    I thought the Drax mini was pretty good. It was sort of a prequel to the whole event. Unless I'm thinking of something else.

    I agree on the other two though.

    Like I would say Ultimate Death of Spider-Man counts as an event



    although by that logic I guess the Death of Captain America also counts and should probably be on my list.


    hrmmmm

    I would consider a comic event to be a massively hyped status quo changing story


    and under that definition, Planet Hulk qualifies.

    One Year Later wasn't an event and had some really good stories

    Disagree!

    A modern event is built around crossing over multiple characters into one singular storyline, usually via a main miniseries and several tie-ins.

    Planet Hulk was really really great but if it is an event then the Stark Resilient arc of Invincible Iron Man is an event or Brubaker and Fraction's Iron Fist.

    One Year Later was so massively mishandled


    there were so many great ideas and then they did nothing with them. Like, the idea that Harvey Dent had become the protector of Gotham while Batman was gone and then he becomes Two-Face again like 2 fucking issues into OYL. Come the fuck on.

    And that abortion of a Flash relaunch, which was so bad that it had to be immediatley rebooted again and then that reboot was still bad.

    OYL is basically the reason I stopped reading 80% of DC's line


    and then Countdown and RIP killed my interest in the other 20%

    Penguin and Huntress are getting minis in October, by Hurwitz and Levitz respectively.

    I'm happy to see them fleshing out the 52 ongoings with minis for characters that couldn't really support an ongoing.

    Also, I'm probably the only person that liked the number of the beast and worlds end wildstorm crossover events that that shut down that whole universe. Shame, there were some good-ass books there down the years

    the early Cassandra Cain, when she was only able to express herself through fists into faces and her book was this awesome mix of action and trying to make sense of her new life, were ridiculously good. She was basically the very essence of batman in girl form, no silly stories, just ass kicking. Then writers decided to make her story dumb and overly complicated And give her the usual comictard bloat and that's that

    yeah, what they did with Cassandra was super dumb, but otherwise I really liked that Robin story

    Plus OYL brought us Blue Beetle

    Well I have not read 1985 so I cannot comment on whether it is a valid choice for the number 1 spot

    I still find it very hard to believe it is good

    Fool me once, as they say.

    As for Cass I can't put my finger on it but something about her irritates me

    I can explain why people liked Cassie and why they stopped liking her.

    She was a hot girl, could fight like batman and DID NOT TALK.

    Then she started talking.

    I'm not saying thats my opinion...I still like her dispite the crap they did with her. But its probably pretty close to the truth.

    But she talked with her fists

    Also, batgirl, robin, and detective were my fave books for years, so yeah

    Also that's like saying all robin fans are pedos

    Are they?

    I think that the fact that some people positively rave over her is part of the reason I don't like her

    I'll admit that
