"You have voted; we have tallied the results; and come October and November, we will reveal to you the 100 GREATEST MARVEL COMICS OF ALL TIME, celebrating Marvel's 40-year history," said Director of Editorial Operations Bob Greenberger to a packed Comic-Con International crowd back in August.



And now, the time has come. The House of Ideas is releasing its series of trade paperbacks reprinting the GREATEST MARVEL COMICS OF ALL TIME based on reader input. Beginning with number 25 on the list, a volume of four stories will be released each week, counting down toward the voters' number one favorite. In November, the top five stories will be released as individual, weekly issues.



While all parties involved remained tight-lipped as to the winners, Marvel Comics has released a list counting down numbers 100 to 26. Did your favorite make the cut?
