The Best Comic Books Ever Written

Each person has in their head. What are the best comics in history and everyone has their reason? Although there are always quality standards in art, it is clear that several very different aspects influence the comic, such as script, drawing, inking, and color. It is generally different authors who deal with each of these sections, although in some cases there is a complete author figure who narrates the story with his scripts and drawings.

It is challenging to say what works you have liked most, often depending on the moment, your mood and the time when they were made. Sometimes the influence of that work is also valued, or in second readings it may gain a lot of bodies. I have dared to make a top 10 of the best comics that have been published of all time.
