Eighties Black and White Comic Books (US):

To start, take a look at a few important titles that began before the '80s, with some that managed to continue beyond.

Most "Adult" titles are not listed here; those that are listed, are done so for their notoriety. This list is also aimed at original works, or notable reprints in comic book format. This is not a complete list yet, and I doubt it will ever be 100% accurate either, but I will endeavor to try. There are also a few UK titles that had major influences over in the States.

Would you like to see a list of publishers, too? That's a growing list.
