This is my favorite. Not suprising considering it's the only comic book series I've ever read.

Shade the changing man
The Sandman

well, its my favorite that hasn't already been listed. No, really, its a great book. I know, its from the 'early crappy Image line' but its turned into a great, great, old fashioned fun comic. Watchmen is very good, as Scootsadoodledoo said. Preacher, Sandman, most of the early Marvel Books back in the day. Howard the Duck by Gerber, Hellboy, Hardboiled...

I predict that someone will turn this into a flaming comic book fans because they are gay losers who live in their parents basements threads soon....

The World's Greatest Comic Magazine: The Fantastic Four

The Sandman and nothing else.

Double survey! Anyway, my vote goes out for Spider Man. I never got into comics really, but I just really like reading Spider Man.
2002-08-25 1:27:42 AM  
Archie, Richie Rich
2002-08-25 1:28:25 AM  
Anyone remember 'Ralph Snart'?
( I believe that's what it was called? )

2002-08-25 1:29:52 AM  
Sandman, I say. Honorable mentions include Miracleman, Watchmen, Preacher, Astro City, and old time Fantastic Four.

2002-08-25 1:30:43 AM  
Sandman is awesome!!!
2002-08-25 1:30:56 AM  
Yep, The Sandman.

Anyone else remember Cloak and Dagger? Boy was that a limited run.
2002-08-25 1:31:02 AM  
I've never actually had a comic book, but uhh...Penny Arcade is good...and stuff.

I will name my first child after you if you can solve this long standing mystery about my favorite childhood comic...

The hero was a woman with billowy blonde hair who rode rollerskates. Her name was something like "Dazzle." I had them all! early 80s

Any ideas?
2002-08-25 1:31:58 AM  
I wasn't ever into comics unless you count Wicked Wanda from Penthouse Magazine. Anyone else remember that one?

Spiderman does kick ass though.
2002-08-25 1:32:51 AM

Sandman, although Moore/Gaiman's work on Miracleman definitely ranks up there. And of course I shouldn't ignore Kingdom Come, Preacher, Watchmen, and Dark Knight Returns (although DK2 was crap).

Also of note is Midnight Nation, which is the best short-run title I've ever read.
2002-08-25 1:33:41 AM  
the tick
fun with milk and cheese
gi joe-new image series looks good too

oh, and spider man makes you gay ;)
2002-08-25 1:33:42 AM  

That was Dazzler, the greatest story ever told about a disco superhero. It was an 80's marvel limited series, I think. She was also a member of the X-Men, if I recall things correctly

I have about 3/4 of the whole run in a box someplace. I loved this mag before it got so damn depressing and killed people off.
2002-08-25 1:35:18 AM  
Call me what you wish, but I grew up reading Archie Comics. Yep, the good ol Riverdale gang was good enough for me. Every week when we went to the grocery store, I was allowed to spend less than $2 on something I wanted. Every week I bought a new Archie.....I now have tons of them, still at my parents house in a box.......

/waits for the negative Archie comments, while hiding in shame

The Sandman, Uncanny X-Men (during the Claremont years), Daredevil (Frank Miller), old Cerebus, Green Lantern, and of course Amazing Spider-Man

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns _2_1/002-9117343-8140843

Did you know that Frank Miller wrote the screen play for the first Robocop?
2002-08-25 1:36:19 AM  
1. Action Comics (Supergirl)
2. Green Lantern
3. Detective Comics (Batman)
2002-08-25 1:37:04 AM

Sandman - best. comic. ever.

was i the only one that bought these things?
2002-08-25 1:39:22 AM  
The Alien comics set in the "Aliens" universe from the movies are my favorites. The Aliens VS Predator comics get lumped in there to, and they deserve it. I recently bought half of the original "Aliens" series at half price books. Good creepy black and white space horror!
2002-08-25 1:39:27 AM  

Nothing wrong with Archie:)
2002-08-25 1:39:36 AM  
Top ten great comic books off the top of my head:

The Dark Knight Returns
From Hell
Ghost World
The Sandman
The Spirit
Strangers in Paradise
Understanding Comics

Garfield did not make the list. Watch him burn.
2002-08-25 1:39:43 AM  
well damn... thats hard.
There have been great hero comics, but they alternate between great teams, and horrible teams working on em. And what about all the great indy comics out there that have no guys in tights?

Well, I guess best superhero would have to go to Batman or Spiderman, or perhaps some of the better X-Men periods.

As far as non-super hero stuff... I think Preacher of Sandman offered the most solid stories.

Here is a site dedicated to Wicked Wanda
Probably NSFW (cartoon titties)
2002-08-25 1:40:19 AM  
Ok, The Watchmen and The Sandman are right up there, but my all time favourite has to be Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children by Pirahna Press. Anyone else ever read it? The absolute best book ever!

Certainly not the best ever, but an interesting premise.
