I love that All-Star Superman is #3 on the list.
Well, that certainly deserves a spot on the Top 10 most ******ed lists.
I can't believe Marvel Zombies made it onto the list. I still haven't read it, but now I feel that I'm legally required to.
I started to get angry, then I noticed that this is for the best of 2007, not of all time. Still, those choices are terrible.
Yeah...that was a horrible, horrible list. I love Marvel Zombies as much as the next guy, but putting it on the list is like putting All Star Batman on the list, it's just missed the point entirely. And all but like, 3 of those were obviously just picked because they're "underground and hip and edgy" despite the fact that no one has ever f**king read any of them.
1. I love that two of their graphic novels are webcomics.
2. If they really loved webcomics they'd have thrown Sam and Fuzzy some joy.
3. LoEG III is out? Why was I not informed?
4. What, could nobody bother telling these people about Iron Fist?
5. I was going to say that Erfworld isn't even that good but then I would lose the chance to say that Erfworld isn't even finished, I'm okay with them filling out a graphic-novels list with a webcomic that is plainly intended to be read as a graphic novel but they could at least wait until the comic is done until they name it the "Best Of" anything.
6. Seriously though Erfworld isn't even that good.
Yeah, the Black Dossier has been out since November. It hasn't been that well advertised though. They probably thought it was a bit risky to advertise something that treads so carefully on so many copyright laws.
i haven't read any of those books, *sob*
What a rubbish list written by people who are too scared to delve into comics.
That list stinks, what the hell is "The Principles of Uncertainty?"
Naff list. Give me some Iron Fist and Ellis crack.
But, was Silent War released in TPB form this year? It was, wasn't it? Because, that'd be my favourite of the year. The artwork was beautiful.
I've read Jack of Fables. I don't even know if I'd put that on a top 10 list, though. Fables itself has consistently been much better, although Jack is still funnier.
^Agreed that Fables is waaay better than its spin-off, although I didn't read past the first arc. I will eventually, though
Also agreed that while I enjoyed MZ, it by no means deserves to be on this list. What's somewhat unfortunate is that it's the only Marvel title on the list, so they're saying that's the best thing Marvel has given us all year.
Why is Marvel Zombies on that list when the mini came out in 2005?
I'd assume that the trade came out sometime in 2006...
I think maybe the hardcover came out in 06 and the softcover in 07
That still shouldn't qualify it. Hell, isn't the second Marvel Zombies trade out by now?
The crossover with AoD?
::checks amazon:: yeah, came out in september
Doesn't that describe a good deal of non-superhero books though?
Nah, there's plenty of Vertigo titles, or books by big name creators like Miller, Moore, Gaiman, Bendis, Ennis, Ellis, etc. which are not super heroes but plenty of people of people know about. Plus MAUS, American Splendor, Ghost world, Road to Perdition, and so forth.
That list was limited.
Anybody else bothered by the whole pretentious aspect behind calling them "Graphic Novels"? Some qualify, and some don't.
Yeah, I hate it when people call anything related to comics, even single issues, graphic novels.
There are few works that actually qualify. A TPB is not a graphic novel.
That kind of annoyed me for a while, but I got over it. The general public calls them graphic novels pretty much across the board now, and they're not gonna change. "Trade paperback" is just part of our geeky comic jargon now.
