Everything above this post represents the results of a later ranking (done in Nov 2006), everything below is done on the basis of information from 2005 or older.

The Latest analysis includes points from 5 different "Top 100" graphic novels articles, plus Harvey/Eisner award winners, plus points for mentions on 7 different graphic novel review websites. I have merged into this 50 current Amazon "Best/Great Graphic Novel/Comics" lists. This eclectic mixture should give a balanced view of the most popular/best graphic novels/comics/illustrated books ever.

Its not a perfect method, but it certainly does produce some interesting results and a list you cannot really go wrong with. These are fantastic reads and are ideal for convincing anyone that "comics are for kids" that they might not be right!

Nowhere on your list do you mention any of Matt Wagner's Grendel stuff. Personally, I found Grendel: Devil's Legacy to be one of the most artistic and powerful graphic novels ever. The Pander Bros. artwork is amazing (for its time; I read it in its original monthly incarnation), especially chapter 9, which has virtually no dialogue, but for the first and last frames.

I found a copy of the Walking Man by Jiro Taniguchi on UK eBay –

It’s only $40 at the moment. Everywhere else I’ve looked this is way over $100. Thought I’d let your readers know in the likelihood that someone is interested. I already have a copy, that’s why I’m being generous with the tip-off ;)

Keep up the good work!
