Comic books are underrated, but are also great wellsprings of creativity and passion. Over the years, there have been quite a huge number of comic books that have really made their mark in the industry (the same way that Amsterdam City trip has made its mark in your heart).
These massive, overarching comics stories offer something that cannot be found in any other medium. They rely on a small number of creatives that spend entire years crafting a story (or stories), and – more often than not – that effort pushes those words, panels and pictures into the pantheon of legendary tales. So, instead of checking online shops like Lazada and Zalora, check out these great comic runs.
Some Great Comic Runs of All Time
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Here’s one. The black and white independent comic boom of the 1980s is epitomized by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and while they weren’t the first, they certainly were the best. Since its original roots, the comic has morphed into a juggernaut franchise, with efforts both animated and otherwise captivating audiences on the big and small screens. Despite having a thirty-year history to boast, the TMNT’s best stories come from the earliest days of their comic.
Amazing Spider Man: This is probably something that should be on this list. This run encapsulates everything that is at the core of Spider-Man’s essence – his growth from an awkward teenager into a hero is all on display. The progression that follows Peter’s life feels natural and his ever increasing struggles are earned. This often comes in tandem with juggling his personal life along with battling nearly his entire rogues gallery of villains, all of which come to prominence during the first few years of Lee and Ditko’s run.
Sandman: Neil Gaiman is probably best known for this work. Generally considered to be the best comic book ever put out under the Vertigo imprint, Sandman incorporates elements of mythology, legend, and horror to create a unique story. Following Morpheus, the personification of dreams, Sandman spans not only the DC Universe, but other realms and concepts never before seen in the medium.
