May 1968 (w/Tony Fleecs) - "The Origin Of the Silver Surfer!”
Tony Fleecs has spent much of the last 10 years illustrating IDW's My Little Pony and has drawn some of the biggest icons in licensed kids' comics, including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, Care Bears, and Grumpy Cat.
His latest creator-owned comic — Stray Dogs, published by Image Comics — is basically Lady and the Tramp meets The Silence of the Lambs. It's really, really good, but holy moley, don't let your kids read it.
