Neither House of M or Infinite Crisis should be anywhere near this list.

I can't believe I forgot about the Watchmen...as far as technical, literary, and overall artistic value, undoubtedly the best...although Kingdom Come is very close.

Onslaught sucked - just for the record.

Sucked HARD.

And....the story in Silver Surfer: Requiem WAS beautiful - props for putting it up there, but I thought we were focusing more on the wide-events?

Yes, "wide events". I am talking about dedicated Graphic Novels, or titled storylines from the regular comic books. No one-shotters.

I really thought I would hear more people digging the
Dark Knight Returns story.

OOOOHHHHHH!!! I forgot one...

Emerald Twilight. Hal Jordan. Awesome.

Elementals, Shadowspear story, with Lord Saker, was also very cool, for you Old School readers that read stuff from the '80's.

And, yes, Onslaught was one of the storylines that made me sad to be a comic book guy.

Story-wise, COIE was the only one of my choices that would qualify under those stips.

And I felt Requiem had to be there. It moved me to tears.

Four of the best issues I've ever read in my life.

They were good.

I disagree, "Civil War" rocked and showed Marvel has balls yes


5)Spider-man Death of Gwen Stacey
4)Dark Phoenix Saga
3)Daredevil: Guardian Devil
2)Ultimates vol 1 & 2
1)Secret Wars vol 1

These are what I would recommend, but if you are asking for what to buy, the best bet is to flick through some trades in the store and get what catches your eye the most yes My top five favourite are Marvel comics by coincidence, there's tons of DC stuff I love smile

It was never even half way decent. Maximum Carnage makes House of M look like Watchmen.

so you had the same standards on comics when you were 12 as you are currently?

when you're younger, the complexity of plot matters much less

So being 12 years old means I'm supposed to have bad taste?
