Kevin Huizenga (HIGH zing gah) has made a name for himself in the world of alt comics in the last decade. His big claim to fame is his main protagonist and everyman, Glenn Ganges. Glenn is a normal guy who has little problems like everyone else. He has insomnia; He has an infestation of starlings around his house; He receives mail about missing children; He's a normal dude. Kevin Huizenga uses him to talk about issues that are on his mind or put him in stories that interest him.

|Marvel Comics #1, the 70th anniversary addition reprinting the classic comic with slick new painted cover and computer colored interior.|
Action Comics #1 with it’s first appearance of the hugely popular character of Superman can be considered the most significant comic ever published for having started the whole superhero fad that is still going on today and popularizing the medium of comic books as a whole.

I feel like every other post on The Great Comic Book Heroes is on an Alan Moore comic. I don't mean to favor him, it's just that I find his work so inspiring. For example I was reminded of Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie's character Cobweb the other day. She is a typical 40's style cheese cake superheroine. She doesn't have any real superpowers but what she does have is a see through costume and no undies. Perfect to make a 13 year old boy's mind go wild with lustful thoughts.
