    I don't know about everyone else, but my top choice would definitely be...

    Hellboy: Seed of Destruction

    I haven't read this yet... Is the omnibus and library Seed of Destruction versions the same thing, just packaged differently?

    That's my assumption. I only own the 4-issue mini-series from Legend/DarkHorse Comics (1994):

    That's awesome. Thanks for sharing. I just ordered the omnibus for this. SoD is also listed online in a few bloggers top ten lists.

    The Library Seed of Destruction contains the first two collected editions: Seed of Destruction (the 4 issue story) and Wake the Devil in an oversized hard cover format

    The Omnibus Seed of Destruction contains those plus several shorts in a standard collection sized paperback
    Seed of Destruction
    The Wolves of Saint August
    The Chained Coffin
    Wake the Devil
    Almost Colossus
    1993 Promotional Comic
    1994 Promotional Comic

    I don't know about everyone else, but another favorite would be from Savage Dragon #34-35 (1993):

    The World's Greatest Super-Hero
    meets
    the World's Greatest Paranormal Investigator!
