Nothing I'd really argue, except for some of the ordering

but I would take Hulk out of the list, slide everything down and put Jason Aaron's Ghost Rider at #100

surprised Ultimate Spider-Man didn't make the list

I'd argue with some (a lot) of the ordering, but it's awesome to see Incredible Hercules break the top ten.

Seriously, read that series.

How did Spider-man make top 2008 after that new day crap? seriously I think the new day crap may be as bad and pointless as maximum carnage (but at least maxium carnage gave us a kick *** game out of it)

Because it's actually very enjoyable and I find it to be the most fun I have reading a Spider-Man comic since Millar did his run on MK: Spider-Man, which a lot of other people see in as well.

Okay then. I read some of the new day stuff and it made me stop even buying new spider-man comics until it's undone. But that's me and only be just me who hates that.

The list should be this:

1) Action Comics
2) Green Lantern
3) Justice Society of America
4) AMazing Spider-Man
5) Captain Britain and MI:13

and that's it.

Oh, and Fables.

Joe, there is no way you would not like Invincible.

I've actually read the first 20 issues over the last couple weeks, and I do like it, even though I think Kirkman writes the worst dialogue in comics.

But yeah, it's really good, I'm just not all the way caught up yet.

I agree, I frequently have the desire to rewrite lines while I'm reading the comic. Other than that, I can't put it down. I think I'm about 30 issues, in myself.

Don't expect me to take you with me when I go to s
I got bored with INVINCIBLE around #40 or so. I had downloaded it all as one pack and read it in a couple of days and really liked it but I wasn't really interested in it monthly, especially with the delays it often had. I will catch up one day.
