Joe the Barbarian was 2010-2011.

In my mind, everything I've just mentioned seems like a 2008-09 vintage for some reason.

i wish there were more good horror books this decade, though I guess there were some horror elements to a lot of the runs already mentioned

Knew there was some GM thing I was forgetting.

There are a few Spurrier books I’d consider. X-Men Legacy, The Spire, Six-Gun Gorilla, Numbercruncher. Haven’t read the last of Coda yet, but probably that.

My favorites:

All of Inio Asano's stuff, but especially Goodnight Punpun
All of Michael DeForge's stuff
Fraction's Hawkeye
Mind MGMT
Beautiful Darkness
Brecht Evens' Panther
Zero
Weirdworld

For some reason I never finished Prophet, but it should probably be on there. And Chris Ware's Rusty Brown comes out this month, so probably that too.

i just read sara, his russian she-snipers killing nazis book with epting (not my kind of setting at all), and found it very impressive storytelling, jumping between timelines in the most natural manner and surprisingly subtle psychology ...

also my older boy brought the first tpb of king's vision from the library, which i'd never managed to engage with electronically, but on paper i was immediately hooked, despite the german dub ... or maybe because of it, it sounds completely different, less smart-ass, more old fashioned literary (unfortunately they don't have the 2nd vol).

I don't know. I think the crossover really damaged even those first issues few issues of Animal Man for me. It just completely ruined the momentum of the book and made me feel like it was all just wasted potential. I kinda prefer his moon knight run now tbh.

almost everything Snyder has done has aged incredibly poorly. swampy is not exception. I don't really think it holds up like at all. snyder does have a place in this conversation tho and it's Black Mirror. I don't think he's ever topped or even really come close to that level ever since.

don't get me wrong i'd read the absolute shit out of a morrison shazam comic. society was decent but very minor and the maps/little league was a pretty decent gimmick, but i just don't think it merits the whole work a place on the list.

that said pax americana is quite possibly my favorite the decade soooo

I will forever stan for The Unbelievable Gwenpool as being an out of nowhere, shouldn't be good, somehow kinda great comic. I resented the idea of the character when first announced but it ended up a surreal, truly funny and clever book, which could hit notes it had no business touching. The art was, while not spectacular in most ways, extremely well suited and able to keep up with some real weird, complicated asks.

The new mini they just started is bad and what I was worried about, through one issue and it bums me out. Different creative team that seems to think they should way overdo the stuff that they kept special and used as needed and it's just a clusterfuck. Hoping it improves on issue 2 because the previous series makes me want to keep the character in circulation but... yikes - a worst instincts sort of Deadpool comic in issue one.

But yeah, that series is great and it takes a minute to get to the real weird shit but even from the start has a premise that powers it through to that point, really compellingly. I would legitimately compare it with Morrison Animal Man, which is probably ultimately an unflattering comp because that's a really high bar, but it has some definite similarities.

The crossover totally ruined Swamp Thing - the whole book was essentially building up to what ended up being a truly shitty climax. It hurt Animal Man’s momentum, but it didn’t completely derail it. (I don’t think Lemire’s books ever have much momentum anyway.) The last few arcs were pretty bleak, but purposefully so. I’d consider re-reading it whereas if I ever open an issue of Snyder’s Swamp Thing again it would only be to look at the Paquette art.

Lemire’s Moon Knight is probably his best book for Marvel or DC, but Greg Smallwood deserves a lot of the credit there.

Did The Wake ever go anywhere? I remember liking the first couple of issues for Murphy alone but definitely did not keep up with the remainder.

Second half of The Wake was awful. Sean Murphy has really been on a run of bad books for a while.

I liked Wytches well enough. Was the second part of that published in some Image magazine or something?

I think the first half of the wake is pretty solid, but it end of it was just pretty damn bad and felt unearned.

yeah smallwood's the real star of that moon knight run. honestly, now that i think about it i think foreman leaving animal man took a lot of my enjoyment away from the title. it happened right around the time of the crossover iirc.

pugh ain't bad by any means but that change, along with the crossover killed a lot of my enjoyment of the book. edit - to the point where i'm probably being unfair of the rest of the run.

The Wake was great fun if you just completely stop reading at the halfway point and pretend that’s the end. Wytches was not bad. Snyder should do more of that kind of straight up creepy horror. Remember Severed? Also fun.

It’s really hard for me to recapture my excitement at early Lemire/Foreman Animal Man but damn, that seemed like the best possible book at the time. Foreman leaving and the dragging crossover garbage made it so I doubt I’d even consider it for a list like this but I bet the first dozen issues or so still hold up real well.

Lemire Moon Knight was very good. He leaned heavy on his artists but the concepts were cool and the art was great, especially when they started assigning different artists to the different MK personae.

New 52 seems like an entirely different age now and most of those titles were clearly Not Good even in the moment, but the weekly wave of Wonder Woman, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Dial H, Action Comics, etc.*, was exciting for a brief second.

Yea it was except I can't stand Clay Mann. There's something so slick and empty in his art. Wish he didn't do so many of these Bat/Cat issues because this ruled otherwise.
