Silver Surfer Requiem 1-4 (Marvel 2007) - I remember liking this when it first came out but now on re-read it's going into my ever growing ebay-sale pile. Yeah the art is nice (although I'm not Ribic's biggest fan) but the story and script by Straczynski is pretty poor. The Surfer's in trouble and goes on a meandering, melancholy stroll around the universe moping all the while. I found myself not caring which is massively counter productive to the stories intention.
Marvels 1-4 (Marvel 1994) - In contrast to the above, I didn't like this when I read it all those years ago but now have a better appreciation for it. I think part of my dislike is still present today though. I'm just not a fan of the hyper realistic art style in super hero books. Yes, Ross' art is lush and spectacular but I much prefer a slightly cartoony look for the spandex crowd. Having said that, I did enjoy it. Busiek is really hit and miss for me but I think pretty much nailed this look at the emerging super hero community through the eyes of a press photographer really well. The 1st issue that deals with the Human Torch and Namor is a bit weak but the remaining issues all have some sort of impact and are well developed.
Cybernary 2.0 1-6 (Image 2001) - I bought this when it came out but never read it. I was kind of a snob back then and balked at the non-conforming Eric Canete art. I was going through the longboxes recently and pulled it out. Wow, what a stooge I was back then. This is a truly lovely looking book. Canete in conjunction with inker Vlasco and colourist Strachan produce brilliant visuals that have an abundance of punch, style and crispness. Alongside Canete, writer Joe Harris weaves a great tale that focuses on the island of Gamora that longs for a new leader now that Kaizen is dead (due to the Authority's actions). Cyborgs and mechs feature heavily and the characters personalities are well rounded and individual. Overall it's a great story with everyone involved firing on all cylinders.
