If you legitimately don’t think you can think of ten stories, I’ll still allow the ballot if you can think of at least six stories.

Have fun voting and be sure to check back November 30h to see the results!


My favorite Garth Ennis story is from his run on HELLBLAZER. Dangerous Habits, and i dont say that because ethat story arc lays the ground work for the movie but after reading the trade paper back i got a really good look at Jonh Constantin’s Psychology. I could relate to him, i felt like he was Hank Moody of Californication except (Constantine) being a British wizard. I love how i can view who Constantine really is in that Arc : He always thinks of himself first, he never has a long lasting change, always ends up with more enemies, he tried to be a shinny superhero but ended up becoming a fuck up dancing with demons.

The Heartland one-shot better in the top ten. . .

The trouble with treating Preacher as a collection of seperate arcs is that it will push everything else out of the top ten.

I dunno Dean, I think his Punisher MAX run will stand toe-to-toe with Preacher.

Sigh, Ennis’s Demon run isn’t even mentioned in his listed works. That run never gets any respect.

I feel damned accomplished after getting an email out to Brian!
