10 Modern Comic Book Runs Destined To Become Classics

10. Dan Abnett's Titans

DC Comics

Dan Abnett had a lot of baggage to sort through after the Titans' tumultuous last few years. The New 52 was not very kind to the legendary team at all, erasing most of them out of existence, and beating those it didn't with a stick.

Given this template to work with, Abnett clearly saw only one solution: lighten things up a little for once. The first arc of this run sets the mood going forward perfectly, with an overriding theme of hope and friendship. The Titans, for the first time in too long, felt like actual friends who enjoyed each other's company.

On top of all of that, the artwork is gorgeous, with Brett Booth giving career defining work on the book. The Titans look amazing, with Donna Troy's suit in particular being a standout, finding the perfect balance between skintight spandex that the wonder family is known for, and actual battle armor that would suit an amazon warrior.

if the rather dour and dark turn the big two have been taking the last few years has rubbed you wrong, Titans Rebirth is precisely what you've been looking for.
