Oh....Yeah, this is going to take forever! Especially with, conceivably 20 people playing, in which we can all override each others votes.

I haven't read all these books.

 

Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, +2 points = 12 points

Dark Knight Returns, +1 point = 11 points

 

Maus, -1 point = 9 points

Crisis on Infinite Earths 10-2=8-2=6 points

 

Well, dammit! See? I have to edit because Trace made changes before me!

Marvels, personally should be replaced by Earth X Trilogy or Kingdom-Not-Quite-Twilight-Come.

Glad to see someone standing up for it.

 

It's a long way from being the best book on that list, but there are several others which deserve to be eliminated first.

 

The only one I haven't read is Like A Velvet Glove Cast In Iron, incidentally. Should I be checking it out?

Yep, Velvet Glove is Clowes. I have mixed feelings about him - he's technically brilliant, and some of his work blows me away, but some of what I've read from him has left me very cold.

True, but based on the one that was chosen, there's no way it should be doing as well as it is. Are people voting for it as a proxy for Sandman as a whole, or what?

I have to admit I do not particuarly care for volume one either but just chose it based on it's importance to the Vertigo platform.
