In September, ComicBookResources.com had their readers vote on the Top 100 Comic Book Runs of All-Time. This was the second such vote, with the first published in 2008. As the 2012 list gets published, I will update this thread with reading lists for each comic book run. In order to make the reading lists read better in the future, I am including future issues for current runs when the last issue has already been announced (e.g. Uncanny X-Force ending at #35).
