Has anyone mentioned Persepolis yet? I love the first one, and Persepolis 2 is pretty good to.

DC has a lot of great comics cause it's got such great iconic characters.

I pretty much recommend anything by

Alan Moore- Simply the best ever. Anything by him. His DC work is all incredible. I also recommend DR & Quinch and Miracleman.

Frank Miller (until 9/11-- afterwhich he goes a bit nutty and produces crap- his All Star Batman is awful). Batman: Year One is always re-readable and The Dark Knight Returns is brilliant, too-- although I think we're now approaching the time frame when it takes place).

Grant Morrison: Probably my second favorite comic book writer of all time-- Animal Man, Doom Patrol, the latest Batman run, Arkham Asylum-- he also did a great Batman mini called Gothic, and All-Star Superman is a great comic, too. his JLA stuff was very innovative too and still holds up.

Garth Ennis: Hellblazer, Preacher on the DC side-- Punisher on the Marvel. Just a great story teller with a wicked sense of humor.

Batman: Killing Joke

Morrison's got a new series out, too, a Justice League one called Final Crisis. It looks pretty good.

And I heard someone say once that Killing Joke was one of Moore's weakest work, which is weird because it's still good as hell.

Here are a few I have enjoyed lately:

The Seven Soldiers of Victory... orginally presented as 7 4 issue mini series' with bookend comics for a pro and epilogue, thye have been collected into four TPBs. These comics are so incredible cause as each series, they contain a full story, but with the other series, they become this giant all-encompassing story and the TPB contains the entire story, in chronological order.

The cool thing is they didn't use huge well known characters: Zatanna (from JLA), Klarion the Witch Boy(from The Demon), DC's Frankenstein (from Creature Commandos), the Guardian (from Superman) and others. Well written and a delight to look at by a variety of artists.

It would be remiss to not mention the Preacher either... 9 volumes of brilliant storytelling.

Check your inbox.

Anyhow I've been contemplating creating one, but thank you adidasss for digging it up.

I am a huge comic fan, both webcomics and paper back ones. I have to say I am a DC man over Marvel, however I mainly deal with Vertigo. My favourite comic series is Transmetropolitan followed by Fell and then Preacher. Transmetro and Fell are both written by Warren Ellis who I think is one of the best writers in years, the artwork for Transmetro is done by Darick Robertson and Ben Templesmith (of 30 Days of Night fame) does the artwork for Fell. Garth Ennis does the writing for Preacher and Steve Dillion does the artwork and I jsut gotta say this, it involves an Irish vampire, nuff said.

Most of the ones I'd suggest have already been posted - The Sandman, DC's Frankenstein, Sin City. If you're in for the long haul, it's always enjoyable to read as many X-Men books as possible. I was most recently impressed by Wolverine: The End - it's '03, but I hadn't read it. It's pretty good.

Definitely check out Marvel's Deadpool comics, he's probably one of the most enjoyable characters in the Marvel Universe if you're into wiseass mercenaries and gallows humor.

The Marvel Zombies comics were okay, it was the art that was most appealing in my opinion - but check 'em out, if only for that.

However, if you want to foray into the completely bizarre, check out Bob Burden's The Flaming Carrot. Spectacularly odd in the best way possible.
I see myself as an intelligent, sensitive human with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments.

I recently bought my first graphic novel. The Amory Wars: The Second Stage Turbine Blade, the comic that the lyrics of Coheed and Cambria are based off of.
It's astounding, really, that such a creative and progressive band can be based off of such bullocks.
