    RECOUNT, I SAY!

    Here here. The only thing DP and AM had in common was the same brilliant writer.

    I'll be the lone Preacher dissenter here, I don't think it belongs within miles of this list. Beautifully paced, but otherwise, I found it to be a total car crash of a book. Hard to look away from even as you're regretting it. Replace with Milligan's Shade The Changing Man post haste. :)

    Hard to deny Sandman deserving the top spot, the only other contender in my mind would possibly be The Invisibles.

    This list makes me want to go back and read some of these again.

    I can never understand Preacher love myself, great lead characthers but uneven and crude early Ennis. Brillant Saint of killers special but i think Ennis HB run is better.

    This list is too much popular creator name only imo. Transmetro is hardly best Vertigo, 100 bullets.....
    Where is Scalped?
    Pull List:
    The Walking Dead,Fatale,Near Death,Storm Dogs,Happy,BPRD,XO-Manowar
    American Vampire,Animal Man,Swamp Thing
    Daredevil, Winter Soldier,Indestructible Hulk

    100 Bullets is also in my top 10 of all time comics.

    I just dived into Sandman myself, having just finished the first 6 trades of the new edition, and its fine, BUT no way is the first half of the series some amazing transcendental work. I found most of the art to be adequate, again nothing Amazing. It has held up my interest, so theres that.


    jesse custer, share your top 10, i'm curious.

    Eh, 100 Bullets is alright. Liked the first arc, but it dropped quickly once it moved onto the second arc and on.

    Well clearly the whole 100 issue run is just alright after reading two arcs.

    It would take me a while to do a proper top 10, but here's a top five in order:

    1. Industrial Gothic
    2. We3
    3. Swamp Thing
    4. Sandman
    5. Preacher

    I also know I would strongly consider Incognegro, Daytripper, and V for Vendetta for inclusion.

    I think he was saying that the first trade was good and everything went downhill from there.

    Regardless, the best comic books are good at the beginning.

    Those shouldn't be there either.

    Something to consider is the totality of the runs here; Swamp Thing under Moore was great, but for many years thereafter it was abysmally bad. Are they taking that into account?

    In no particular order I suppose I'd include...

    Sandman
    Swamp Thing
    Invisibles
    Doom Patrol
    Animal Man
    Hellblazer
    Shade the Changing Man
    Enigma (mini series, don't care)
    Lucifer
    V for Vendetta (I believe this is published under Vertigo now, yes?)

    Miniseries definitely count. And yep, V is published under Vertigo now.

    It's less an expression of the individual, and less engaging.

    But Engima transcends that weakness IMHO.
