"Avengers/JLA" #1 - #4 : For all of Marc Alessi's faults, he loaned out an under-contract George Perez to draw this one. Thanks, Marc. The crossover turned out to be everything I was looking for: an excuse to switch up characters and locations across universes, include some silly fight scenes, and tie it all together with a plot device that facilitates the whole shebang.

(excerpt)


"The Infinity Gauntlet" #1 - #6, "The Infinity War" #1 - #6. I didn't include the third mini-series, because I thought the idea had played itself out by then and I wasn't all that interested in it. But those first two mini-series are still the standard by which many cosmic storylines are judged today, placing the heroes of the Marvel Universe against the likes of Thanos and Death, or their own evil duplicates. George Perez started the initial mini-series, before being dragged away for DC's "War of the Gods" event, a move that would be judged in the future as "silly." But Lim shone, drawing dozens of characters per page, with epic storytelling.
