    I wasn’t familiar with all of these series, but you definitely nailed the top 3. All three of those are awesome series! Who are also 3 of the best writers in comics period.

    Great list indeed, thanks for this.
    I’m a bit surprised Will Eisner’s Spirit is missing, even if it’s hard comic to categorize.
    I’m a huge fan of Gotham Central, even better than 100 bullets which kind of lost its storyline along the way..
    I never read Torso so i’ll check it, thanks.

    I would also add Brubaker’s Criminal, not his best work but still really entertaining, and maybe Incognito.
    Also, i’m a big fan of Brubaker’s Point Blank / Sleeper which are, technically superhero stories but still border on crime stories.

    I’d have to add Maze Agency to this, too. A great detective series done by Mike Barr that had a short run back in the late eighties and early nineties.

    I have just finished 100 Bullets, and I loved it. Except the ending. I was very dissapointed in the ending. But the art and the story telling throughout was fabulous.

    Is Gotham Central that good? I have been thinking about reading it.
