5 Great Comic Runs (In No Particular Order)

When I start reading a new series or an ongoing series with a new creative team, the hope is for me that I am embarking on the beginning of something great. That at some point I will be pulled in and unable to quit until the end. For me, these series did that.

Green Arrow by Mike Grell (Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters 1-3, Green Arrow 1-80, Green Arrow: The Wonder Years 1-4, and Shado: Song of the Dragon 1-4)

I’ve been wanting to make a list about this for a couple weeks and why not now? Here I sit, 4 in the afternoon on my third glass of gin and juice (They keep gettin’ stronger and stronger) on a day off.
