Blogger Hunter Phillips has assembled a “Definitive” Best of the ’00s comics list by toting up the published “Best of” lists:

THE DETAILS:
• Compiled from over 60 “Best of the Decade” lists.
• Only those books that made at least 5 lists are included on the master list. Organized by number of mentions.
• Limited to comics books and graphic novels released between 2000-2009. 38 comics in all.


The #1 book, with 24 picks, Is Y the Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, followed, in the top 10 by

ALL STAR SUPERMAN
Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely – DC
SCOTT PILGRIM
Bryan Lee O’Malley – Oni
BLANKETS
Craig Thompson – Top Shelf
FABLES
Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Lan Medina – Vertigo
CAPTAIN AMERICA
Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting, Mike Perkins, Michael Lark – Marvel
THE WALKING DEAD
Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn – Image
PLANETARY
Warren Ellis, John Cassaday – Wildstorm
FUN HOME: A FAMILY TRAGICOMIC (11)
Alison Bechdel – Houghton Mifflin
THE ULTIMATES
Mark Millar, Bryan Hitch, Steve Dillon – Marvel
BLACK HOLE
Charles Burns – Pantheon


Several of the usual suspects appear further down the list.

The list is perhaps a bit surprisingly mainstream — no Jason, no Seth? — and manga oblivious, so you indie/manga guys and gals better get out there and make those lists! This isn’t over yet!

    While I was a bit surprised at the number of Marvel titles, there are quite a few alternative? independent? mainstream? titles on the list.

    The lack of manga possibly reflects the fact that many reviewers haven’t quite embraced or understood that category yet. Same with comics for younger readers. No “Arrival”? Shame…

  2. Kurt Vile says:

    the inclusion of ‘y – the last man’ is unfathomable.
    most of the characters in said book were women, yet it was drawn by an artist who drew women all exactly the same, except in different colors.
    it may as well have been an archie comic.
