    Default What was your favorite series from DC in the 80's?

    To many, the 80's was an era of unparalleled creativity at DC. From horror to science fiction to fantasy to westerns to regular superhero stories, you could find pretty much anything you wanted during that era. As such, I wanted to see what everyone loved from this period.

    For me, it's Green Lantern. From Marv Wolfman to various fill in writers to Len Wein, I love this era through and through.



    My other favorites:

    Cary Bates on the Flash



    Paul Levitz on the Legion of Superheroes:

    DC COMICS PRESENTS. Every month, Superman was paired up with another DC superhero...sometimes A-list stars like Superman himself, but other times, obscure heroes who never headlined their own books. It was a great book for seeing a wide cross-section of the DCU, with Superman as the anchor.

    I'll go with the original Justice League International. One of the most fun books I have ever read, and Giffen and DeMatisse wrote every character pretty much perfectly.
    Cyclops was right

    2) Justice League International
    3) Suicide Squad
    4) Wonder Woman (George Perez)
    5) All-Star Squadron
    6) DC Comics Presents
    7) Blue Devil
    8) Booster Gold
    9) Legion of Super Heroes (Paul Levitz)
    10) Superman (John Byrne)

    Hard to really narrow it down to one series, especially in the late 80's post-Crisis period.

    My favourite pre-Crisis series was definitely All-Star Squadron. I loved old school Earth-2.



    Post-Crisis: Probably the Question by Denny O'Neill and Denys Cowan.

    For me it's Green arrow by Grell, New teen titans, Suicide squad and pre-Vertigo books like Swamp Thing and Hellblazer

    New Teen Titans. It holds a special place for me, I actually learned to read before pre-school with that comic (and lots of help, of course).

    Right there with you. It also had one of my favourite JLA/JSA team-ups of all time, versus Degaton and the Crime Syndicate. Take THAT Forever Evil!

    Blue Beetle
    Question
    GA
    JLI
    Omega Men
    BATO
    Booster Gold
    Suicide Squad
    Infinity Inc.
    I can't get to 10.
    But if I had only one vote I would go Blue Beetle that was an underappreciated book. I liked all of the ones I listed a lot.

    It's kinda hard not to go with Swamp Thing.

    A few books that I wish would get more love are Thriller, Nathaniel Dusk, and Blue Devil.

    I was going to mention these but I didn't because I consider them more as 90's books.

    Top 80's picks for me would be: Batman, Suicide Squad, JLI. Though I was more into Marvel in the 80s.
