I'm thinking I may just go with the in-between compromise of +5 per vote (i.e. votes are worth 30 points down to 6 points).


Badger - it's pretty likely I won't finish the final tally 'til Tuesday, so just get it in when you can.

Loki - I cast no stones; so many of my own lists have seen me throwing up my hands and submitting whatever order.

In the end I couldn't dedicate lots of time to making my list (damn you, real life, and damn you, flu!) so I went with my guts and ended up nominating/ordering mostly superhero books, which are the ones that left the most lasting impressions after I read them (including my favorite childhood mexican comic nobody else will vote for because, nostalgia aside, it was pretty terrible).

That said, I do think my Top 5 are objectively the best comics ever and you're wrong if you don't agree

i'm sure a lot of us have some faves that won't be on the final list, but remember, all that matters is that we have fun

and that we don't put fucking watchmen at #1

That's rediculous.

It's going to be Dark Knight Returns.

Since i only read Love Hina, i need to educate myself...!!!

Aah, if somebody voted for Love Hina i'll regret not voting for it, since two votes might be enough to get it in the list... Ai ai.

I think I submitted a fairly decent list. Still, I truly doubt I'll have anywhere near the success I did in the musicals thread.

Just as a heads-up for any stragglers, I've been on the road today and there's no way I'll finish tallying the last-minute entries real soon, so if you send in a ballot by midday tomorrow I'll certainly be able to include it.

P-Brain, I haven't added yours yet so your last revision will go in no problem.

Well, you folks have very nearly brought the spreadsheet, and my browser, to it's knees. Good job! You've nominated so many titles I had to add over a hundred rows to the template calculations.

Still going over things with a comb to try to handle overlaps and spelling differences and so-on. There will inevitably be some that fall through the cracks, mea culpa in advance.

Also while you people love your superheroes, you can't seem to agree on who writes them best (with some exceptions), so I'm definitely going to start the list by honorable-mentioning some character histories that had a ton of completely different books/authors/artists nominated. Look forward to it kicking off in a day or two.

Since your list is so short and simple I can sneak it in last-minute, but please see the DM I sent you ASAP to make sure I get it right.

Archie vs Sharknado would be better if it didn't exist.
