More Key Comic Books of 1977

To repeat the caveat I gave on main 1970’s page [which has links to see other years within the decade], the list you are about to see involves no judgment or pricing data, but rather simply ranks the universe of comics published in 1977 — by publishers other than Marvel or D.C. for this particular page — according to how many copies have passed through CGC’s doors to date, to tease out a list of more key comic books of 1977 — that’s it!

We should reveal key and otherwise interesting 1977 comics from this exercise, but we will not necessarily get an all-encompassing list. So without further ado, here below is a list of the top 50 most-submitted comics from publishers other than Marvel or D.C. from 1977 (the census numbers are as of year-end 2016). [Also see: top 50 Marvel comics of 1977; top 50 D.C. comics of 1977; all key comics from 1977 ].
