Good lord. Is that every ongoing DC comic ever published? I don't even want to ask how long it took to do this. Get a source on the game and it can probably be nominated.

Why are Preacher, Shade the Changing Man and Books of Magic not on the list? Are you leaving out Vertigo titles? Otherwise, this is a very interesting and difficult quiz.

Yeah, this is basically just "name every DC title you can think of ever," not "name the longest running."

The Adventures of
Martin and Jerry Lewis? I think that might be Dean Martin.
Some weird groupings in here. There are separate entries for Titans, Teen Titans, New Teen Titans and even New Titans, and God knows how many variations on the Justice League, but The Outsiders is listed while Batman and the Outsiders, which ran longer, is not.
I really think this is a "longest running" list, since some short lived series like "Hawk & Dove" aren't listed. But I'd sure like to see a source and an issue count before giving it 5 stars.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. For the record this is only Titles that ran 30 issues or more. That's only about a third of all the DC comics ever published. Good spot on Dean Martin, I've corrected that. Also added a disclaimer about Vertigo and the other imprints. (For the record Sandman and Hellblazer both ran for more than 30 issues before Vertigo was created.) As for the groupings, fair point that's debateable but there was only ever one Outsiders book at a time while the Titans and Justice League books ran concurrently.

Added my Source, now. Also about 15 more comics as I decided to count the Cartoon Network titles as core DC rather than as a Wildstorm/Vertigo style Imprint. Thoughts?

This is a really excellent quiz, and very hard... I think I did well, and I still got just less then 100. My only quibbles are having to name variations on titles, such as the Titans; I was surprised when I was done that I hadn't gotten them. Also, if the pre-Vertigo series are being listed, then shouldn't Shade the Changing Man be included? I believe it was in the thirties when the book began.
Aug 24th, 2010 at 04:39 GMT
Good spot, mate. Yeah, Shade was at 33 when Vertigo started. Been added.

Steel is missing, the one about the armored Superman ally. It ran 53 issues. Also, Books of Magic, the initial mini anyway, came out under the DC imprint, so I don't know if that gets it in under the wire. I would also say something about the Cartoon Network books being counted, as I would never think they would be if Vertigo isn't, as they are no more attached to the main DCU.

JLA Classified is also missing
Mar 11th, 2011 at 17:09 GMT
You missed Gang Busters, which ran 87 issues between 1947 and 1959.

I'd love to see the number of issues, too. Great quiz.
