Ever wish we had a "Naughty Nineties" Message Board?

I know we can talk about 90s Marvel at this board, and 90s DC at the DC board, and 90s Independents at the Independents board... but somehow I think 90s fans are a special breed, and if given a chance, would form the kind of community that has developed over at the Gold-Silver-Bronze Age board.

Has anyone here bought 90s Marvel back issues in the recent past?

Today I bought the complete run (ten issues) of Blackwulf. I had always been intrigued by that book, yet had never acted on my curiosity till today. I got all ten from Mile High Comics via ebay for $18.99 (which included shipping). I was pleasantly surprised, as I generally find Mile High's prices to be... well, mile high. This transaction was reasonable, and especially so, since I got all ten at one shot, and all were at least Fine.

What was your favorite 90s Marvel book? I'll go with Force Works. I don't know what it was with that book, but it had me from the first page and never let go of me. Oh, and of course, it featured Moonraker.




Blackwulf was an excellent title in the '90s and I still can't believe that he has not been brought back.

Darkhawk was the book that got me back into collecting comics (I was 14 when I started again after about a 4 year hiatus). Not exactly happy with the way he was treated in Avengers Arena, but it is what it is.

Force Works was good (especially the character Moonraker/Libra), but I still missed the fun that Avengers West Coast brought.

Ghost Rider & the Midnight Sons (dumb name) books were a good concept, but I thought that some of the stories focused less on character development and more on cool artwork, which eventually led to their demise. I remember when I would pick up my comics, it always seemed like those ones took about 2 minutes to read.

Ka-Zar was underrated early on, but then tailed off quickly.

MORT the Dead Teenager is another title that should be brought back, especially in light of all the teenage angst mixed with the zombie/supernatural kick currently going on. I teach kids 14-18 and I believe that if it was marketed properly, could easily be a top seller within 6 months with that particular age group.
