It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these, but here we go. This week I will be talking about the top ten must read comic books. Many of these are very old, and all of them are classics. Enjoy!
10. Peanuts-Ah, good ol’ Charlie Brown and friends. There are many different collections out there, but my favorite is still the first edition from years ago. The early strips were a bit more risque, but still just as great as they were later on in life. Some of my favorites are the ones where Charlie Brown makes up plays to perform for his friends (he gets in trouble when he says he got the idea from Romeo and Juliet).
9. Calvin and Hobbes-It’s hard to believe that this strip is over 20 years old now. Bill Watterson must be a genius to have been able to come up with so much material for so long on two characters who never age (Calvin at least). Plus it was always funny, even on days when you couldn’t get anything done because you had the flu or something.
8. For Better or For Worse-And speaking of strips that never seem to quit (this one is close to 30 years old now), we have Lynn
What are the top ten must read comic books of all time? Well, that is a matter of opinion, but there are some that I would personally recommend. These are in no particular order.
The Adventures of Tintin by Georges Remi. The classic Adventures of Tintin were penned by Herge. They recount the adventures of a young reporter named Tintin who is always on the lookout for a good story to advance his career. He often finds trouble during his adventures and he has his faithful dog Snowy with him most of the time to help him out. The stories have been translated into more than 50 languages!
Tintin in America is the second book from this series and it was first published in 1931. It was first serialized in Le Petit Vingtieme from 1929-1930, and later published as a single volume book in 1931. The story follows Tintin who is on an assignment to report news about America for a Belgian newspaper when he gets entangled in a crime involving gangsters and kidnapping. He finds himself involved with criminals most wanted by the police as they try to get away from New York City with their loot and kidnap Snowy, who has been tracking them down while Tintin is held at gun
The large number of comic book characters, in all shapes and sizes, and with varying degrees of powers, abilities and experiences, makes it easy to get lost. In order to guide you through the comic book world, we have compiled a list of top ten must-read comic books, which will soon be followed by a list of ten more.
Titles on this list vary in their ranking because they represent different genres or types of comics. You can’t compare an adventure book with an espionage one or a comedy with a horror. However, all these titles are of high quality and deal with what many believe to be the most important aspects in comics: action, humor and suspense. The moment you start reading them you will forget about time and place, as if you have been sucked into their world…
– Action Comics 1 (1938)
– Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (1986)
– Daredevil: Born Again (1986)
– Watchmen (1986)
– Green Lantern/Green Arrow (1970)
– Hellboy: Seed Of Destruction (2004)
– New Frontier (2004)
– V for Vendetta (1988)
– The Sandman (1989)
– The Dark Knight
I have been a comic book fan, collector and reader for over 40 years. I have read thousands of comics, and hundreds of different titles. I also have had the opportunity to review a number of comic books for websites and print publications. I have also attended several Comic Cons, including one held in my home town of Baltimore Maryland.
A lot of great comic books are not on this list. This list is by no means complete or exhaustive. My apologies to The Fantastic Four, Spiderman and many others that deserved to be added, but were left out because there were too many great titles to include them all.
The criteria for inclusion on the list was based on the following:
1) Were the stories compelling? Did they involve interesting storylines with well developed characters?
2) Were the stories unique? Did they involve unique concepts or characters?
3) Was the writing well done? Were the stories told with skillful use of language?
4) Were the storylines timeless? Would they still be enjoyable today?
5) Was it important historically? Is it an influential title that has had an impact on the history of comics, or on pop culture in general?
6) Was it popular at the time it was published? Did it generate a lot
10. Chiaroscuro: The Private Lives of Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo
This is a semi comic book about the lives of two of the greatest artists in history. It portrays them as friends and rivals, not as famous for their art but for their personal lives. The story has a hint of romance, but it is more about their rivalry. It makes you appreciate Leonardo’s art more because you get to see him creating it in front of you and you get to see him being cool under pressure.
There are three stories in this book and they all intertwine with each other. The dialogue is well written and whoever wrote the story knows their history because they add interesting facts about the renaissance period here and there throughout the story.
11. Frankenstein: A Graphic Novel
If you love classic literature, this is one graphic novel that will not disappoint you. Mary Shelley’s original work was written in 1818 and it has been adapted into many different things over the years: movies, books, plays, etc. This is another adaptation that stays very true to the original work while adding visual elements to the story to keep it interesting for today’s audience.
12. The Death of Superman
This is another must read if you are a DC comics fan because
