some of my favorite comics 12 Giant-Size Defenders #4.  I believe this was a flea market find when I was young.  This comic is not only cool for me because I like the Squadron Sinister/Supreme characters that appeared in the main story, but it's cool for me because of the type of tales that made up the rest of the book.  My young self was thrilled to see the classic Ditko Doctor Strange reprint story that ended the book.  My young self was even more ecstatic to discover the early 1940s Sub-Mariner reprint from Human Torch comics that appeared in the middle of the issue.  A nice issue with a mix of the 40s, 60s, and 70s.

some of my favorite comics 11 Thor #387.  This was one of the first 2 or 3 issues of Thor I ever owned.  The insane struggle of Thor vs. the Celestial began here and continued over the next two issues.  This story provided an exciting, action-filled jolt to my young imagination.  I bought this comic off the spinner rack of a local drug store-- the same drug store that supplied me with many of my first comics.  Ron Frenz's art on Thor is wonderful.  Frenz is one of three artists that I consider Thor's great artists (the other two being Kirby and Simonson).
