10 Best Comic Book Series of DC

Let's get this out of the way first, so we can talk about this list. It's wrong. A top 10 DC list that does not include the Legion's Great Darkness Saga is wrong. It's difficult to fathom how one could write down such a list. Perhaps it's a joke. Perhaps the person took a blow to the head.

I agree that Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, Watchmen, and Sandman should be on it. All absolutely amazing.

I'm surprised to see The Return of Barry Allen on the list. I love it, but didn't know it was necessarily regarded so highly by others. The introduction of Max Mercury alone is worth it. But also a good story. And I think the difficulties of time travel are handled pretty well.

I haven't read the others, so don't know which of them is the best candidate to lose for the Legion. And I don't care how good Hush is, it's not a better Batman story than the other two.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
Watchmen
The Sandman
Wonder Woman: The Circle
Superman: Red Son
Green Lantern: Blackest Night
Batman: Year One
The Flash: The Return of Barry Allen
The Authority
Batman: Hush

I've not read the Wonder Woman.
I would swap Grant Morrison's All Star Superman for Ted Son.
I agree on the LSH needing to be on here.
Morrison's Doom Patrol and Animal Man are missing.

Yeah, All-Star Superman is kinda excellent!

I never read Doom Patrol or Animal Man regularly, but what I saw was great.

Any Grant Morrison is excellent.
His JLA was cosmic scale stuff.
His Batman embraced all their weird stuff.
His Batman Inc. Is a favorite.

I'm only a casual DC comic reader.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is awesome though.

Kingdom Come was fantastic.


And anything with Catwoman by Jim Balent. Shocked Very Happy

Can't imagine how difficult it would be to run and fight in that outfit, but I would sure like to watch her try.

Kingdom Come for sure.

Is Golden Age the one going on right now?
