Blogger Hunter Phillips has assembled a “Definitive” Best of the ’00s comics list by toting up the published “Best of” lists:
• Compiled from over 60 “Best of the Decade” lists.
• Only those books that made at least 5 lists are included on the master list. Organized by number of mentions.
• Limited to comics books and graphic novels released between 2000-2009. 38 comics in all.
The #1 book, with 24 picks, Is Y the Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, followed, in the top 10 by
ALL STAR SUPERMAN
Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely – DC
Bryan Lee O’Malley – Oni
Craig Thompson – Top Shelf
Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Lan Medina – Vertigo
Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting, Mike Perkins, Michael Lark – Marvel
THE WALKING DEAD
Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn – Image
Warren Ellis, John Cassaday – Wildstorm
FUN HOME: A FAMILY TRAGICOMIC (11)
Alison Bechdel – Houghton Mifflin
Mark Millar, Bryan Hitch, Steve Dillon – Marvel
Charles Burns – Pantheon
Several of the usual suspects appear further down the list.
The list is perhaps a bit surprisingly mainstream — no Jason, no Seth? — and manga oblivious, so you indie/manga guys and gals better get out there and make those lists! This isn’t over yet!
