    I quite liked the Simone All-New Atom, even if just for presenting the idea that the Atom, a shrinking hero and world's smallest man, was dating Giganta, a growing villain and world's largest woman.

    She made Ivy Town weird, but not Doom Patrol weird. It was a cool run.

    Also the Palmiotti/Conner run on Power Girl. I enjoyed their take a lot back then, especially before they started working on Harley Quinn and the latter would sexually harass Karen at every turn. They stopped twelve issues in because the schedule was starting to be too much for Conner if memory serves, but I think they intended to do more.

    Justice League of America's Vibe by Geoff Johns and Andrew Kreisberg which helped in rescuing Vibe from the scrappy heap.

    I also have a soft spot for Atlee's miniseries.

    Damage, one of the only bright spots of DC’s New Age of Heroes...



    DC created their own version of The Hulk, and it was pretty good.
    The design was nice. Both the monster -and- the man were written well. The reaction to a Hulk like being running around the DCU was well done, and Damage’s encounters w. The Suicide Squad and Justice League didn’t feel forced. The encounters also helped establish Damage as a legit heavy hitter without the SS or JLA looking like idiots for the sake of the story.
    The book only scratched the surface, as DC has so many interesting and unused books and crannies that could have been explored via Ethan Avery/Damage.

    So many (which maybe I'll talk about in a later post), but the one I always think of when this subject comes up is VEXT (1999). That lasted all of six issues--from Keith Giffen and Mike McKone. It was so original and not your usual super-hero comic book. Given the talent involved, I thought sure it would go on for awhile--even twenty issues would have been nice.

    Vext was one of many gods, from the Jejeune Realm--he being the god of mishap and misfortune, whose existence was a series of mishaps and misfortunes. He's made redundant and ejected onto Earth where he has to start up a new life.

    Okay, now I can see it!

    Yeah that was a surprisingly good book.

    ... it was sort of like Shadowpact, before Shadowpact.

    Have you read the electric warrior series by Moench and Blaikie from the mid 80s?

    Chain Gang War from John Wagner and Dave Johnson was cruelty cut short despite the great reception.

    I’d have lived that series to have run as intended, although they did a good job of wrapping it up.

    Tell me about Chain Gang War, what was it about?

    3 vigilantes who become sick of the justice system letting them down take the law into their own hands.

    But The Punisher it is not.

    As expected from a writer as clever as Wagner, this is a nuanced approach but not without fun.

    I re-read it a month ago for the first time since it came out and I loved it just as much, albeit for different reasons.

    I opened this thread specifically to mention Primal Force! It was really good, and could've lasted a lot longer; Seagle had so many stories left to tell... *sigh*

    To my knowledge, none of the original characters ever appeared again. Which is a shame, because Meridian and Klaw had so much potential.
