd mark Grummett (a true master and someone whose work I've long been a fan of) as the most underrated.

Regarding today's choices, I'd be in for any and all members of the groups mentioned. I always loved the Forever Yesterday designs for the Avengers, especially Horus. SO much better than his standard classic 616 look.
