    I will go with Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, it revolutionized comics in the 80's, paved the way for the British invasion and the Vertigo line and told some darn fine stories along the way, with some great artwork.

    2. Cerebus
    3. X-Men (Claremont)
    4. Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos (44-81)
    5. Eightball
    6. Jingle Jangle Tales
    7. Maus
    8. Conan the Barbarian
    9.Preacher
    10. Avengers- Busiek/Perez
    11. Sandman Mystery Theater
    12. Alan Moore's Swamp Thing

    Usagi Yojimbo: Fantastic art, strong characterization and supporting cast, meticulous historical research, strong in both simple stand-alone stories and densely layered multi-parters, and achieving a perfect balance between lighthearted fancy and dark, historically accurate brutality.

    While it appeared as a Sunday supplement comic strip initially it has appeared in comic form as well through reprints and it trades, so I am going with Will Eisner's The Spirit. Eisner's influence is felt throughout the industry and the Spirit is his quintessential opus.

    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.

    Apparently my choice didn't meet the criteria. Could you qualify what is meant by storyline or event?

    You have to add Frank Miller's Daredevil run to this list. Introduced the Hand, Stick and Elektra plus made Bullseye a legitimate foe.

    23. Wolfman/Perez's New Teen Titans:

    Well developed team in which every member was eventually fleshed out into a rich thinking and feeling character with his/her own fears, dreams, and struggles, plus we got to witness DCs second generation of legacy characters begin to mature into their own identities, particularly Dick Grayson, Donna Troy, and Wally West. I think this comic captured a sense of teens undergoing maturity that hadn't been done before and hasn't been successfully replicated since.

    Whhops Shaxper beat me to it

    Ok some bookkeeping then-putting in Ear in the Fireplace's choice of Immortal Superman and the last suggestion of Miller's Daredevil the list should look like this...

    1. Astro City
    2. Cerebus
    3. X-Men (Claremont)
    4. Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos (44-81)
    5. Eightball
    6. Jingle Jangle Tales
    7. Maus
    8. The Immortal Superman (Action #385-387)
    9. Conan the Barbarian
    10.Preacher
    11. Avengers- Busiek/Perez
    12. Sandman Mystery Theater
    13. Alan Moore's Swamp Thing
    14. Howard Chaykin's American Flagg!
    15. Usagi Yojimbo
    16. Bone
    17. The Spirit by Will Eisner
    18. Eddie Campbell's Alec
    19. Hawkworld, especially #s 1-14
    20. Strangers in Paradise, "I Dream of You"
    21. Sandman
    22. Daredevil by Frank Miller

    Slam-I assume it is Neil Gaiman's Sandman and not the earlier DC series from the 70's that Jack Kirby was involved in?

    I will add another to the list now...Jim Starlin's Dreadstar, classic space fantasy and cosmic goodness at its finest.

    so

    1. Astro City
    2. Cerebus
    3. X-Men (Claremont)
    4. Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos (44-81)
    5. Eightball
    6. Jingle Jangle Tales
    7. Maus
    8. The Immortal Superman (Superman #385-387)
    9. Conan the Barbarian
    10.Preacher
    11. Avengers- Busiek/Perez
    12. Sandman Mystery Theater
    13. Alan Moore's Swamp Thing
    14. Howard Chaykin's American Flagg!
    15. Usagi Yojimbo
    16. Bone
    17. The Spirit by Will Eisner
    18. Eddie Campbell's Alec
    19. Hawkworld, especially #s 1-14
    20. Strangers in Paradise, "I Dream of You"
    21. Sandman
    22. Daredevil by Frank Miller
    23. Wolfman/Perez New Teen Titans
    24. Jim Starlin's Dreadstar
