I love Jimmy Corrigan! It'd be one of the last three if this was all up to me. I think there are only two books on this list better than Jimmy Corrigan.

 

Unfortunately, it's not....it's open to OTTERS! :biggrin:

If it were up to a certain otter, Blankets would be the last to go.

I'm curious, Abhi - have you actually read Elektra: Assassin, or are you just voting it down on the principle that it's an Elektra book? Because if you haven't read it, you really should, and if you have, I'm curious as to why you rate it lower than, say, Kraven's Last Hunt or The Dark Phoenix Saga.

Elektra:Assassin 1+2=3 (I have read it, the ending lets the rest of the fine book down, otherwise it would have been a Miller masterpiece to me. It's still better than quite a few titles up here)

Exactly - Assassin doesn't deserve to come close to winning this poll, but it's definitely a long way from the weakest book on the list, and I'd imagine Abhi would rather like it, even allowing for his general aversion to most superhero comics.

I'm voting down the books I havent read on this list simply because I can't bring myself to cut points from the rest (all of them being rather good). Along with the Spiderman comic and Box Office Poison, its the only thing on this list I havent read. I have only recently read the Dark Phoenix Saga and enjoyed it well enough. If you say Assassin is better than the Saga, perhaps I should give it a look, then. I'm on it.

As TestosteRohne says, the ending lets it down a bit, and certain elements have dated, but it's still one of Miller's more interesting books from that period. The Sienckiwicz art alone would make it a must-read, but it's not badly written either.

It was the best comic to come out of Marvel's short-lived Epic imprint.

I really love "Elektra:Assassin", although it was one of the weaker books I put on the list. It's far from a superhero comic also.
