The Chuckling Whatsit by Richard Sala is my #1, it ruined comics for me, every comic ever written pales in comparison to it for me

Overall you have some good picks but I don't like how you have some series listed like Hellboy and also have individual TPBs of story arcs from other series.

You should change the list to "The Best american/english Graphic Novels Ever". Did you even mention five non-english books there?

Thanks for posting this list. As someone who has never read or purchased a graphic novel before, I appreciate an insider's insight. It makes giving a Graphic Novel as a gift much easier. Thanks again!

In my eye's Alan Moore is one of the greatest writers of all time. You can't give him enough credit!

Anonymous: Thanks for the recommendation of Richard Sala's The Chuckling Whatsit. I have been looking to purchase a book by Sala. I feel the same way about Daytripper by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba. Once I read that, all other graphic novels have seemed weak in story. Speaking of this, that's the problem with massive "top 100" lists like this: they usually go by volume of sales and general exposure and rarely include obscure titles that are actually excellent. They just haven't been discovered by the general population.
