100 All-Time Greatest Comics… Improved: Part XIX

Yes, yes, I know it’s been a while, but real life intervened, alright?

The New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract

The original “100 All-Time” suggested the NTT Omnibus Volume 3, which is just silly if you ask me.

The Wolfman/Peréz run on Teen Titans is the best the team has ever had (subsequent writers usually descend to mere pastiche of their work, or simply offing less well-known team members like so much wheat to the chaff, and don’t get me started on DC’s insistence on making Deathstroke one of their biggest Mary Sues…) and even then I’m hesitant to say it’s one of the greatest comics DC has ever done. Besides, suggesting a story arc from four years into the series? Now, what is one of the best DC Comics titles?

Enemy Ace Archives: Volume 1

Yes, this was the best quality scan I could find.

Okay, now we’re talking. You want moral ambiguity? You want a protagonist with depth? You want a subversion of an entire genre? You want pulse-pounding action drawn by one of, if not the greatest artists comic books has ever known, or will ever know? You want stories that not only stir your soul, but make you think, I mean really think? You want something so quite unlike anything you’ve ever read, from a publisher that at the time had gained a reputation for being staid and trying a little too hard to be “hip with the kids”?

Then you need to read Enemy Ace.
