'Men in Black'

Lowell Cunningham's take on the infamous government clean-up agents was first published by Aircel Comics (who were bought by Malibu Comics, then Marvel) in 1990. With artwork by Sandy Carruthers, the 4-color adventures of Agents Jay and Kay have a much darker tone to them than their 1997 movie counterparts. Director Barry Sonnenfeld's J and K tackled the same types of problems but had much better senses of humor on the whole, a trait that helped it earn the title of the highest grossing comic-based film in history until 2002 (that darn Spider-Man). With two three-issue series and two original one-shots, the comic is worth a look.
