Comic Pros reveal the books that shaped them.
If there's one writer in comicdom who can't be pinned down, it's Joe Casey. With stins on mainstream books like Uncanny X-Men,
you'd think Casey would be happy at the Bit Two. But the scribe has an
edgy side as well, as shown in his groundbreaking work on WildC.A.T.s and Automatic Kafka. In addition to launching WildStorm's latest superteen team, The Intimates, Casey's also taking a crack at the Avengers with Marvel's Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Check out the issue that shaped him!
AVENGERS #161 "Beware the Ant-Man!" by Jim Shooter and George
Pérez. "MY favorite single issue from when I was a kid. And it still
holds up tfor me today. A great story that gave you a sense of the
history of the Avengers, but was still modern in its execution.
Fantastic characterization, and their greatest nemesis, Ultron, in one
of his coolest appearance. NM Value: $9
AVENGERS #181 "On the Matter of heroes" by David Michelinie and
John Byrne. "Michelinie is such an underrated writer and this issue,
where NSC Agent Henry Gyrich actually dictates teh Avengers' membership,
is my favorite from his run. I loved how Pérez did a cover that was
exactly like the Bryne splash inside. Or was it the other way around?"

Greg Horn Part 2
George is one of the artists who really impressed me when I was just learning to draw. He and John Byrne
were the guys who laid a solid foundation for me as a comic artist and I
owe them a debt of gratitude. My favorite Perez issues are Avengers
160 - 162. A great story with revelations about Wonderman's past and
then an awesome battle with Ultron where he tries to transfer the Wasp's
brain into Jocosta's body!
