What's your favorite single issue of a comic?

Doesn't have to be a stand alone, but not looking for best arch, or best run, or anything. Just what single issue sticks with you.

Mine would be Watchman #4: Watchmaker. Blew me away the first time I read it, and in subsequent reads still has a huge impact.

A very close second would be Fraction's Hawkeye #11. Pizza Dog is such a good character and what Fraction did without words was incredible.

1. The Spiderman issue where the Green Goblin's identity was revealed

Iím old enough to have bought it from the store when it came out. Unfortunately, my dear departed mother decided it was among the several items that were rotting my brain and therefore trashed it without telling me.

A couple of times over the years I informed her of what a small fortune it would have been worth had I hung onto it.

Oh, well ó she had many good qualities, but appreciation for comic books and science fiction magazines eluded her.

2. The Vision miniseries (2015) AKA The Visions

The final issue had me absolutely blubbing. Print usually doesn't do that.

4. Vintage Superman

Aliens capture Lex Luther, do something alien on his brain, and turn him into a civilized, nice guy. And he falls in love with Lois Lane, who initially rebuffs him as she's still pining for Superman. One day, her car stalls and she gets tired of waiting for Superman to rescue her, so she jumps off a cliff, incurring a severe brain injury. Lex Luther has just invented a device that will save her from death. When Lois wakes, she discovers LL saved her life, not Superman. She immediately marries LL and they start a family. They have a son who grows up to be a Juvenile Delinquent. And of course, the kid wasn't told about LL pre-alien change. He breaks into a locked room and sees all the mayhem his father caused, esp. against Superman. And the kid is so impressed that he wants to continue his father's legacy by attacking Superman.
