Crack The Spine: AOTB's Comic Book Staff Picks

Posted July 24, 2009 - By Eugene Morton

Comic-Con, the biggest nerd gathering anywhere, has come yet again. While celebrities and geeks alike sweat it out on the show floor in San Diego, we that remain at the air conditioned offices at G4 have compiled a list of our very favorite comic book series of all time. If you're reading this while at Comic-Con then let this be a guide for which trade paperbacks you should spend your greenbacks on. The rest of you can just storm your local shops.

Scott Pilgrim ComicScott Pilgrim - My top comic book series would have to be Brian Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim. I love his art that combines manga, videogame humor and indie music—enough that I even nerded out when he had a signing at Meltdown Comics last year. Plus, fans like me get a feature movie from Edgar Wright starring Michael Cera! - Moye Ishimoto

Beavis & Butthead - I'm going for the random choice and proclaiming that Beavis & Butthead was my favorite comic book series. First of all, we had every single issue, as well as all the collectible cards. Second, the comics belonged to my older brother, and that alone made them cooler than anything else. Of course, I also loved them because they were crude and I wasn't supposed to be reading them which, again, was a coolness factor overload. - Megan Turney

The Walking Dead - I am a man who is morbidly in love with Zombies. They are just the perfect horror monster. They come in many varieties and I love them all. With that said, I would have to choose The Walking Dead as my favorite comic of all time. Each character is significantly developed and the gritty art style keeps my attention like no other comic has in the past. Any fans of horror, comics, or graphic artistry should pick this up from No. 1 and never stop reading. - Robert Vaughn
Spawn - Hands down, my favorite comic book series of all time is Spawn and a big part of that is because it was my first. I've always liked the idea of comics and the art has always been intriguing, but Spawn was the first series I ever read and stuck with. How can you argue with a rich Faust-inspired narrative, demon battles and incredible art? Todd McFarlane, Greg Capullo, thank you! - Eugene Morton

    You know, I pretty much grew up when Spawn made the big scene and oh yeah, does pretty rock! :) Pretty much lived through that era(90's) and later on adapted on to Movies and Animated Series(HBO)...they did it in cartoons!! LOL!!! :)

    But will say I heard of Beavis and Butthead but never read their comic book, the other ones, I can't say. They sound old-school but I may be wrong. Walking Dead does sound something I may enjoy, and I don't know, I want a feature movie as well, LOL!! :) Look at him! Looks like a badass Dennis the Menace!

    Very nice list guys, :)
