First issue hit stands in 1998. Joe Madureira wrote the book with Munier Sharrieff. Joe MAD! drew the book although Adam Warren drew a back story in #6. Joe drew X-Men and Deadpool and Savage Dragon and Vanguard in the 90's. Ultimates 3 and tons of cover art for video game magazines as well as comics. The dude moved on to video game work, designing his own series with them horseman of the apocalypse games Darksiders.
Why it's worth defending: Because good things come to those who wait. I've never had a hard time waiting for issues of any series when the delivery is so well done. The book fired on all pistons for fans of fantasy, RPGs, manga and video games. The characters themselves each a nod to the different genres pull together. Joe MAD! was at the top of his game.
Look, if we do this, I demand it be live on the show - none of this prerecorded defense shiz.
