People list their favorite issues or their favorite characters, maybe even their favorite creators, but we don't often to get to hear why they're their favorites. Right here, why did you add something to your list of favorites?
To name some of my own:Characters:Jokester
: The first time I saw this character was during Jason Todd and company's trip through the multiverse, Jokester managing to keep them alive for the next jump. But what really clicked for me was just the gall of this character, the outright bravado, and well a touch of the crazy from his more well-known incarnation he displayed in facing off against the entire evil Crime Syndicate. I mean he even, briefly, gave a knock-out (below the belt) punch to Owlman. Instantly fell in love with this character... a shame we didn't see much more of him Obregon Kaine
& Benito Santini
: I'm lumping these two together because they share traits that made them my favorites - they're both resourceful, intelligent, powerful leaders who often lead their teams against vastly more powerful antagonists. Oh and probably more importantly, they're normal non-superpowered characters themselves and their teams both include normal and super-powered beings. When the writing has been right with these two, and from their all too short appearances it always was, they were nothing but a pleasure to see in action.Michonne
: Almost falls into the same category except it's mostly her inner strength rather than leadership qualities which shines my favorite status on her, and that world in which she exists certainly needs a whole lot of inner strength ^.^;;; Boy Blue
: I mostly include this character as a favorite for his vastly interesting adventure through the Fables universe in his quest to restore Pinocchio and destroy the Adversary. He really only had two magical weapons in his possession, the vorpal sword and the witching cloak, but he'd made the most of them and we got to see more depth of his character and those up til that point mostly incidental magical items than anytime previously in that series. That story-arc still remains my favorite of the series thus far.Dr. Dinosaur
: Just a bowl full of crazy that is always an entertaining pleasure to read XDIssues:Bob Burden's Original Mysterymen Comics (1999) #1
: Holy cow, I nearly cried laughing in this issue. There was so much to enjoy but the dialogue was so beautifully and amusingly written, such as the majority of the issue focussing on two characters hunting a monster with the monster coming across as the sympathetic character, them daring each other to put a 'kick me' sign on its back, it being so slow that they end up just sitting around chilling and having normal conversation while waiting for it to catch up, and of course its explosive conclusion
I seriously had hoped to see more of these characters in the series (it instead focussed on new characters every issue) but it gave the feeling of so much happening in that universe, the beginning started off with a gang member they were holding hostage having his head pop off because The Strangler got a little overboard with the interrogation
Just a funny funny issue full of Flaming Carrot type humor.
