Comics Make Headlines, Draw Top Dollar

This week Wired offers their reader-selected top comics list. It’s a great round-up and includes the cover of each selection:
When we posted a gallery of comics cover art drawn from Tony Isabella’s 1000 Comic Books You Must Read, some readers got pretty riled up about excluded titles.

It was just supposed to be a sampling, people: We obviously couldn’t include all 1,000 of the titles in Isabella’s cool book. Nevertheless, readers’ comics picks proved pretty fascinating.
Meanwhile, the “holy grail of comic books” made big news last week when a copy of Action Comics #1, the comic that introduced superman to the world, brought an unexpected million dollars. Fifteen years ago, the same copy of the same copy fetched $150,000. That story is here. The Wired round-up is here.
