    If you don't recall "Miracles, Inc.", here they are, from Harvey's UNEARTHLY SPECTACULARS No. 2, December, 1966.

    And Sam Grainger's "Sentinels" was the back-up series in most issues of Charlton's PETER CANNON...THUNDERBOLT.

    Aloha,

    Scott!

    Unearthly Spectaculars was already on my want list (along with the other short-lived mid-'60s Harvey forays into superheroics, of which I own only the couple of issues of whatever title featured Jig-Saw, or something like that). Now it's on there even more.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."

    To further whet your appetite, here's Wood's "Miracles, Inc." splash page. The third issue of UNEARTHLY SPECTACULARS includes a second "Miracles, Inc." story, but be warned; it's by Joe Orlando and although okay, doesn't display a fraction of the charm of Wood's initial story.

    And here's a panel from Sam Grainger's "Sentinels", just for good measure!

    Aloha,

    Scott!

    Oh yeah ! That is sharp ! Where's it from ? Did Alex Ross do that ?

    A couple that barely got nudged off the list include :

    L.E.G.I.O.N. - the best sci-fi group title you never read



    Top Ten - My show tv show of all-time, Hill Street Blues, and a crazy cross-dimensional setting kinda like Munden's Bar from Grimjack



    the Authority - what the X-Men did for team comics in the 70's, the Authority did later, raising the bar

    Most definitely.

    It's from...

    Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross by Alex Ross


    When I saw this some years ago I wanted to be wall paper on my computer, but the funny thing is...I couldn't find it on the internet. So I had to scanned it from the book.

    It's really the best portrayed image of the JSA from Alex Ross yet.

    Not sure if that was the first mention of Top 10, but if so it's definitely about time. Great comic, great characters.

    Along with that one, I'll take (in no particular order)

    Teen Titans (original '60s version)
    JSA
    Legion of Super-Heroes ('60s version through the last few years, the Waid "threeboot" very much included)
    Young Justice (the late '90s comic; I gather there's another version around today, but I'm unacquainted with it as of this writing)
    Great Lakes Avengers
    Defenders (mid-'70s version)
    Inferior Five
    X-Men (original version)
    JLI

    ... Though that omits the THUNDER Agents.

    And Nextwave.

    And the Noble Causes guys.

    And the BPRDers.

    And whatever the team in Young Heroes in Love might've been called.

    Not to mention, for godssakes, the fershlugginer Howling Commandos.

    Back to the drawing board ...

    I always had this perverse idea of taking the Teen Titans, Superboy, LOSH and all other juniors and putting them in a brand new title called SUPER HEROES IN TRAINING (or S.H.I.T.)

    I'd also revamp the ALL STAR SQUADRON (A.S.S.) by only giving members with great asses membership...clearly it will be all female.

    Uh, oh yeah, my Top 10 would include the JLA, Uncanny X-Men, Ultimate X-Men....

    They were my #9 until Polar Bear mentioned the SCPA. Guess you could say I chose dogs over dogfaces.
