Nerdist Comics Panel #25: Definitives

Len Wein (creator of Wolverine), Adam Beechen (Hench), and Ben Blacker (Thrilling Adventure Hour) discuss who are the definitive writers and artists for certain characters, and what story can be considered a character’s “definitive” story.


  1. Daniel says:

    There will be many who argue with me, mostly tweens and old men, that the definitive Superman writer is Grant Morrison. The best moments and greatest statements about Superman have all been penned by him, and he wisely sticks to a Silver Age characterization, while keeping him startlingly relevant.

  2. Pat_JG says:

    My definitive X-Men is the 90’s animated series.

  3. Match3s says:

    My Definitive Batman is Jeph Loeb’s Batman work with Tim Sale and later with Jim Lee

  4. Brandon M. says:

    Ben, could the Batman writer you’re thinking of be Mike W. Barr? Probably his two most prominent Batman stories were Batman: Son of the Demon (with incredible artwork by Jerry Bingham) and Batman: Year Two (illustrated by both the inimitable Alan Davis and a very early Todd McFarlane).
