Milligan and Allred's X-Force
In the early 2000's, I was really getting into monthly comics. One of the first series I followed religiously was Peter Milligan and Mike Allred's run on X-Force. It was an unusual superhero series because it was about a celebrity team of mutants, and characters were introduced and then killed the next issue. Also, most of the "heroes" were dicks. It was incredibly compelling, due to the unpredictable and bizarre stories. This series introduced me to Mike Allred, and I went on to find all the Madman trades and, thus, it led me to more and more creator-owned comics. So, I'm grateful to X-Force for that.
