  1. What a great list, especially X-men and New Mutants Special Editions and Phoenix the Untold Story.

    And I'm very glad you mentioned Fantastic Four Roast. Along with that there's the Marvel No-Prize Book full of classic mistakes. To my ten-year-old self both these comics were Comedy Gold!

  2. I used to have that Spiderman/Wolverine one shot. that was one of the best Marvel team up stories ever written. it was some really great writing between the interplay of the main characters and the whole "international intrigue" theme of the story line.

  3. Loved that Fantastic Four Roast book. And, yeah, the cold war backdrop to the Spider-Man/Wolverine was great.

  4. I like your lis specially the New Mutants Special edition, i dont know if it is my number one , but it is in the first three places.

  5. FF Roast was a riot.

    Hated hated hated "Spidey meets Wolverine"! Such aggrandizement of Wolverine at Spider-Man's expense. Yuck.
