#190 - 1986. Best Year In Comics?

Dan and Marcel have a conversation about the importance of comics in the 80's, specifically around the year 1986. Which comics and creators made history, shifted the landscape of the industry, and are still having an impact on what we read today?

We occasionally refer to an article that sparked this conversation, 1986, The Year That Changed Comics, a very informative and thought-provoking piece.

Review Blast!

Some quick reviews by Rich Urbano...

Clive Barker’s Nightbreed (Boom Studios): Adapted from the cult movie that was  written/directed by Clive Barker, this book gives added background to the monsters of Midian. If you’re a fan of the movie, I highly recommend this comic. The movie serves as an introduction but you never truly get a feel for all the characters involved. The book does this. In addition, the book acts as a sequel to the film that has hinted at but never produced.

Rat Queens (Image Comics): My favorite read of the moment. Humor, debauchery, blood, guts, & mayhem all coming from four little women. Just a fun overall read. I wish i had gotten into Rat Queens from the start, but now that I’m invested I give it my highest recommendation.

Birthright (Image Comics): Another book high on my list right now. Birthright combines elements that remind me of 80’s family and fantasy films like Flight of the Navigator and Legend. Image right now is consistently putting out the best in comics.

New Suicide Squad (DC Comics): Prepare for a whole new book of villains turned government lackey hit squad. If you read the old Suicide Squad books, nothing much has changed. If you’re new to the Suicide Squad, this is good place as any to start and get familiarized with the team. If this book survives DC’s upcoming Convergence story arc, I expect it to gain popularity in anticipation of the upcoming Suicide Squad film.
