Hey folks, today we're asking what your favorite event is.

52 was really something special, in both form and content. A year-long weekly set in real-time, it pulled the spotlight off the big stars of the DCU and gave a few underdogs their chances to shine. It made Booster Gold a big deal again, introduced Batwoman to the world, and, perhaps most importantly, told the story of how the no-face was handed off from Vic Sage to Renee Montoya. There's story fodder here that's still being explored today, while others that unfortunately haven't gotten a proper look yet (dc where are my ghost detective dibnys they need to have their own book).

And beyond the compelling story, the process of how the various story beats were juggled between the four writers, Greg Rucka, Grant Morrison, Mark Waid and Geoff Johns, is pretty fascinating on its own. The commentary in the trade collections is invaluable stuff. The art could be a little iffy at times and uses guys like Joe Bennett and Eddie Barrows a little more often than I would've liked, but every now and then you get someone like Chris Batista, Drew Johnson or Darick Robertson, and the whole thing becomes a little more worth it. And the covers by J.G. Jones are gorgeously designed and rendered!

So how about you, what comics event really got your attention?

Inferno gave me nightmares the first time I read it. That bit with the elevator, huagh.
