Venom and For All Seasons are some of the best stories ever for their prospective characters. Obviously Kingdom Come is Incredible as well. Man, I gotta read Venom again. That brings me back. I remember being a snot nosed little kid, buying those from the old used book/comic shop/porno store that was about a half mile walk from my house. Those were the days. Looking back, I can't believe how lucky I was to have a store that sold comics a mere 3 minute bike ride from my house. Now I have to drive at least 45 minutes to get comics. Comic shops were everywhere back in the late 80's-early 90's. Speaking of that old shop, the first comic I ever bought was there. I think I was like 5, and the first comic I got was Miracleman #9, of all issues. Which happened to have an incredibly realistic and very graphic child birthing scene. Lets just say that confused and horrified the crap out of me. My mom was pretty much dumbstruck when I asked her about it. Looking back, I'm pretty lucky I was allowed to keep getting them after that bombshell. Okay, done reminiscing. It's amazing how just recalling a random story of some random comics can bring back so many memories.
