Top 100 Summer Comics #5

Sometimes the most memorable issues are merely for sentimental value. For example, this issue was the first Silver Surfer comic I purchased, but I would say the most memorable part was my introduction to artist Ron Lim.

#5 – Silver Surfer 19

Ron Lim was in my opinion the Dr. J to Jim Lee’s Michael Jordan – his clean style and sharp angular jaw lines were a real foresight into the style of the ’90s… but Lim was doing it in 1985. No one has ever drawn a better Silver Surfer, and in this issue, a throwdown with Firelord, he puts that on a showcase.

Top 100 Summer Comics… #89

Yesterday I found myself at a local comic convention. It was pretty dang good for what it was.

Lots of long boxes. Great deals on graphic novels. And on a Sunday, people were pricing to move. Score.

But I found myself in a predicament. I had a comic I was buying for $4 but wanted to get it rounded off at the 5 spot. So I decided to unearth an absolute gem that is probably lurking in my mother’s attic. So who do I turn to, in my moment of need?

Jim Starlin, Ron Lim… please come to the rescue.

An absolute incredible work that I NEED to find some commentary by Jim Starlin on. The entire arc (40-43) seems to ooze satire and I’m looking for literary closure. Dynamo City, the tent city, “Their Life”… it’s just awesome. The entire Silver Surfer run by Starlin / Lim run on Silver Surfer (34-50 minus a couple…) is that moment where you go, “THIS. THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE MEANT TO BE DOING.” Thank you. Jim Starlin, please get at me ! ! We need to do an interview. And if you don’t want to, thanks for creating all the same.

Cliche’d but true.

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” 

– Ironic that I would use this to set up a post about Captain America. Why you might ask? 

The adage has no true lineage, though one of those cited to having proliferated this is a famous quote by Napolen Bonaparte who said, “Un bon croquis vaut mieux qu’un long discours”, which translates to “A good sketch is better than a long speech”.  And you know what Cap would say to that…

So, without further adieux, my ten favorite Captain America covers.
