    Okay, let's start predicting the final 10!

    In no order:

    Saga
    Velvet
    Hawkeye
    Daredevil
    Batman Incorporated
    The Wake
    Animal Man
    East of West (was it named already?).
    Bandette
    Lazarus

    Saga will probably win if I had to guess (Come on Lazarus! Defeat them all!)

    Hm... haven't seen Aquaman or Swamp Thing at all on this list and they've had a pretty good year.

    No Peter Panzerfaust either, which is a shame.

    No idea what the top 10 will be, but I think it's a safe bet saying Saga, Hawkeye and Daredevil will be in there. Hopefully Lazarus too, since I'm loving it.

    Pretty good lost but I'd swap Bandette, Velvet and Batman inc. for Wonder woman, Aquaman and Swamp thing

    I think it's almost unfair to give any book that hasn't been around the whole year a spot in the Top 10.

    As much as I love Lazarus, the Wake and Velvet I don't think any of them should be top 10. Even considering how brilliant I believe them to be.
    Buy Green Arrow!!!!!

    These seem definite to me:

    Saga
    East of West
    Hawkeye
    Daredevil
    The Wake

    It also seems likely to me that one or two graphic novels will be in there... The March? Boxers and Saints? Battling Boy?

    And these seem like maybes to me:
    Manhattan Projects - was top 10 last year
    Mind the Gap - this was pretty high last year too, and i haven't seen it yet.
    Any chance Zero makes it? I think the first four issues have been better than Pretty Deadly and Sex Criminals, but maybe I'm alone in that.

    Eh, Wonder Woman was named back in the fifties alongside Green Arrow.

    I mostly mentioned Velvet because for some reason, comics that have only a very few number of issues out turned out to really have ranked high for some reason (at least Rat Queens was in the 90s. It felt more in place with it.

    The list isn't "comics that have been around a long time." It's "Top 100", period. If the team feels a book is that good, then that's where it goes.

    The only one I have read is Pretty Deadly, I thought it was a good first issue but I did not add it to the pull list because I'm transitioning away from floppies. I may pick up a trade later though.

    So far I've read at least one on each installment, that's more than usual for me.

    No way these don't make it:

    Saga
    East of West
    The Wake
    Daredevil
    Hawkeye

    As for the other five:

    Lazarus
    Swamp Thing
    Zero
    Battling Boy
    Boxers/Saints

    Lazarus feels like it should be a shoe-in. If it wasn't in the top 10 it would have appeared already. I sort of feel the same way with Swampy but to a lesser degree. It's just been too good and has gotten such praise to not at least be somewhere on a top 100 list. Zero's the dark horse but I've seen it on enough other lists that I think it has a shot. And I just don't see those two OGNs not making the list at all.

    What an amazing time for comics, with so many creators firing on all cylinders. (except for DC)

    Image is really killing everyone, though. Seems any comic they release, people love. Even the terminally boring brubaker and rucka!

    Decent list. I'm shocked Flash hasn't made the list. Its been a very fun book the last arc and reveal with Reverse Flash.
