Another CBR Top Ten, this one purports to list the “most important” Eisner Award-winning comic books.
Since 1988, the Eisner Awards have set the standard for widespread, critical recognition in the comics industry. In the 35 years since then, the Eisners have spotlighted dozens of artists, writers, and titles that stand on their own as testaments to the kind of stories the comic book medium can convey and the impact those tales have had on the wider world of pop culture, and the latest awards celebration was no different.
I have read 6 of the 10 choices and can recommend them, some more highly (the second tier) than others.
A very quick glance at all the Eisner winners over the years finds some I may have chosen as important.
