The Best of ’07 courtesy of Dick Hyacinth

Dick Hyacinth has finally compiled the 100 best reviewed comics of last year using a weighted chart. There was a preliminary list, but this takes The Comics Journal picks into account. The top 10:

1. Exit Wounds (1085)
2. Shortcomings (941)
3. All Star Superman (908)
4. I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets (850)
5. Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together (660)
6. Criminal (640)
7. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 (541)
8. Alias the Cat (452)
9. Perry Bible Fellowship: The Trial of Colonel Sweeto (444)
10. Powr Mastrs (439)

Hyacinth has commentary in the link and the list has sollid choices top to bottom. Honestly, now, is this a golden era for comics or what?

    A Golden Age is usually perceived in retrospection, usually with longing, regret, remorse, and just enough irony to make you choke as you laugh and cry simultaneously. The caveat is that one does not look forward while lost in the past, and our dreams are “If Only I Had…” and not “What If I…”
    So, this is a Renaissance, as we learn from the past, think about today, and dream about the future. If we believe, if we strive, if we pioneer new frontiers, then the next Golden Age will be found in the morning sunrise, and not the evening dusk.

    (first post was lost to a server error. apologies if this appears more than once.)
    A Golden Age is usually perceived in retrospect. The nostalgia is usually mixed with longing, regret, remorse, and just enough irony to choke your laughter with tears. The caveat is that when one constantly looks back in memory, one does not see the challenges ahead. Instead of “What If I…”, the imagination is preoccupied with “If Only I Had Done…”
    We are in a Renaissance, as we study the past, ponder the present, and dream about the future. If we dream about the future, if we strive to achieve those dreams, if we pioneer new frontiers, then the next golden age will not be found in the orange dusk of twilight, but in the golden dawn of tomorrow’s sunrise.
