Okay ladies and germs....let's kick this "top books concept" up a notch!! Can we produce and agree on what the top 100 books of the silver age are to own?!?
Lemme set the why?! because it's my thread!!
Rules - 1) Marvel and DC are allowed (too bad if you don't like both!) 2) we'll use perceived value as the yardstick....so, based on your experience and perspective, what are the top books (of course dollar value typically plays a role) 3) I assume 99% of us will agree on the top 10-15, 75% will agree on top 25......but how many will agree on top 50, 75, 100? so to control the data a bit, the rule is just post your opinion in the following format (just copy, paste and fill in this following template.....I'll try to tally the responses in a coherent way)
These books belong in the top 100 - X - Y - Z - A
These books don't belong in the top 100 - X - Y - Z - A
I'll start with the list and (gimme a couple minutes) and let the games begin!!!

Way too much work involved...Your list looks fine by me except for that DC drek
Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life? Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair. Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life? Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women. Mongol General: That is good! That is good.
