Some notes: I decided for the purposes of this list to count choices which might be considered a subset of another choice as individual without grouping them. So a vote for the entirety of “Saga of the Swamp Thing,” for example, would not also count as a vote for “Saga of the Swamp Thing by Alan Moore,” who only wrote part of that series.

Also, I’m only counting TheBatgirlOfNML’s 6 nominations of Batman: No Man’s Land as one nomination. Sorry BG.

So, what do we learn from this? We learn that our most active community members will probably suggest Batman: The Long Halloween as the best starting point on DC’s most popular character. We learn that Cassandra Cain is the best Batgirl. We learn Greg Rucka is the GOAT, 52 is the greatest Event Comic ever published, and you should probably be reading Hawkman.

Mostly, though, we learn our community has pretty good taste.

This is fascinating! I have to confess to recommending The Long Halloween myself! And while I love it, I didn’t realize how popular DC: The New Frontier was!

I’m just seeing this thread now. That is fair, but hear me out, I actually hid a seventh recommendation for NML in there using html notes (Jitsu may not have copied it, I didn’t check).

Can we call it learning if we already knew?
