Brian Michael Bendis’ Stuck at Home Comic Book Reading List

Note from IGN Senior Editor Joshua Yehl: If you’ve suddenly found yourself with a lot of extra time on your hands that you don’t know what to do with, then worry not, because IGN is teaming up with some of our favorite comic book creators to help you out with a list of recommended reads. To kick things off, our first special guest is acclaimed comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis. Even if you haven’t read Ultimate Spider-Man, Powers, or his game-changing Avengers saga, you’ve probably seen his work reflected on screen, given he’s the co-creator of breakout characters Jessica Jones and Spider-Man Miles Morales. Having left Marvel Comics for DC Comics in 2017, Bendis now writes titles like Superman, Young Justice, and Legion of Superheroes, plus he’s spearheading a new imprint called Wonder Comics. He’s a five-time Eisner-award winner and has taught a college course on comics. Suffice to say, he knows a thing or two about good comics, so here’s what he thinks you ought to sink your eyeballs into. Comic books were, sort of, born out of a traumatized war-torn world. They have always been truthful escapist places in real times of stress. We’ve all experienced that magic on some level. A place where a kid or adult can bury their face in a new comic and just feel… different. In one of my all-time favorite (not comic) books High Fidelity by Nick Hornsby, the ultimate music fan is offered the opportunity to make his absolute Top Five List. It’s my favorite part of the book, and movie, watching the character start to unravel under the weight of the request. “Top five WHAT? Top five of all time? Top five songs you listen to in the desert?” That is how I felt when IGN approached me to put this list together. I have 443,221 comics on my best comics of all time list. But I broke it down fast. This list is different from what would be my ultimate ultimate ultimate list. This is specifically things that I think would be healing, fun, inspiring, smart escapism in this weird world we find ourselves in. These books are teleportation vehicles — not only to another world with different rules and experiences for us but an important statement about how amazing comics can be.
