This is the toughest bracket for me. I ended up voting for The Dark Knight Returns, but it was between this and 300, both Miller books.

04-24-2009, 03:37 PM
I still need to read The Dark Knight Returns, but i've gotta say this one was a tough choice, since i LOVE The Long Halloween. In the end, though, I just had to go along with Watchmen, that comic really did blow me away!

ANNOUNCEMENT : I hate Pam and Sam for making me choose between my two most favorite GN's ever. Just putting that out there. <_<

I haven't cast my vote yet, I'll need to meditate on this for a looooooooooooooong time.

04-24-2009, 05:18 PM
then i won't tell you what i voted for, as i don't want to influence you.

Feev - Please hate The Hat: Version 2.3 which was the bastard program that did the random picking for me !!!

04-24-2009, 05:25 PM
Don't hate the pimp, hate The Hat.

04-24-2009, 05:27 PM
The damage is done, it's too late for apologies! :nope:

04-25-2009, 03:09 PM
Bump. We need your votes!!:D

04-25-2009, 03:28 PM
Watchmen. As Pop Will Eat Itself so wisely sang, "Alan Moore knows the score!"

04-25-2009, 03:46 PM
300 has more votes than TDKR?!?


04-25-2009, 06:51 PM
And Watchmen is topping them all. That kinda surprises me, but with the movie having recently been released, not so surprising after all.

04-26-2009, 04:28 AM
Watchmen is great... I am not surprised at that at all. Alan Moore.

I haven't read all of these, so I don't think it's fair I vote.

Of the 4 I have read I suppose it would either be Watchmen or Dark Knight returns I'd go for. I read 300 recently, and while the art was interesting it really wasn't a big deal to me otherwise.

Brainslinger - I would say vote. Your opinion is just as valuable as the next. If you've read some of these and think they're good - vote for them. It's all about participation.

re: 300 - it is a visual masterpiece, for sure.

Ok, as long as you don't mind the fact I'm biassed. ;)

It'll be either Watchmen or the Dark Knight for me then. I wasn't over keen on the first when I read it , but it was a long time ago, and I suspect my reaction would be different now.

I prefferred the Dark Knight when I read it (relatively recently) but I think Watchmen is a more landmark comic...

Ho, hummmm.....

Watchmen spoiler:
I think it was the bleak ending which coloured my negative view of Watchmen at the time rather than finding the story intrinsically bad. I thoroughly enjoyed the film version I saw recently, and I know that the story changed very little.

Watchmen it is.

04-26-2009, 08:30 AM
Hey, we live for the biased !!

Look at feev, he doesn't even read all the titles, just does a search for Dark Knight!

04-26-2009, 08:45 AM
That is SO true.:lol:

I might vote Watchmen from here on in. All the books I voted for in the first round seem to be failing.

04-28-2009, 03:12 AM
Personally, I'm voting with my heart until my fav's are dropped or out voted, etc.

04-28-2009, 03:16 AM
That's what I'm doing, too. But my faves are probably all going to drop off by next round.

04-28-2009, 03:18 AM
Well... Maus and Dark Phoenix are my favorites... and those hopefully will pass through to the second...

... thing is, we got a a LOT of really good nominations so every bracket is killing me!
