Comic Book Series I Have Read (Or At Least Owned) In Their Entirety

In the spirit of my ongoing effort to remember and identify  every TV series I've ever seen it in its entirety, this is an attempt to do the same thing for comic book series. This initial attempt is based solely on memory; eventually, I'll have a look at Overstreet listings to see what additions might seem appropriate.

The list is for series that were originally announced as ongoing; I'm arbitrarily excluding titles that were billed as mini-series. It's an unfair distinction, allowing Gold Key Comics' cancelled-after-two-issues series based on the '60s TV version of The Green Hornet, but snubbing deliberately-finite runs like the twelve-issue Crisis On Infinite Earths and any of AHOY Comics' many, many fine books. Nonetheless, it's a distinction I'm stickin' with for now.

I'm also skipping series I read in collected editions. Each of the series listed below is something I read and/or owned in the original serial form, whether fresh off the racks or plucked out of the back issue bins.

And I'm not under oath here. I can't guarantee that I read every single issue of American Flagg!, DNAgents, Nexus, or Plop!, but I'm (pretty) sure I did. All-Star Squadron is omitted because I do remember bailing on the series at some point, and I don't believe I ever got around to reading the issues I missed.
