The Top 100 Comic Books Of A Lifetime, #35-26

Yes, it’s been a while! I know, I know! I’ve been busy. Let’s get right into it. Not fair to make you wait any longer. For more on this list recounting up to this point, click HERE! Just follow the links backwards. #35) Omega Men #26 My very limited experience with anything having to do with The Omega Men is entirely the Tom King mini-series … Continue reading The Top 100 Comic Books Of A Lifetime, #35-26

The Top 100 Comic Books Of A Lifetime, #36-40

Hey, I’m back on the Wizard Top 100 Single Issue Stories bike! Sorry for the delay, everyone. I’m going to get right into it, so here we go.

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime: #50-41

For earlier entries, click HERE! Let’s not kid ourselves: the first half of this list was underwhelming. Back in 2006, Wizard put together the list of the Top 100 single comic book issues of the previous two and a half decades–basically the best single issues of the 80’s, 90’s, and first half of the 2000’s. A lot of it… frankly didn’t hold up. There were … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime: #50-41

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime: #55-51

We have hit the halfway mark of this list as of this entry, having gotten through the bottom 50 comics on Wizard’s list of the Greatest Comics Single Issues From 1979-2006. Which, back in 2006, was considered a comic fan’s lifetime. We were all a lot younger then, folks. I was TWENTY-SIX. God! Was my lifetime supposed to be twenty-six years. Wizard did not have … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime: #55-51

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #60-56

We are ALMOST TO THE HALFWAY POINT! Keep making the climb with me, everyone! The last two segments of this list, covering #70-61, were pretty damn solid and full of entertaining books. Are we hitting a point where things won’t really feel questionable anymore? Let’s see! (And yes, I, too, question that what I said might just be foreshadowing) And to keep up on this … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #60-56

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #65-61

Wow, I’m still not even halfway through this list! Let’s keep going! For more of this series up to this point, start HERE and work your way backwards. #65. Avengers Annual #10 I feel like this story is less IMPORTANT (or even that good in particular) than it is just righting an egregious wrong. In Avengers #200, Jim Shooter wrote a tale of Carol Danvers … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #65-61

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #70-66

We’re back at the good ol’ Wizard list of the top 100 comic books from 1979 – 2006. For more in this series, click HERE! Let’s get into the next chunk… #70. Planetary: Night On Earth Warren Ellis is very much on of those “Oh man, why did YOU have to turn out to be a dick bag?” kind of guys. Planetary, like much of … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #70-66

Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #75-71

For more on the comics that have brought us to this point, click HERE. All right, we are into the second quarter of this list, which you will remember was Wizard Magazine’s Top 100 issues of a lifetime, assuming your lifetime was 1979-2006. There have been some… choices so far. I’m not entirely sure what was Wizard was going for with this list at times. … Continue reading Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #75-71

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, Part 5 (#80-76)

For more on this series up to this point, click HERE! #80. Preacher #50 The second of what I’m sure will be at least a few more Preacher books on this list–Wizard loved this book so damn hard–I was surprised by how much I liked the previous offering. I distinctly recall not having liked Preacher much when it was being published. And this issue has … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, Part 5 (#80-76)

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime Part 4 (#85-81)

For more on this countdown so far, check out: #100-#96! #95-#91! #90-#86! On with the list: #85. Robin #46 Hey, I loved this title. Robin was the first DC book I ever started buying monthly (though that distinction is not truly amazing; it was very quickly followed up by The Flash, Green Lantern, JLA, and a few others in my college days). The years have … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime Part 4 (#85-81)

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime: Part 2

Welcome back to THE TOP 100 COMICS OF A LIFETIME (assuming you only lived to be, like, 27 or so and died 15 years ago)! In this series, we cover Wizard Magazine’s Top 100 Single Issues list that covered the timeframe of 1979 to 2006. Previously, we went over #100-96 to see what barely made the cut to round out the list. We’re still in … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime: Part 2

Fifteen Years Later: The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, part 1

I have a feeling–I can’t substantiate it, but I somehow guess–that I still think I’m, like, twenty-six years old or so. Like, if you walked up to me and said “DON’T THINK, JUST ANSWER! HOW OLD ARE YOU?”, I would instinctively say a number in the 20’s. I’m not sure why that is. I am assuredly not in my twenty’s. I turned forty several months … Continue reading Fifteen Years Later: The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, part 1
