Now, I don't mean that the duo gets back together now to try and recreate the magic.

What book/series/character/era do you wish you could have just a bit more from?

Take the Dark Phoenix Saga; John Byrne was gone after that; just imagine what another year of Claremont and Byrne could have been like?

How about more Priest Black Panther with Sal Velluto? (ok my fave here)

Micheline/Bright/Layton Iron Man?

PAD/Dale Keown Hulk?

George Perez/Perez Wonder Woman?

Waid/Ringo Flash?
 etc et cetera

For me, I dearly wish for the PAD/ChrisCross era of Captain Marvel (2000). Genis Vell, and his title, still remain as one of my all time favorite highlights of mixed comedy, action, snark, drama, and loss. I love this title to death. Rereading it right now.

The title didn't have great sales, came under fire when Bill Jemas said he could write better, PAD promoted the hell out of it, even had artists like Carlos Pacheco (non inking years though Sad ), Ivan Reis, and Aaron Lopresti on the title.

If I could somehow just have a time machine of that era of PAD/ChrisCross tell me another year or two...I'd be in heaven.

Is there any team/book creator team you would have just loved see do some more magic for you?

Easy answer for me as it is (perhaps) the ONLY reason I am back to reading comics today. Who knows, I may have walked back into the LCS in another 5 years and something else grabbed my attention, but this is the comic and the team that returned my eyes to comics after all that 90's crap.

I wish that Bedard and Pelletier would come back for Negation.

Mine would be Wolfman Perez Titans.  I was already reading Flash but this is what hooked me into comics.

Way too many great runs out there that i would loved to have seen extended

I would agree wholeheartedly with CapMarvel....great series.

For me and should it be obvious...i would have loved more Doug Moench/Bill Sienkiewicz MoonKnight.  That was the team (Pre MK#1 backups from Rampaging Hulk Magazine) that really got me actively collecting and searching out specific characters/creators

2nd would be Peter Gillis/Brent Anderson's Strikeforce: Moritori...it was such a departure from what was being presented and had a great twist for the consequences of power.

"Bohica..."

Man, I loved those 9 issues. Utterly to death. I wish that story could have had some kind of finish on it's own.

The pair have been united on the Hulk title, and Aquaman, but nothing came close to Bedard/Pelletier on Negation.

You know, I can remember you raving about this title, ptsteelers?

In fact, you are the reason I picked it up at issue 5. I went back and bought them all (except #2; that was gone or sold out at my LCS), and I never regretted it. Smiley

This is continually on my trade buying wish list. I just haven't pulled the trigger for fear of not loving it enough because of it being dated and me being so much older now.

But....I think I still may get there at some point...

I have that MK in the Marvel Essentials..and if anything, I think it may honestly be better in the black and white on the newsprint paper to totally get all of Sienkiewicz' art. This is stuff that really holds up.

Let me ease your fears and say yes, it is dated.  Grin

However, I still enjoy it in the same way I can enjoy those pretty badly written Legion of Super-Heroes comics that I am such a fan of  Grin
