Best Comics of the 2010s (Voting for Board List)

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Is there enough interest for this here? I know there's a small crew of us dedicated comics people and others who read some. Let's all vote - I'm happy to tabulate and put together a list.

Let's say lists of up to 20, but feel free to submit 5 or 10 or whatever. Top pick will get 20 pts if you submit 20, 10 pts if you submit 10, etc. Same rules as the music list threads otherwise - please submit one list and edit as many times as you want instead of doing multiple posts with lists.

Nice! I feel like Silver Surfer will be a lock for the board list. Patience was real good too.

I’m putting together a ridiculous long list for myself to edit down.

can "the zines of" count as a title? julia gfrörer's solo zines would def make my top ten, but it'd be silly to try and pick one ... and she'd have no chance of appearing on the final list (where she belongs :-) )

Sure, why not? Flesh and Bone and Too Dark To See were definitely among the ~50 things I feel like should be in my top 20, combining them and her other zines this decade makes a lot of sense.

I enjoyed the following, but again it's not like I'm widely read in the last 10 years:

Prophet
Saga
Moon Knight - Ellis run or Lemire run
East of West
Lumberjanes (my daughter's current obsession)
Hawkeye - Fraction
She-Hulk
Thor - Aaron
I enjoyed Slott's Amazing Spider-Man run for the most part
