The first that crossed my mind.


Great list.

I'll second it, but add a few personal favourites:

* The Punisher MAX series. A special mention to The Slavers arc - completely brutal and pitiless, this is Frank Castle as I love him: Unstoppable, merciless, a nightmare to terrify the scum of the earth.
* WE3. I loved it, even though as a manly man I had to pretend that I got some dust in my eye.
* The Ultimates. I know, not popular, but I don't care - I thought it was awesome. Complete cheese - but awesome, tasty, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth cheese.
* Batman Year One and Death, The High Cost of Living. Both of them live in the shadows of their more famous siblings but both of them are worthy mentions, frequently overlooked.

You damn fools can't even get this list right.

1. WATCHMEN- Simply the greatest work in the history of the medium.

2.THE GOLDEN AGE- Flawless from beginning to end and WHAT an ending!

3.THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS- Arguably the most impactful storyline eve.

4.THE INFINITY GAUNTLET- Starlin's masterwork, if he never has a hit again he give us the INFINITY GAUNTLET.

5.DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN- If it weren't for DKR this would be Miller's best work.

I can see some people not liking it for certain reasons

but calling WATCHMEN of all books mediocre..is simply laughable, opinions and all..but that is still ridiculous to say

I get why people like it and all, but I found it only moderately entertaining to read.

I don't care for Watchmen either. I thoroughly enjoyed the film, though -- it wasn't as riddled with Moore's skewed views of society as the comic series was.

If we're talking Moore's works, I much prefer books like V For Vendetta, Miracleman, The Killing Joke, or his run on Swamp Thing... Hell, I even enjoyed Tom Strong more than Watchmen.

These days, it wouldn't even rank in my top 10... Let alone my top 5.

Yeah, Watchmen is just too self conscious for me to enjoy.

V is my favorite Moore work, and Swamp Thing may be his best (it wasn't up my alley, but was undeniably well written). But I'm not as hard on Watchmen as some. It still holds up, imo. I don't quite understand the hate. Ozy's "20 minutes ago" reveal gave me legitimate chills to read, Manhattan remains one of the better ruminations of superpowers that exists in comics, and Rorschach is still interesting and deep, both as a character and as a moral lens through which to critique some elements of our culture.

Manhattan's characterization was excellent. He was the best part of the story for me.

The rest of the series just doesn't hold up, and is too jam packed with Moore's societal views and whatnot. But again, that is just my opinion.

I am re-reading Marvels at the moment. It must have been really difficult not to hate Busiek and Ross a little bit when it came out. It is just so very, very good.
