Justice League of America #224 was one of the first comics Kurt Busiek ever wrote - he was 23 at the time - and it's a great little done-in-one. The villain has a cool power, and the Justice League comes across as smart and strategic.

Plus, that cover has Red Tornado's dismembered torso.

In the interest of spreading the good word of good comics, and encouraging value, I feel like I should give a mention to Comixology's Top shelf sale. It's got a tonne of books, like
Underwater Daddy Issues by Jeff Lemire, the early work that informed his Daddy Issues with Arrows and Daddy Issues with Antlers. It's a good little Twilight Zone-esque tale.
Jess Fink's Chester 5000, an erotic tale about threesomes, moresomes, bionic arms, bisexual men and building a robot that your wife wants to fuck. Her semi autobiographical time travelling tale is also in the sale.
Colleen Coover's
Gingerbread Girl, which is adorable, because it's Colleen Coover. Did Annah invent an imaginary sister named Ginger during her parents' ferocious divorce, or did her mad scientist father extract part of her brain and transform it into a living twin?
Kagan McLeod's Infinite Kung Fu is 459 pages of top quality 70s style Kung Fu action, but on a comics book's massive special effects budget.
Strong Female Protagonist is a collection of the webcomic of the same name by Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag. A physical book was kickstarted and released last year, which is how I found it.

The best thing is, all of these items from comixology DRM free backups included, so you can download a pdf version and read it on your kindle, if you feel that way inclinced. That's how I was able to get such high quality images for previews like these.

We can fix it )
