DC's Top Ten from the 1980's

Hey party people, Masked Man here, with another list of comicbook fun! Now if you didn't know already, the 1980's was one of the best time for comicbooks. Marvel's X-Men was just killing it with iconic stories, smaller independent publishers were finally getting respect & fortune, and DC was going through a dramatic renaissance, that would change the medium forever! As the iron fist of the Comics Code was finally loosening. And the raging bull of creativity was finally being let loose! Unfortunately, most of the storytelling today, just seems to regurgitate stories and concepts from the 1980's- but I digress. So, I thought it would be cool to put together a list of the top ten books DC published in the 1980's. And I gotta tell ya, it wasn't easy! There was so much to choose from! With talent like Frank Miller, George Perez, John Byrne, Denys Cowan, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Marv Wolfman, Denny O'Neil, Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, Keith Giffen, Kevin Maguire, Adam Hughes, Brain Bolland, and on and on and on! Ugh! How does one choose!? Well, I'll let you hit play to find out (and I'm sure you're all dying to here my velvety smooth voice!). Then you can tell me how wrong I am bellow- Ah, comics!
