    Default Your Greatest Modern Runs by author

    Quarantine yourself brings out the oddest ideas! Forgive me. But thinking of my most enjoyable arcs, runs, or anything in between with no real time constraint other than sometime ďrecentlyĒ.

    Brubakerís Cap and Winter Soldier.
    Fractionís Hawkeye and Ironman
    Deconnickís Captain Marvel
    Liuís Black Widow
    Hickmanís Secret Warriors and Fantastic Four
    Bendisí Daredevil
    Whedonís Astonishing X-men

    Iím exhausted, but so much more to be said here. Any favorites out there for anyone else. During this time of covid19, these are oneís Iíd recommend.

    I loved the characterisation and how modern it felt at the time. He was a writer who let Iceman do things and be a leader in an era where Bobby was mostly wallpaper. He lead a small band of X-men, people he barely knew on the run against Operation: Zero Tolerance. Kelly introduced Cecilia Reyes, who instantly became a favourite character of mine. Every comic I read of his was a joy to read, despite the fact he was getting overrun by editorial mandates who were dismantling his plans on a weekly basis. He didn't have the freedom Hickman does these days. Carlos Pacheco and Peterson were his artists, as well.

    Marrow and Sabra were excellent under his pen. Obscure characters I could care less about who stole scenes like they we born to be X-men, then they left after Kelly did.

    Edit: Wait, Marrow stayed longer only to lose her edge.

    Dan Slott's Amazing Spider-Man/Superior Spider-Man (Superior is basically a continuation of Slott's Amazing so I think it counts)
    Brian Michael Bendis' Ultimate Spider-Man (Bendis is not the most well-liked writer in comics nowadays, but this runs proves that he can be a fantastic writer)
    Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men
    Jeremy Whitley's Unstoppable Wasp
    Nick Spencer's Superior Foes of Spider-Man
    Matt Fraction's Hawkeye (Issue #3 of this series is the most perfect single-issue story from any comic ever)
