I think its going to be even harder for me. I can't see Crisis on Infinite Earths, Under Siege from Avengers, The Trigon saga from the Wolfman Perez Teen Titans, Cosmos in Collision from Quasar and Mark Gruenwald's masterpiece known as Captain America No More not making my list. That's going to leave five slots to represent the rest of my history as a reader and my views of comic book history.
Its not going to be an easy task.
Lost in Space-Time from West Coast Avengers
and Gruenwald's Squadron Supreme
failed to make your guaranteed list? That surprises me.
A top stories list could double or triple the size of the top runs list, I reckon. Just taking apart Claremont's Uncanny X-Men
you have #'s 95, 100-101, 102-103, 120-121, 125-128, 129-137 (possibly split into different issues), 141-142, 143, 150, 153, 162-166, 168-170, 172-173, 174-175 along with crossovers like Mutant Massacre, Inferno and X-Tinction Agenda. Perhaps a few of those stories would receive no votes but I believe at least ten Claremonts would snag a vote.
