31.Oct.2011 Three New York City classics in one comic!
The esteemed Sean T. Collins wrote a Spider-Man story for Spider-Man: Marvel Adventures #19. I’m a big fan of Sean’s and a big fan of the Friendly Neighborhood Wall-crawler, but kicking the story off with pizza… well, that was the extra cheese on this metaphorical pie!
07.Jun.2011 Forever as ewoks
The Troll King by Kolbeinn Karlsson is a remarkably bizarre comic. It’s mesmerizing, too. If you’re a fan of off-kilter… well, anything… you’ll love it! Plus, it has references to ewoks! Good stuff.

I’m not big on naming favorites.

However, selecting a choice book to highlight when this question comes up is highly preferable [...]
