@movieartman I wasn't offended or anything; his dinosaurs are better than Steve Bisette's, comparable to Art Adams', and Zombie King most hilarious, underrated romp in comicdom. Liberty Meadows=awesome sauce. BUT! His women are all Frank Frazetta babes for the new millennium, no matter how you dress them up. My comments about J. Scott Campbell were based on his tighter than Fred Phelp's clenched cheeks clothes, not his figures. I agree that their art looks nothing alike. Read for context and have a cookie.

All women in my world look as though Frank Cho pooped them out and J. Scott Campbell clothed them in thong-sized denim (which looks really uncomfortable) and perpetually wet-looking t-shirts. Just keep their scandalous ankles hidden, and I have no complaints.

This meme makes me want to buy a camera.

@nothing2lose: I can see both sides of it, but Marvel isn't solely culpable, and Hellblazer wasn't the best example. DC has underwent how many Crises since the original, each spinning off a new Titans book or setting the Justice League back to # 1? Sin City originally appeared in Dark Horse Presents, a serial within that anthology title, and so the first trade collected that story, with subsequent limited series being set in other avenues of that storyworld. Meanwhile, Hellboy did do that through the 90s and early 21st century, but now they are numbering the title and have taken those early l.s. into consideration.

However, the part of your argument I really appreciate is the fear of a creative team being replaced by a new one with the new numbering. I don't think the numbers detract from the content, as you say, but I also hate sitting on pins and needles, hoping that the excellent writer or artist who drew me to a title in one run will be on hand for the next.

Also, I agree with your praise. That is very thoughtful, @peppeyhare.

@madeinbangladesh: Yeah, I'm not interested in the innards, but I agree. I'd like that as a poster o t-shirt.

Also, @grenadeflow, sure, the creative team creates the storyworld, but fan interest drives the sales which keeps them in print.

The Dark Knight and Watchmen were both transformative for the industry, and V for Vendetta is a strong graphic novel, but I wouldn't call any of these selections the best. Alan Moore and Frank Miller are both excellent storytellers, and I will never forget reading any of these the first time. I dunno if I'm qualified to offer the best ever. For me, I suppose, The Killing Joke demonstrated comics were no longer just a child's medium, and the marriage of art and story completely held my attention unlike any comic before it.
