  1. Daniel Langsdale on

    Since Jason asked:
    Indy Comic More Impacting on Culture than Scott Pilgrim: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (mentioned earlier in the podcast as a standard against which to weigh another title)

    Oni Press Before Scott Pilgrim: Whiteout/Queen & Country; Barry Ween, Boy Genius; Blue Monday (arguably, Scott Pilgrim wouldn’t even exist at Oni without Blue Monday.)

    My own top 5 (in no specific order & leaving out those mentioned in the podcast):

    Finder – Science Fiction World Building at its best

    Cerebus – 300 monthly issues independently created by one team is a feat that has not been matched. This is the Indy comic that a bunch of other 80s & 90s Indy comics wanted to be.

    Akiko on the Planet Smoo – just plain fun for all ages; somebody should put this back in print. (Scholastic? )

    The Tick by Ben Edlund – those original 12 issues may not be many, but they go oh-so-far into becoming classics of late 20th century comics & pop culture.

    Mouse Guard – beautiful, format-defying, and moving
