Mine would be the comic book adaptation of the PC game Doom.With such lines as "Stupid!Stupid!Stupid Imp!You are stupid!Now you're gonna be stupid and dead!" it's a true wonder why a second issue was never produced.
 
The worst would probably have to be "Batman: The Blue, the Grey, and the Bat". Basically, it's Batman in the old west as a secret agent for the union during the civil war.



Worst. Comic. Ever.
 
I know there are far worst comics out there but the one comic that immediately came to my mind when I read the title to this thread was PAD's first Hulk issue after returning to the character after however many years it has been since he last wrote for the title. There was a lot of hype surrounding his return so I decided to pick up the title. To make a short story even shorter, Hulk spends the majority of the issue fighting a shark under water. Decompression at its worst. There was hardly any dialog (sp?) so it took me like 3 minutes to finish the entire issue. I have never regretted buying a comic as much as I did that day.
 
Now that I think about it, the first issue of Hulk vs Thing by Bruce Jones was equally dissapointing.

That's the kind of comic that you can almost respect for it's dedication to stupidity.Sometimes it's more entertaining when something fails spectacularly than when it succeeds mildly.

And other times it just plain sucks.:o
 
Oh, let me tell you about it. First of all, the reason he dressed like a bat is because one crashed in his window when he received orders from Lincoln to do the spy thing. The didn't have any of his parents dying. Then, he teamed up with his side kick, a native american named Red Bird. Then, they went into town and teamed up with the Dark Knights, former slaves who were now Union soldiers. And the diologue was terrible, and it was horribly sexist towards women, and it just plain sucked ass.
 
Sins Remembered. The only thing that saved it from being torn apart and burned was that it was a library book.
 
I cant remember the really bad ones from my childhood when I was really into comics and collected old and then current ones but the All-Star Batman first 2issues kinda had me looking at it like what the hell especially when I thought it was gonna be good (Miller, Lee)

That's because it was set in a time when women were considered property, so OF COURSE it would be sexist.
 
I have had the good fortune (and good sense) to generally stay away from bad comics; however, as a kid I was more impressionable. So I would probably say that it was one of the first three issues of Venom: Lethal Protector, or maybe the issue of Spidey where for some contrived reason they had Doc Ock rescue Spidey from near-death by the Vulture, and then promptly had Doc Ock murdered by Kaine. Ah, yes, I had the misfortune of once owning and reading a few of those issues, with their clone crap:(

So...pretty much any of the very few 90s comics I read. Except for Age of Apocalypse, which seemed kind of cool, though I also thought that stupid issue where that guy with the world's worst haircut turned everyone to ice or diamond or something, thus starting the Age of Apocalypse, and I thought that issue was pure unadultered crap.

No, it really didn't need to be. I've seen civil war set stories that weren't sexist at all. They just weren't feminist either. The comic I speak of was really bad. As in, the wome's rights group was portrayed as backstabing harpies who for some reason wanted to kill Batman.

Wow,that sounds pretty racist,too.Who the hell wrote that?
 
Not sure. But whoever it was, they suck ass.
 
I don't know. Some times in the 90s.

Huh,.. I actually liked all those things you just mentioned :(

Hmm, bad comic. The comic that comes to mind most is the first issue of Hulk 2099. I bought it because I wanted all those cool covers that the 2099 first issues had, but the story bored me so much that I didn't even desire to get any more of the series. So I guess that'd be mine (though I'm sure I'll think of worse when I'm done typing this)
 
I'll hafta agree on PAD's return to Hulk, but most recently th' All-Star comics. They all suck th' big one. At least Batman made sense, Superman was one big WTF?! moment.

well to be fair I didn't read any of the story before that issue of X-Men, and I DID think the Age of Apocalypse issues I had were cool, but c'mon, liking Venom: Lethal Protector is unforgivable:(

The idea itself is an interesting one. I think it would make a pretty b***hin' comic now if you put it under the MAX label. :o:up:
 
Oh,yeah.An entire mini-series based around the idea of making Aunt May a ****e.Not to mention some of the most perplexing cover choices ever.
