    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.

    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.

    And Watchmen is topping them all. That kinda surprises me, but with the movie having recently been released, not so surprising after all.

    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:
    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.

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

    That's what I'm doing, too. But my faves are probably all going to drop off by next round.
