ok thought i'd start this topic because i love reading good quality comics and graphic novels and i just wanna read all the great stories, im like galactus with his never ending hunger! So whats some

Preacher and Batman are wicked. Love Miller's work in general - the darker Elektra tales are a wicked twist on the Daredevil verse. I'm more a Marvel than a DC girl (don't hate me <if that's possi

Fables is astounding, simply one of the best comics ever. That said, almost anything by Bill Willingham is worth a look.

Ultimates. The whole damn series. Its one of my favourite series of all time, especially Homeland Security (It is the only time reading a comic made me feel like I was watching a huge summer blockbuster in the cinema) and the full whack of Ultimates 2 (Gods & Monsters and the STILL running Grand Theft America) was very intense, leading up to the current invasion of the US. Fair enough, the series has had a lot of problems with release schedules (#12 came out the week of Collectormania 10, #13 is currently lined up for the week of C11!!!), but its worth it!

 

Mark Millars run on Marvel Knights: Spiderman was awesome, running from the first book Down Among The Dead Men, through Venomous and ending with The Last Stand. Kicking off when an unknown villain kidnaps Aunt May, Peter is run ragged through all his rogues gallery, from Electro and The Vulture, to Doc Ock and a NEW Venom...

 

The Knightfall trilogy in Batman was awesome as well, seeing Bane how he should be seen, as opposed to tha damn awful Batman and Robin version.

 

Watchmen is a must read for any serious comic fan.

X-23: Target X

Oh, definately! Good call, man.

I have been with X-23 since her X-Men: Evolution appearance, but didn't think that she would work in the comic world, but she SO does! It is very, very cool. The letter writing kind of script is very nice... It reminds me why I loved Wolverine: Origin so much. I'm writing one of my issues like that... It wont be half as good, though... Obviously.

Watchmen is an obvious for this list though its already been mentioned, just thought I'd reitterate the point.

I'm also a huge fan of Brian Azzarello's Joker, I thought it was an amazing combination of writing and artwork, on top of that I loved Marvel's Civil War though I'm not sure if that's a popular choice.

I would also recommend Cable and Deadpool and Joss Whedon's X-Men

Surprised nobody has mentioned the current Invincible Iron Man series, it's absolutely brilliant, great writing and a load of really nice artwork (AND #25 coming out soon has a lot of sweet variant covers to coincide with the new movie, including this awesome foil cover to launch the new suit http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_oHqRVzerLLY/S0dH...n+man+armor.jpg :D )

The rebooted of sorts ULTIMATE Marvel titles are excellent. It is definitely a case of reading more than one in a session of comic reading. Very addictive. Story lines are excellent. Graphics are top notch.
