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?
The Walking Dead,Fatale,Near Death,Storm Dogs,Happy,BPRD,XO-Manowar
American Vampire,Animal Man,Swamp Thing
Daredevil, Winter Soldier,Indestructible Hulk
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.

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...
Shade the Changing Man
Enigma (mini series, don't care)
V for Vendetta (I believe this is published under Vertigo now, yes?)
For some reason I find liking minis and OGNs over long running ongoings weird.
