This is something I’ve been wondering about: by what definition is this not a bookie operation?

I don’t drink coffee, but it’s my understanding that coffee prices have dropped recently. Maybe not so much at Starbucks, but still…

The Essential 10

Cidu Bill on Sep 20th 2015

Last week, we had a discussion here about whether a specific comic was iconic enough that most comic strip aficionados could be expected to have been familiar with it. Which made me think there should be a list of the most essential individual comics of the past century. And if not by us, then by whom?

So, what I’m asking you to do, between now and the end of October, is send your list — as few or as many as you’d like — to Essential10 at gmx.com. Only to that address, please. A description of the comic will probably suffice, because by definition it’s not going to be something very obscure.

Please feel free to invite others to send their choices.

For the record, I have 12 on my personal list, but I might think of more before the deadline.

The first week in November, I’ll compile a list of the 10 biggest vote-getters. I honestly expect The Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes to dominate the list, but we’ll see.

Please let’s not discuss your choices in the comments section of this post: there’ll be time for that in November. I’m keeping the comments section open in case anybody has questions.
