*** Scrooge stars in some of the best Disney comics ever, yet I always thought of his nephew, DonaldDuck, as leading some of the best Disney stories in all of its history. CarlBarks' works with the character are a must, sure, but what about the thousands of stories starring Donny all over the world, since the 30's? Don't get me started.

* {{Deadpool}} is an awesome character. And ''Cable and Deadpool'' is awesome, light-hearted fun. And contains some of the most hilarious HoYay ever.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Tom Strong}}'' deserves a mention of its own. The sheer number of styles the book covered over its run was staggering, and each one was both well done and recognizably comic-booky, for want of a better term. If a person didn't know better, it could be mistaken for a selected sampling of a book that started in the 30s, and just kept going, unimpeded by dork ages or retcons, updating with the times while maintaining a consistent vision, for over 70 years. Err... yeah, [[AndThatLittleGirlWasMe I made that mistake]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Justice League Adventures comics. Ranging from sitcom-style character antics to clever plots that could have been ripped straight from a "best-of" of the silver age (not the superdickery), to light philosophy, the Adventures comics were definitely aimed at kids, but respected their intelligence. That, and the ambiguously happy ending of "Alien Like Me" still haunts this troper to this day.
** Also the Batman Adventures. And the Superman Adventures. Clever plots, a solid handle on the characters involved, and occasionally some light philosophy.

Added DiffLines:

** just to give a few examples of her accomplishments: a legitimately heartwarming series about insane murderers (Secret Six), a serious look at the nature of legacy that still had time for chronologically displaced heads, B-movie cancer-god worshiping puritans, and kaiju-breeding (The All-New Atom), a "ParentsAsPeople" deconstruction of superheroes (Welcome to Tranquility), and however it is that you describe Birds of Prey.


Added DiffLines:

** Jaime Reyes' story was human, just a bit strange, and very, very tropey, in the best ways possible.

Added DiffLines:

* Warren Ellis's 6 issues of Moon Knight are also amazing. Just the synopsis of issue 3 is enough- "In this issue: Moon Knight punches ghosts."

* Creator/ChrisClaremont's first run on ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, especially when paired with Alan Davis, John Byrne, or Dave Cockrum. The imagination and resonance in those stories still persists to this day.

* ''Comicbook/{{Exiles}}'' - [[XMeetsY X-Men meets Sliders]] for all kinds of awesome. The fact that most of the action takes place in alternate universes without heavy continuity means that the writers could have some CrazyAwesome ideas for stories. Like what if [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]], [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Bolivar Trask]], [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Hank Pym]] and [[SpiderMan Curt Conners]] decided to fight {{Kaiju}} with TransformingMecha? Or if a bunch of C-list alternate universe heroes decided to fight an evil Superman expy for the fate of the universe? That and it didn't cheapen the deaths of well-developed characters by bringing them back. And Blink is just awesome.

* ComicBook/ScudTheDisposableAssassin is the most clever, weirdest, wackiest, and greatest comic i've ever read in my life. All 24 issues are great. The art is so complex and extremly pleasing to look at, the story, while weird, is brilliantly told. It's also extremly funny andvthe cast of characters are all great. And the ending, oh my god the ending, it's so heartwarming and wraps everythong up so nicely. Absolutly give this series a try, it's worth it.

** The Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} series each had enough win and heartwarming to make Gotham seem like a nice place. The epicness of the Cain series was described well enough above, so the Stephanie Brown, LighterAndSofter series will be gushed about here. With a barely used protagonist best known for her humiliatingly bad death story, and a virtually unknown writer and wildly changing art team, it became the happiest, funniest and most beautiful Batbook. Special mention must go to the guest star issues, which showed the contrast between characters while giving them realistic and hilarious relationship dynamics, expanding on the core of each character. Oh, and she slapped the [[CrowningMomentofAwesome Goddamn Batman]]

* ComicBook/AchilleTalon: Sadly sometimes lost in translation, but in the original French at least, some of the funniest lines of dialogue ''ever'' '''''written'''''. The colorful cast is also very original, and it also has AwesomeArt with many background details that are often jokes in and on themselves, and hilarious, Chuck Jones-esque expressions on the characters' faces.
