If Comics Were Albums (or vice versa)

Blood on the Tracks is far and away my favorite album. I think it was my favorite album from the very first time I heard it, which I think was when I was twelve or thirteen riding in my dad's car. He had a bootleg copy of it from when he lived in Saudi Arabia (on the classic pirate 747 label)(named for the preferred means of getting albums into the country). I loved it then even before I knew about breaking up and broken hearts. There was just something so perfect about the sound. It's one of the few albums that I have never grown tired of.

And if I had to be asked what my favorite single comic book issue was... it would probably be Spider-Man #50, though to be honest any issue from that Stan Lee / John Romita Sr. run is pretty awesome.
