Oh yeah, those were the days!
I was a Byrne victim, and a Frank Miller fan.
Knew of Mignola and probably would’ve gotten Hellboy, but Legend helped (and Hellboy is pretty frickin’ cool. Good creator owned lifespan still going).
Knew of Art Adams from FF #347-349 with Simonson, but Legend helped (and I enjoyed the hell out of Monkeyman & O’Brien. Nowhere near enough issues/stories.
Friends come over and know who’s shotglass is mine).
Then I just decide to try out Paul Chadwick’s Concrete.
Okay, where have I been? Backtrack and even better (seriously).
If you’ve never read any, try it. If my name isn’t enough for you, trust @njerry’s judgement. There are others too. Has to be.
Mike Allred’s Madman? (invited to the Imprint with the second issue?). That was a very cool find for me, and he’s had (is having) a very good career.
1993 and for a few more years they were number ONE for me.
Image was just artists that couldn’t write (to me, and at that time).
I would’ve been buying big two stuff (more DC), but can’t remember what from back then.
This stuff was the shit.
Mother------, just realized that was 25 years ago.
