What have I done to you? Have I wronged you? It must have been grievous to warrant such a post as this.

How is “story” defined ? A discreet block? an Issue? an arc? just whatever you can slice out?

tempest fugit: great hulk, just before it all went wrong/red?!

This will take some thought. And a lot of time at his bibliography.

There’s a bibliography?

I forgot some of his stuff!
Young Justice, Fallen Angel, Supergirl!
How is half of this not reprinted (particularly YJ which with the cartoon, fingers crossed!)

On his website, Mike: http://www.peterdavid.net/index.php/bibliography/

It covers every damn thing he’s done, but the comics are all grouped together.

I like the one with the puns the best.

How is “story” defined ? A discreet block? an Issue? an arc? just whatever you can slice out?

Yeah, basically how you slice it out – it can be a one-shot, a one-off issue, an annual or a story arc.

Check the rules if you’re unclear, though – I think it’s spelled out decently well there (but if you have more questions, feel free to keep asking!).

So many to choose, but lets forget comic books for a moment and look at his novels. I think star trek: New Frontier was possibly the greatest Star Trek novel series ever done. Treason had the most epic and beautiful death I’ve read about in years in any medium.

Brain…I got to this thread by way of PAD’s blog…hadn’t seen you did an intro article before posting..sorry :*)

Incredible Hulk #380: “Crazy Eight” with the late Bill Jaaska on guitar.

>>It covers every damn thing he’s done, but the comics are all grouped together.

I’m the one that compiles that bibliography. There is also a spreadsheet linked at the top of the bibliography that lists PAD’s individual comic issues and their story titles:


(although I haven’t updated the spreadsheet in almost a year. I’ll put that on my to-do list.)

And there’s a page of all of PAD comic TPB collections:


Hopefully those two resources will help jog people’s memories of PAD’s best issues and arcs.


That was indeed helpful, Corey, and informative. I, for one, did not realize that was Nicola Scott on the Illyria one-shot (which, while it didn’t make my list, is still a darn good comic).

I’m going to have to think this over before I make my choices. I was going to take this opportunity to tell everyone about his great blog, but I see others have already mentioned it.

i’m sure most people won’t – but don’t forget Future Imperfect and even Hulk The End – both great

1. Hulk: Future Imperfect
2. X-Factor #87, Vol 1
3. Incredible Hulk #377, Vol 1
4. Incredible Hulk #467, Vol 1
5. Marc Hazzard: Merc #s1-4
6. Aquaman #0, Vol 3
7. Incredible Hulk #388, Vol 1
8. Incredible Hulk # 420, Vol 1
9. Incredible Hulk # 340
10. The Death of Jean DeWolffe

The first arc on Hulk with Mcfarlane (from when he started to that last issue where everyone thinks Hulk is dead)

I voted.

(And completely forgot to include the first few issues of Spider-Man 2099, which should have been in the top five on my list. Oh well – hopefully enough other people will remember put Spidey 2099 on their ballot!)

Thanks for the link to that spreadsheet, Corey. That is awesome. Too bad there isn’t a similar tool for each of the threads…
