    I'm disappointed that Swamp thing, animal man and six-gun gorilla didn't make the list but either way I agree with most placements.
    2013 was a great year for comics

    I wanted to see "Watson & Holmes", but there you go.

    A purported list of the 100 Best Comics that does not include Fables is an automatic FAIL. One might as well list the 100 Best Palaces without the Taj Mahal, or the 100 Best U.S. Presidents without Lincoln.

    Good list, but Monkeybrain deserved a better showing.
    American Vampire, Atomic Robo, Chew, Fatale, Hoax Hunters, Manhattan Projects, Revival, Saga, The Sixth Gun, The Walking Dead

    I got problems with the list.

    From a Marvel standpoint, seems pretty focused on certain genres only. I'm not going to argue Hawkeye, but Young Avengers to me is just not there.

    Personally, I really love Hickman and Remender's Avengers and think they should be higher on the list.

    Jenkins Deathmatch should be on the list, but seeing the other selections I'm not surprised its missing. I really would also give Avengers Arena a bit more credit than this list does. FF would not make my top 100, it had a few decent issues but wasnt there overall.

    While I'm a huge fan, I'm OK with Fables not on there... the last storyline was not one of the strongest... while the current one IS really great, it's still in progress.

    Next year, if it doesn't get on there, I'll be upset :)

    Totally agree six-gun Gorilla deserves some love, too.
    Like Kyle Rayner? Check out my classic review thread:

    If your favorite comic isn't on the list then maybe that's a good thing. It opened up a slot for a comic you may have never read. You already know Fables is good, a list telling you the same would accomplish what exactly? Give some new shit a try. I've only read four out of 100 comics on that list and I'm not having a cow over it. I know what I read is good, I'd like to see what I'm not reading that's good too.

    I'm just not seeing Nowhere Men?
    I'm glad that the independents are making more of a serious dent this year.

    No its a slap in the face. New Avengers generates more discussion on the forums then 90 of the books on the list combined. It also has mid level sales. There are probably another half dozen books in a similar situation. These books deserve a bump.

    You're right, some comic readers may have never heard of The Avengers. And I'm sure you've read all 70+ of those indy titles on the list and know for a fact The Avengers is better.

    Looking over the list I guess the only title that I'm truly surprised isn't on here is Nowhere Men considering it's received continuous four and five star ratings. Considering all the great indie titles that are on here I'll bet they actually forgot it...

    Of course not. But I've read several of the titles. Is this list suppose to represent what most comic book readers, read and discussed? Or is it how CBR staff wished readers, read and discussed? Like Avengers and Batman dont deserve praise if readers are greatly interested in the books.

    You obviously haven't read the intros because it's all explained pretty well there.
