    Default What have been your favorite books from IDW over the years?

    For me,

    Locke & Key
    Hands down the masterpiece. So much better than the TV show.

    30 Days of Night
    Some of these minis have been pretty good. The first one that the movie is based on; X-Files/30 Days of Night was solid also; few others. I didn't even mind the recent update on the original.

    Winterworld
    A personal favorite. Really good art and a solid science fiction story.

    Ragnarok
    Walt Simonson's take on a very different Thor. His art is as good as ever.

    Doomsday.1
    A good scifi concept mini from John Byrne. I think this was his last book before he kind of retired from drawing.

    Star Trek
    Many good runs here. The various John Byrne minis earlier on, the Kelvin timeline stuff, even the recent Year Five seems solid. Star Trek/Green Lantern was also a highlight. I've noticed IDW tends to put their better artists on this property.


    There might be some others I forget just now. Been meaning to try G.I Joe: A Real American Hero since I seem to recall enjoying what little I read from the original Marvel run a million years ago and this being the continuation, but it's almost 150 issues in so seems like a big chore to start going through all that...

    Locke & Key : Best Horror series ever. A shame that the TV Show pales in comparison. And I mean big time.

    The Kill Lock: Cannot wait for the final issue

    The Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye a slow burn sure, but well worth it, once it going. This book has it all: drama, comedy, romance, brutal and violent action, political commentary, sci-fi, and a dash of fantasy. Easily one of the best comics written in the last decade and can even rival and surpass the best DC and Marvel comics were publishing at the time while also showing the limitless potential of The Transformers when presented as characters and not as special effects.

    John Byrne's Next Men One of my favorite series from the 90s were revived, reprinted, and Byrne was given a chance to wrap up the series the way he wanted too.

    The Fallen Angel Peter David's dark masterpiece was picked up by IDW just because the EiC at the time wanted to see this series continue after DC cancelled it, joined by new artist J.K. Woodard whose painted style gave this series a much needed shot of a gothic and/or haunted look, that made the The Fallen Angel and her world look creepy and yet real.

    Tend to only have read IDW's Transformers series so stuff I particularly liked from that:

    Simon Furman's various and connected "-Ation" mini-series.

    Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye

    Tom Scioli's Transformers vs. G.I. Joe

    Their whole TMNT line has been great stuff.
    You don't get heaven or hell. Do you know the only reward you get for being Batman? You get to be Batman.

    And so it ends as it began. By the light of two suns. Before stepping into a larger world.

    Because...even in the darkest times, hope cuts through. Hope is the light that lifts us out of darkness.

    IDW's TMNT is the most well written and consistently great comic on the shelves today and it's been that way from issue 1!

    The Green Lantern/Star Trek crossover was pretty epic as well.

    DC: The Flash (Jay & Wally), The Atom (Ray Palmer) , Jack Knight, Stargirl, & Shazam!.
    MARVEL: Daredevil, Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, & Ant-Man (Scott Lang).

    Current Pulls: Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, Venom, Immortal Hulk, Dr. Strange, Star Wars,Shazam, The Flash, & TMNT!

    Definitely TMNT since it's a bit unfair to go for Usagi when only 6 issues were published by IDW.
