Demon Knights and Supergirl are my biggest piles yet to be claimed. The former in particular surprises me. Paul Cornell! Vandal Savage! Questing for the right for princesses to marry each other!
So the first on this list is technically DC, but it’s not DCU and that’s how I roll:
Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre: Written by Darwyn Cooke, drawn by the amazing Amanda Conner. An origin story for Laurie Jupiter, about growing up with an ex-superhero for a Mom and breaking out on your own. Obviously relevant to me, as a Black Canary fan. [Deuce]
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the end of Season 8, the beginning of Season 9. Also Angel and Faith, which is a season 9 spin off.
Cinderella: Fables are Forever A Fables-universe spy story starring Cinderella and… well, that would be a spoiler.
The Guild – One shot ‘origins’ for the characters of Felicia Day’s web series.
House of Mystery – the last few arcs of Matt Sturges’ fantasy romp. Lots of fun, and definitely a title I miss.
Stumptown: The Case of the Baby in the Velvet Case – The second arc of Greg Rucka’s PI series, so-starring Mim Bracca from Fistful of Rain. Actually, what the hell, I’ll throw in Fistful of Rain in paperback if you want. This is an amazing four-issue story, and contains the best car chase sequence in comics that I’ve ever seen.
Saucer Country: Paul Cornell’s 14 issue story about an alien abductee (also an hispanic woman) running for president. Conspiracies! Aliens! Politics! This is also great.
