Hmm... If you're going to go jumping into the back issue bins, here's a couple of my favorite gigs:
SUPERMAN ADVENTURES #57
(I thought this could wind up being my ONE shot at writing SUPERMAN, so I threw EVERYTHING into that one! It's got some really nifty art by Cameron (SEAGUY) Stewart-- who was nice enough to give me PAGE 21 as a gift-- which is one of my FAVORITE single pages I've ever done for any superhero project! And, hey, don't knock the SUPERMAN ADVENTURES books-- that's where Mark Millar did some of the world's most amazing Superman stories!).
MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #116
(This was a dream project! I got to do a TWO-GUN KID story with one of my idols, GIL KANE! It's a really solid 8 pager too! And, you can ALSO see it in the MARVEL VISIONARIES: GIL KANE collection-- along with some of the story's original UNDOCTORED/BLOODIER art thrown in the back as a kind of DVD extras!)
MIDNIGHT SUNS UNLIMITED #9
(Got to do my LONGEST single issue superhero story to date! A 40+ page story starring the BLAZING SKULL (with special guest stars UNION JACK & THE MIGHTY DESTROYER). It was all done in an over-the-top 40's movie-serial kinda way. And it featured some great art by James (Liberty Project) Fry. And a really sweet Alex Ross cover-- showing off the Blazing Skull in all his Ghost-Rider-y glory!)
JUSTICE LEAGUE ADVENTURES TPB
(This reprints 3 of my JUSTICE LEAGUE ADVENTURES stories (#6, #11, and #13). And I'm proud of each and every one of 'em! They're three good meat-and-potato superhero yarns: #6 features a gathering of over 40 DC villains-- as one of them prepares to auction off a set of incapacitated superheroes-- namely Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman! #11 was a story about coping with tragedy-- a Flash & Atom team up that involved time travel (my favorite genre of science fiction-- I LOVE doing time travel stories), and #13 was all about a brand new superhero and their ONE chance to join the JLA-- and THIS story is one of my all time favorites! If you can't shell out the dough for the JLA TPB-- try digging this up as a back issue. It was also reprinted in the JUSTICE LEAGUE ADVENTURES DIGEST: FRIENDS & ENEMIES-- and it was ALSO reprinted as BOTH a free giveaway comic at Toys R' Us AND for Sargento Cheese. I tell ya-- DC really LIKED to reprint that one!).
and, my ALL-TIME favorite (good luck finding THIS one)...
REN & STIMPY SPECIAL #3: MASTERS OF TIME & SPACE
(There's just no way to REALLY describe this one... It's a 48pg. Interactive Choose-Your-Own-Adventure story that ALSO involved time travel. The book kinda folds in on itself, making you read scenes you've already read before-- but as different SETS of time-traveling Rens & Stimpies-- and, each time you read a scene AGAIN, you've learned more information in the interum, so all the dialogue takes on new meanings. It's really weird. And (I think) funny. The bizzare thing? Even though it's only 48pgs. long, one of the possible five possible stories is actually 56 pages long. Funky, huh? It took me 6 months and LOTS of flowcharts to make sure it all worked! This one is 48pgs. of pure dedication and love! If you like my stuff-- THIS is the one to hunt down!)
