I'd like to see Superior Foes of Spider-Man make the list. Oh, and 52. Obviously.

I haven't read nearly everything on here, so no idea what to take off.

But it included three of my favorites ever (Kingdom Come, Vision, and Long Halloween), not to mention Hellboy in Hell and others, so... I'm good.

I'd like to see BPRD on that list but having Hellboy in Hell on there already feels like it would be too much. Though I never read Hellboy in Hell if it's close to as good as BPRD then I think I'll really enjoy it.

Holy shit that top 10 is DC heavy.  And hell Uber, Santa Klaus, even the Predator/Aliens should have been here.  No fucking Conan at all on this list.  How the fuck do you have a list without Conan. Could honestly, have thrown glitter bomb on here also. Powers, and White out would have been good here.

what would you drop to fit all those on? They have some amazing titles on that list and the ones you've picked may be great but I'm not super familiar with most of them to never heard of a couple...not that I'm familiar with every pick of theirs either.

Of the top 10, only one book really interests me, New Frontier.
I can pass on the rest without feeling i'm missing much TBH.
There's a lot of non big two books that have been overlooked i think.
Like Rocket Girl, Shutter, Ghosted, American Way...

FYI guys they didn't rank them from best on down, that's an alphabetical listing. Technically there is no top 10 on that list.

On that list there's 8 I haven't read either. 

The one's I've read that I would remove are 1. All -star superman, 4. Batman, 6. The Long Halloween, 8 Black Panther, 20 Vision remove, 24 remove.  Il give an expanded explanation on the why.  Even deadpool: The good , the bad, and the ugly is a good candidate for removal.  And I love deadpool.

The seven I feel totally deserve it:
All Star Superman
Batman Long Halloween
Hawkeye: Life as a Weapon
New Frontier (best one on the list IMO)
Kingdom Come (2nd best?)
Planetary
Vision (the little I've read of it)

Everything else I either haven't read enough or don't care for enough. I agree with them that DC has put out a lot of great stuff and deserves the love.

Things I think that I might include--

Fables
Ex Machina
B.P.R.D.

Those would be the first 3, then any and all of the following Marvel titles, and drop maybe Annihilation Conquest and Planet Hulk

Iron Fist (Brubaker & Fraction's run)
Daredevil (Bendis' run... yeah that's right)
Ultimate FF (first two writers anyway)
Astonishing X-Men
Earth X
Uncanny X-Factor
Kid Loki
Captain Britain & MI:13

^^^Fables. Damn fine inclusion.

Going by those first 10 books again, i'm in line with dlb.
All -star superman
Batman
The Long Halloween
Black Panther
Vision
Deadpool

That would free up a lot of space right there.

Was thinking the same re: Batman.
I get there's a lot of material to choose from. Pick one, leave room for other books.
This isnt a 'my favorite 25 books', its supposed to be more...inclusive? Objective?

If you look at the list  Birds of Prey is Batman adjacent and many ppl say Black Panther is basically Marvel Batman.  So it kinda like you have 4 bat books on the list.  And I'm a big fan of Gail Simon's BoP and Priest BP runs.
