    Your inclusion of a single issue (with which I was previously unfamliar; I have to say, even for a nonfan of '70s Kirby, that that looks great ... too bad he didn't stick to war books that decade) reminds me that my #4 listing above certainly needs to include the Greatest Single Comic Ever™, Sgt. Fury Annual #4.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    In light of Kurt's latest addition, now I remember the single issue I was thinking about before the LoSH snagged my attention ...

    ... & Marty's (which showed up while I was typing the previous sentence) makes me think (by a rather more indirect route) of another.

    Though it occurs to me that it might be worthwhile to try this same approach with single issues. We did that (albeit with a scant 10, not 100) for Kurt's very first Christmas listing back in '05, but we've had a considerable amount of turnover since then. For that matter, my own choices wouldn't necessarily be the same even for 10; I've read (or re-read) a whole lot of great comics since then.

    Thoughts, anyone?

    I am all for that. If you start it I can already think of single issues I would list.

    If no one has any objections (one never knows what ideas Kurt might have up his sleeve for the upcoming Christmas installment, though obviously so far he hasn't gone back & covered old ground in any way, shape or form), I'll do so as soon as we've reached 100 on this one ...

    ... which by the way has been a blast. Great idea, Chris!

    What was that book 1000 comics to read before you die? The Classic boards should have our own version of this. There are books on the list I haven't of.

    Excellent point.

    There are at least two books along those lines -- one (that I was previously utterly unaware of) mentioned here just last week or so, & an earlier one by Tony Isabella that I don't own but have looked through at Books-a-Million.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    I liked both of 'em quite a bit, although Isabella's book was as much "good fun" as "vital reference."

    Anyway...
