Kazu Kibuishi

Flight (Vols. 1-3)

Kazu Kibuishi (ed.)

Herobear and the Kid: The Inheritance

Batman: Haunted Knight

DC: The New Frontier (Vols. 1 and 2)

Darwin Cooke

Identity Crisis

Brad Meltzer and Rags Morales

Superman for All Seasons

Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale

Superman: Godfall

Michael Turner, Joe Kelly and Talent Caldwell

Honestly, there’s a good chunk that’s forgettable (and how!), but by and large I enjoyed most of the stuff on the list (I’d better – they cost a pretty penny!). I would like to think that I’ve already gotten this out of my system, though 2007 is looking to be an interesting year for comics as I type this…
