some of my favorite comics 4 New Mutants #41.  The New Mutants comic was one of my favorite books as a young reader.  My first issue was #45, but I was able to find recent previous issues soon after, including this one.  This solo Mirage (Dani Moonstar) story was a wonderful character study with beautiful artwork.  Mirage travels home and finds herself in a showdown with death.  I remember reading this comic on a sunny day in front of a picture window, thoroughly finding myself inside the story.  Go get it!

some of my favorite comics 3

Here, in Captain America #224, Cap goes through disorientation as his face seems to have changed, his memory is whacky, and he has some painful bumps on his arm... what has happened?  This issue, when I was a kid, was so odd and offbeat, that it took several reads to straighten out the flashbacks (a hazard of being a kid and knowing nothing).  But, this was one of my first comics, and it has a striking cover.  We also get a guest appearance from the Avengers (did I ever mention that I love Beast as an Avenger?).  This would have been my first Cap comic too.

some of my favorite comics 2 DC Comics Presents #97.  Another favorite from childhood-- but, frankly, many of these favorite comics will be.  I know that will make these favorite picks biased because of sentimental value.  Oh, well.  As long as you folks know that too, I suppose.  Anyway, this was the first issue of DC Comics Presents I bought and, ironically, the last issue produced.  I'll never understand why they would want to cancel it three issues shy of #100.  I enjoyed this issue because it was offbeat and rather dark (at least for a naive kid in the 1980s reading comics).  It's Superman vs. the Phantom Zone criminals in a story that was psychological and dreamlike.  I generally love the DC Comics Presents series.  I always buy a back issue if I see one, and one day in the far future, I may actually find all the issues.  If anyone has any they want to get rid of, let me know!
