I'm a huge comic fan. I have been buying comics since the 70s. My local comic shop dropped the ball on my pull box too many times, and a year or more so ago, I pretty much stopped all my comic collecting. It's a shame, because there is SO much good stuff out there. I have most of the spotlights, and a sprinkling of other titles. What I would hope could come from this thread, is to have a bunch of you comic guys, that KNOW modern TF comics well, come together, and agree on a "must read" list. For example..when it was DONE and most agreed on the must reads, it could be stickied, or referenced for guys like me that want to get back into it, or people that just have an interest. For example, you should tell a run, or book, and WHY you think its important to TF fiction. The spotlights I have a great, but if I were to suggest anything for the list I would suggest 2 things.. LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS. Why: because its a nearly flawless story about no names that makes you care about them. The story itself has been told many different ways throught history, but the way this one is laid out with no name TF characters in such a mortal suicide mission makes each page shine. ORIGINS:MEGATRON. I think that's what its called. I have this 4 (i think its 4) issue run about how Megatron was a regular ol' worker and depicts his rise up through the gladiator ranks in kaon, how he gets some of his signature looks, how he meets starscream..for any fan of Megatron, I would point to THIS as Canon.
