Double entry today... if anyone reading this is a Hellboy fan, maybe you can take a crack at a better Mignola Hellboy reading list. I have never read it (shame on me), and found the web of collections and re-issues tough to unravel on Comicvine.

40. Los Bros Hernandez’s Love and Rockets – 231 points (8 first place votes)
Love and Rockets #1-50, Love and Rockets Vol. 2 #1-20, Love and Rockets: New Stories #1-current (#5)

39. Mike Mignola’s Hellboy – 247 points (6 first place votes)
Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1-4 in 1995, then lots of mini-series ever since then.

38. Alan Moore’s Marvelman/Miracleman – 254 points (6 first place votes)
Warrior #1-21, Miracleman #7-16 (#1-6 reprinted the Warrior stories)
I can not find the Warrior books anywhere, so this list uses Miracleman #1-16

Hmm for me Invisibles number one and Transmetropolitan number two (Hard choice though)

Both would make great movies

In 2008 the #1 slot went to Sandman, and I think it'll repeat.
