Marvel Must-Have. Miles Morales: Spider-Man. Origin
- Format: Hardcover Volume Cardboard. 136 pp. Colour.
- Price: 15 euros
We start with the most fashionable superhero in the video game world. In 2000, Marvel was betting on narrating a new genesis for its most famous characters, making the decision to place said reboot in a new reality outside of the official 616 continuity, the Ultimate universe. Miles Morales was in charge of taking over from Peter Parker from the Ultimate universe when he surprisingly passed away. The screenwriter Brian Michael Bendis, before becoming the main architect of Modern Marvel, presented us with a new wall-crawler whose origins had several parallels with the one we knew but at the same time it was a proposal more in line with modern times, fresh and knowing how to connect great with the new generation of comic book readers. Accompanying the pencils was a colossal Sara Picheli, who did an incredible job that placed her as one of the best modern Spiderman cartoonists. This volume compiles the first 5 issues of the regular series where Miles and his beginnings as the new Spiderman were presented, in a luxurious hardcover volume with magnificent finishes. Ideal whether we want to read a magnificent comic as a complement to one of the best video games of the first batch of Playstation 5.
Marvel Must-Have. Ms. Marvel: Out of the ordinary
- Format: Hardcover Volume Cardboard. 128 pp. Colour
- Price: 12.99 euros
We continue with another character who is currently furious in the video game sector, for having a leading role in the recent Square Enyx title of The Avengers. This new Ms Marvel was born out of Marvel’s desire to diversify its characters and try to make them connect with the new generation. Kamala Khan is a young Pakistani woman of Muslim religion, with whose problems and day to day teenagers of today can identify. After being exposed to the terrifying mists, her inhuman origins are revealed and her superpowers are activated. As a fan of Captain Marvel, she decides to inherit the title of Ms Marvel as her new superhero identity. Despite her new life, she is still a teenager from New Jersey with the problems and chores of any similar girl. This duality managed to bring her closer to Marvel’s new young readership with great success, until she became one of the company’s new modern icons. A multitude of projects are being prepared with the charismatic Kamala as the protagonist, and what better way to get to know her than this fantastic volume where the first 5 issues of her regular series are compiled with the presentation arc of a character who is currently furious. Ideal for young readers, but will appeal to all audiences.
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (DC Black Label Pocket)
- I take a rustic softcover. 208 pages. 14.6×22.5. Colour.
- Price: 9.95 euros
In a wonderful initiative to bring the world of comics to the widest possible audience, the good folks at ecc have launched this DC Black Label softcover pocket line, which brings together those most mature and essential classics within the editorial. For 9.95 euros you have several cult comics both recent and older. Mind you, because it is a limited edition. Batman has almost completely taken over the beginning of the collection, with 5 comics: Batman: Year One, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Cursed Knight, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Batman: White Knight. All of them masterpieces that for that price are the perfect gift for this Christmas. It is true that there are better options in other formats of these comics for the most elite collector, given the somewhat reduced dimensions and the quality of the paper of this Pocket line. But for that tight price you can’t ask for more, and we repeat, we are in front of masterpieces of the ninth art. We have highlighted the Return of the Dark Knight as we could have chosen any of the other 4. In 1986, screenwriter Frank Miller definitively established himself with a comic that would set the course to follow and would be one of the most influential in history. After 10 years retired, the crusader in the cape must put the suit back on once more to deliver justice in a Gotham that goes straight to hell, in a violent, raw and very mature story. A timeless classic.
Joker (DC Black Label Pocket)
- Format: Rustic softcover volume. 128 pages. Colour. 14.6×22.5.
- Price: 9.95 euros
Continuing DC’s budget line, we went from the pointy-eared hero to his most famous arch nemesis. This Joker is more of a good crime novel than a regular superhero comic. And despite the fact that the protagonist is the madman who gives it its title, the plot will be told from the perspective of a third-rate thug from the Joker’s gang. He has just emerged from his confinement in the Arkham Asylum, and totally out of control and out of control, unleashes a wave of violence and destruction to regain the throne of Gotham that was taken from him while he was deprived of freedom. This comic was published at the end of 2008, the capital interpretation of the villain offered by Heath Ledger being very recent, so here we find a darker, more mature and realistic Joker similar to that and different from the successful version of Joakim Phoenix that we have most recent. Screenwriter Brian Azzarello offers us a raw and hard plot full of excesses, and Lee Bermejo shows why he is one of the most talented artists on the current comic scene with his hyper-realistic and recharged style that is truly amazing. This duo offered us other capital works such as Batman: Condemned and Luthor, and the truth is that this reinterpretation of the most deranged villain has enchanted us.
- Format: I take hard covers Cardboard with dust covers. 298 pp. Black and white
- Price: 21.90 euros
When you visit the usual lists of the best comics in history, you almost always come across Maus at the top of those lists. Not in vain we are talking about the only comic that has been awarded a Pulitzer Prize. Maus tells of one of the greatest atrocities committed by humanity in its history, the Nazi death camps, but he does so from a very original and different perspective than usual. Cartoonist Art Spiegelman tells the true story of his parents in these camps, but using the metaphor of turning Germans into cats and Jews into mice. Despite this, this stark story is a true representation of the unspeakable horrors lived there, told first-hand by the artist’s father, whose complex relationship with him will also occupy a small part of the story. It is incredible the amount of sensations that Maus awakens in the reader, from absolute despair to hope when everything seemed lost, from how low the human race can fall to the incredible goodness that it can hold in its heart. A masterful comic that uses innovative methods to portray a terrible horror, being one of those works that leaves a real impression on the reader.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Original Series Vol. 01 of 6
- Format: Volume hard covers Hardcover 328 pages. BN.
- Price: 34 euros.
One of the great hits of the year and enormous joy for comic readers in Spain has been the decision of the ecc publishing house to reissue the classic material of the Ninja Turtles in our country. For happiness to be complete, we have double turtles. First we have this hardcover volume that compiles the original stage created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, released in 1984 in a practically underground way. And be careful, because these origins show us a very crude, violent and dark comic, far from the sweetened image left us by the popular 1987 television series of cartoons that catapulted Chelonians to absolute stardom. With pages totally in black and white, we find a hilarious comic, where it is very noticeable that it is the work of two young people wanting to have a great time and bombard us with stimuli from all sides, while enjoying a dense narrative of their own of the time. The comic is also full of references to popular culture of the time. This volume is the first of 6 that are scheduled to reissue the original stage of the turtles. A work that is very much enjoyed and highly recommended. And be careful, because despite having come out this December, they are flying and a reprint is already scheduled. It is seen that there was a desire for Ninja Turtles.
Ninja Turtles vol. 01
- Format: volume in softcover Rustic. 208 pp. Colour.
- Price: 20.50 euros
We continue with Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo. In this case, ecc publishes the successful reboot of the turtles published by the IDW publishing house in 2011 in a soft cover volume. We are facing a magnificent reboot that, unlike the origins volume, does show us an image of the heroes more in the line of the most well-known aspect of them. The work done in this series is magnificent, how could it be less having one of the original creators, Kevin Eastman, handling both the scripts and the pencils. In this series the beginning of the characters is narrated, with similarities with the original but introducing some changes and new nuances. We are facing a very fresh and fun series, with a lot of rhythm and really interesting, which managed to capture the attention of readers and critics again on these characters. If the volume of the original series is more suitable for veteran readers, this is perfect for both young and old. This volume compiles the first 6 issues plus two specials of this great stage, and the following will be released on a quarterly basis. There was never a better time to join the Tortugomania.
Marvel Must-Have. The Infinity Gauntlet
- Format: I take hardcover Cartoné. 208 pp. Colour.
- Price: 15 euros
We are facing one of the most iconic and representative works in the long history of La Casa de las Ideas. And one of the great influences for one of the greatest cinematographic phenomena of our time, despite the fact that the story told here is very different from the one starred in theaters by Iron Man and company. It turns out to be as or even more epic than that. In an incomparable cosmic epic, we have the most insane Marvel villain taking to the last the most Machiavellian of plans: looking for 6 gems that give their bearer absolute power and with them exterminate half the life of the universe, to try to impress his beloved, Death herself. Faced with such insanity, a multitude of Marvel’s bravest and most powerful heroes will unite in a contest of scale the likes of which has never been seen before. The Infinity Gauntlet was the masterpiece of the father of the original Cosmic Marvel, a Jim Starlin who here offers us one of those essential comics that leave the reader breathless, in an epic and desperate fight of good against evil on a cosmic scale. The good folks at Panini Cómics offer us the 6 issues of this galactic epic gathered in a fantastic hardcover volume and quality paper, in a perfect comic to give away this Christmas.
Marvel Must-Have. Wolverine: Old Man Logan
- Format: I take hard covers Cartoné. 208 pp. Colour.
- Price: 15 euros.
Old Man Logan is one of modern Marvel’s biggest hits. Halfway between the road movie and the western, this mature and visceral story set in a post-apocalyptic future a la Mad Max is an inescapable recommendation. In the not too distant future, we find ourselves in a world where almost all heroes have perished at the hands of villains. The once tireless and fearsome warrior known as Wolverine is now a family man who denies that name. Logan is a very different man, downcast and defeated by circumstances. Away from the superhero life, he must embark one last time on a dangerous journey to help an old companion. Screenwriter Mark Millar is a true expert when it comes to offering us the best blockbusters in the form of comics (Civil War, The Ultimates among many others), and with Old Man Logan he took this premise to a higher plane. He is accompanied by Steve Mcniven, who does an enormous job with his drawings, and does not cut a hair when it comes to showing us very shocking and brutal images. As in all Marvel Must Have, we have a quality hardcover volume with the full story, belonging to the numbers Wolverine 66-72 and Old Man Logan Giant size. A modern must-have.
Superman: Red Son (DC Black Label Pocket)
- Format: I take paperback Rustic. 160 pp. Colour. 14.6×22.5.
- Price: 9.95 euros
A few years before offering us the Logan epic that we recommended to you earlier, the exceptional Scottish screenwriter Mark Millar pulled this alternative version of Superman out of his sleeve. Published within DC’s Other Worlds line, where stories outside of official continuity were told in alternate realities, this 2003 gem is one of the best comics of the modern era. The starting premise could not be more intriguing: What would have happened if a certain rocket launched from a dying alien planet where the last baby of that world is traveling had crashed in the middle of the Soviet Union instead of on a farm in Smallville, Kansas? In a magnificent story, we see Superman as one more cog in the Russian Regime, and many other DC characters in surprising alternate versions due to the Kryptonian rocket crashing in a different place this time. All this to show us that we are nothing more than the sum of our circumstances, leave us with a multitude of shocking moments that we never imagined seeing, and a tremendous ending of those that leave you spinning in your head. A true jewel of the ninth art at a price of laughter.
- Format: Volume hard covers Cardboard (216×276 mm) 208 pages. Colour.
- Price: 24.50 euros
Harleen was one of the most awarded and applauded comics of 2019, and recently ecc editions has published this superb comprehensive edition that collects the 3 issues in a fantastic hardcover volume and dimensions somewhat larger than usual to be able to enjoy his excellent art as it deserves. Croatian Stjepan Sejic has carte blanche from DC to reinvent the origins of one of the publisher’s most popular characters today. Throughout the more than 200 pages of the comic, we see the unique descent into hell of the respectable doctor and psychiatrist Harleen Frances Quinzel until she became the crazy and disturbed Harley Quinn. Throughout this magnificent story, the toxic and disconcerting relationship that will begin with the insane criminal known as the Joker is narrated, changing it irreparably forever. Mr. Sejic does an incredible job with both the comic’s script and its visuals, leaving some truly groundbreaking page layouts and artwork that is a true delight, in one of those comics that are a feast for the eyes. One of the best works recently published by DC.

For those of us of an age, the strips of Leo Verdura created by Rafael Ramos are one of the best memories of our childhood and a mythical name in the history of Spanish comics. Reading his adventures in the Little Country youth supplement was a tradition. Beyond nostalgia, this fantastic comprehensive compilation of the entire trajectory of the lion is a magnificent comic for all audiences, and a wonderful gateway to the ninth art for the smallest of the house. Leo Verdura is a lion father of a family and the main tourist attraction of his reserve. But unlike the other lions, he has a peculiarity: he is a vegetarian. We will also meet the other members of his family and several of his colleagues, in hilarious comic strips that also know how to send us messages such as environmentalism or the importance of family and friendship. In this hardcover volume of almost 500 pages, the Norma publishing house compiles all the strips published from the 90s to the year 2000. A wonderful, very entertaining and fun reading that guarantees hours of fun for young and old.
The Buscón in the Indies
- Format: I take hard covers Cartoné. 24.8 x 33.2 cm. 160 pp. Colour.
- Price: 35 euros
Released at the end of 2019, this indispensable graphic novel was one of the great surprises and one of the best releases of that year. The French screenwriter Alain Ayroles and the Spanish cartoonist Juanjo Guarnido (Blacksad) embarked on the task of offering us a magnificent continuation of El Buscón de Quevedo in the form of a graphic novel, and the result could not have been better. In the last paragraph of El Buscón, its protagonist summarized the rest of his life from then on, in the form of a trip to the Indies in search of fortune, a story that we could never read because Quevedo did not write the continuation of his most famous work. It is here where we can live the adventures of Don Pablos de Segovia in the Americas, where we will accompany him from the underworld to palaces, we will travel expeditions through the Amazon and the peaks of the Andes, all in pursuit of the greatest of legends: the El Dorado itself. Of course, following the best picaresque tradition of Quevedo’s novel, how could it be otherwise. The icing on the cake will be a huge work in pencils by Mr. Guarnido, which leaves us speechless page by page, and this magnificent large edition allows us to enjoy his art in all its splendor.
Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (Tabloid Edition)
- Format: I take hard covers Cartoné (214×326 mm.) 56 pages. Colour.
- Price: 14.94 euros
Another timeless classic that had the honor of inaugurating in 1989 the DC line Other worlds or Elseworlds mentioned above, where we were presented with alternative versions of various characters from the publisher. In this case we are situated in a late 19th century Victorian Gotham brilliantly captured in the pages of this great comic. The orphan billionaire Bruce Wayne returns to his native Gotham to fight crime after being trained in Europe by some of the most brilliant minds of the old continent, such as Sherlock Holmes or Sigmund Freud. Dressed in a bat costume to instill fear in the thugs, he walks the streets of his city to impart order. Soon he will have to face a terrible succession of chain murders, perpetrated by one of the most terrible criminals in history: Jack the Ripper himself. This wonderful version in large tabloid format allows you to appreciate in all its glory the tremendous work of Mike Mignola in pencils. The author of Hellboy pulls from his sleeve some vignettes with an incredible art that has remained to be remembered. Without a doubt one of the best batman comics.
Great Marvel Treasures 01. Silver Stela: Parable
- Format: I take hard covers Cartoné. 25.5×35.5 cm. 80 pp. Colour.
- Price: 25 euros
Silver Stela: Parabola, is one of the greatest cult comics of the ninth art, one of those works that transcends the medium to become a true masterpiece. It could not be less when it is the fruit of the joint work of two of the greatest talents in the world of comics: Stan Lee and Jean Giraud, better known as Moebius. The possibility of such talents collaborating was a real event, and from the first conversations between the two it was clear that the Silver Surfer would be the protagonist of the joint work they were going to create. Estela was always one of Stan Lee’s favorite characters, so the choice came as no surprise. The comic takes place in an alternate universe where there are no superheroes on earth, and narrates the arrival of the world-eater Galactus on our planet, but from a different perspective than the one we saw in the pages of Fantastic Four. It turns out to be a very mature work, with strong religious criticism, and being a comic from the late 80s, it showed that there was still a place for classic superheroes. And of course, it also stands out for the huge and superb graphic work of Moebius, halfway between European and American comics. This edition is designed for collectors, with a larger than usual size and paper of a quality much higher than normal. A comic of those that give luster to the most select collections.
Saga (Integral) 01
- Format: I take hardcover Cartoné. 504 pp. 18.3 x 27.6 cm. Colour.
- Price: 45 euros.
Saga is one of the most acclaimed, awarded and adored comics of recent years. It has been called a masterpiece and one of the pinnacles of the ninth art. Brian K. Vaughan offers us a memorable screenplay the likes of which has rarely been seen, and Fiona Staples does a colossal graphic work typical of an artist in a true state of grace. Saga is an emotional and huge intergalactic epic whose starting point is a forbidden love. Marko and Alana’s relationship is a sentence for both of them, as they belong to two opposing space races that maintain a bloody and devastating contest for which there is no peace or truce possible. And despite this, they have had offspring. The forward flight of such a peculiar family through the confines of the cosmos leaves us a sort of hybrid between Romeo and Juliet, Star Wars and Dune in an incomparable odyssey that has elevated this series to the altars of the comic world. Despite being located in a world of space fantasy, the blow of reality that it gives us is tremendous. The universe that he weaves with his stories is mature, rich and always surprising, and his characters are deep and complex and will make his adventures feel like ours. In a year-end full of joys for fans of the world, Planeta Comic has published the first of the 3 full volumes where the series will be compiled up to the present time. In this first we have the 18 initial numbers of the series plus some extra. One of the best comics ever.
El Incal (Comprehensive Edition)
- Format: I take hard covers Cartoné. 318 pages. Colour.
- Price: 34.90 euros.
We are facing one of the great classics of the European graphic novel, a wonderful title where science fiction and philosophical transcendence go hand in hand to offer us an unforgettable space odyssey. A must-have comic perfect for all types of readers. With two enormous talents behind such as the French-Chilean screenwriter Alejandro Jodorowsky and the incomparable artist Moebius, it is not surprising that this epic published between 1980 and 1988 is one of the best graphic novels that can be enjoyed. Jodorowsky tells us the redemption journey of the small-time detective John Difool, who after receiving a mysterious object must face powers beyond his comprehension on a journey in pursuit of the primordial core of the universe. Full of transcendentalism and philosophical charge, the script for El Incal took science fiction to a new level. To top it all off, Moebius’s work literally takes our breath away, capturing the wonders of the universe with an amount of detail and nuance that is totally overwhelming. The wonderful edition of Reservoir Books published in our country in 2017 is perfect to enjoy this classic as it deserves, with a European size and more than 100 pages of very interesting extras never before published in our language.
The Immortal Hulk 01. Or is it both (Marvel Premiere)
- Format: I take paperback Rustic. 17 x 26 cm. 136 pp. Colour.
- Price: 10 euros
The current stage of the Hulk scripted by Al Ewing and drawn by Joe Bennett is one of Marvel’s most acclaimed right now. For just over a year, the monthly series of the emerald giant has become the highlight of the publisher and is sweeping critics and audiences alike. After the events of the second superhero civil war, Bruce Banner is dead. Or so everyone thinks. But it turns out that the Hulk is immortal, a terrifying creature who returns from the dead every night to dispense ruthless justice. Banner is a loner who runs away from everything and everyone, and who subsists day by day with what he finds. If he dies, which as we will see he will do several times, he will come back to life every night as his green-skinned alter ego. And he has decided to become a judge, jury and executioner, punishing injustices and local crime ruthlessly and brutally. The series is shrouded in an ominous atmosphere of horror such as has not been seen in Marvel in a long time, also reminiscent of old serials like The Twilight Zone and the like. It is not usual for Panini to compile a series so early, but given that its first issues are exhausted, this inexpensive softcover compilation volume with the first 5 issues of it is a great gift to hook anyone to the series of the moment .
Blacksad. Comprehensive Edition (Vol. 1 to 5)
- Format: I take hardcover Cartoné. 308 pages. Colour.
- Price: 49 euros
With a video game released at the end of last year, and an imminent and highly anticipated sixth volume in the making for 2021, what better time than this to recommend this comprehensive volume that compiles the 5 titles of one of the best and most award-winning graphic novels in our country. . Blacksad is a superb comic set in 1950s America, with the peculiarity that its characters are anthropomorphic animals. Inheriting the best tradition of film and black novels, we follow the rude detective John Blacksad in 5 cases that as a good and insightful detective he must solve. Despite the decision to use human-shaped animals instead of people, the recreation of America at the time is magnificent, highly detailed, and nuanced. The characters are deep and well developed, to offer mature plots according to the great setting of the work. Juan Díaz Canales does a phenomenal job on the scripts and Juanjo Guarnido leaves us some pages that are pure art, with several vignettes worthy of exhibition, using wonderful lines and colors. Winner of a multitude of awards, including several Eisners, and being a true international success, especially in France and the United States, this volume that compiles all the Blacksad material published so far is a magnificent gift for the holidays.
Marvel Young Adults. Hawk Eye. Private detective
- Format: I take paperback Rustic. 272 pp. Colour.
- Price: 9.95 euros
Panini’s Marvel Young Adults line is a great way to introduce new readers to the world of comics at a price that couldn’t be cheaper. Almost 300 pages for 9.95 euros is a real bargain. Of the 4 titles that have released this line, this one starring the new Hawkeye is our favorite. In addition, the peculiar Kate Bishop is news in the video game world as she is the first character added by DLC to the irregular Marvel’s Avengers. Kate first appeared in 2005 as a member of The Young Avengers, which emerged from the Avengers: Disunity event. Her popularity increased when she appeared as a regular companion to Clint Burton in the superlative Hawkeye stage that Matt Fraction and David Aja made in 2012. With all this, it is not surprising that Miss Bishop inherited the title of Hawkeye and star in his own series. In this volume the first 12 numbers of this series are compiled. Kate founded her own detective agency, and precisely the detective tone will set the tone for this comic. You will surround yourself with new characters with appearances from old acquaintances to solve cases ranging from bullying and missing young people, to underground fight clubs or dangerous sects, touching everything from everyday themes to crazy supernatural plots. El apartado visual es muy fresco y emplea varios recursos muy originales, continuando en cierta medida el mencionado trabajo de David Aja. Grandísimo cómic, con una relación calidad-precio imbatible.

Wonder Woman: Tierra muerta vol. 01 (de 2)
- Formato: Tomo tapas duras Cartoné (216×276 mm). 96 págs. Color.
- Precio: 14,94 euros.
No queríamos terminar esta lista sin recomendaros un cómic de nuestra amazona favorita, tan en boga actualmente por protagonizar nueva película. Nos vais a permitir que os recomendemos este primer volumen de Tierra Muerta cuando aún no se ha publicado el segundo, pero es que estamos ante un nuevo clásico de la princesa de Themyscira y uno de los mejores cómics de superhéroes que hemos disfrutado en mucho tiempo. Daniel Warren Johnson se lo guisa y se lo come encargándose de guión, dibujo y entintado para ofrecernos una obra mayúscula. Ubicado fuera de continuidad oficial, se nos presenta a Diana en una situación totalmente desoladora. Tras un letargo de siglos, y sin el menor recuerdo de como ha llegado a esa situación, despierta en un mundo post apocalíptico totalmente devastado donde no queda el más mínimo resquicio de civilización, y donde la supervivencia es una lucha despiadada y brutal. Pronto descubre que deberá enfrentarse a unos titánicos monstruos para proteger a los últimos humanos, pero sus poderes se han visto menguados. Tierra Muerta es un cómic espectacular lleno de acción, tremendamente respetuoso con el personaje, pero a su vez sabe presentarlo desde un prisma totalmente novedoso. De lo mejor que ha publicado DC en años, y sin duda una obra imprescindible y un futuro clásico dentro de las obras protagonizadas por la princesa guerrera. No podemos esperar para leer el segundo tomo.
