    I've been thinking of suggestions most the weekend and I don't want to overhype any stories because they'll never be able to achieve the levels of anticipation.

    I think Batman: Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen deserve the hype they get though.

    I have enjoyed a few Batman stories: Batman: Long Halloween, Dark Victory, Year One, Hush, Killing Joke and Gotham by Gaslight, but I prefer Marvel. They've done some great story arcs recently starting with Planet Hulk, which lead to World War Hulk and Secret Invasion and finally Dark Reign.

    The comic series I've enjoyed following from those were The Mighty Avengers And Dark Avengers and The Invincible Iron Man. The Iron Man series have been brilliant, especially the beautifully drawn Extremis.

    Other ones I've really enjoyed have been The Walking Dead and Invincible by Robert Kirkman. Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing was really good and most of his stuff is good and he's an ex-2000AD writer.

    Punisher Max has been amazing. There's no superheroes in it, just Frank Castle taking down the mob in gruesome ways. Each story is about 6 issues long and although they follow each other, you don't have to read them in order.

    Anything drawn by Alex Ross is gorgeous. Marvels is great and so is Kingdom Come. I couldn't get into Earth X though.

    Mark Millar is a great writer and I've really enjoyed Wanted (very different from the film), Superman: Red Son, Kick Ass, Marvel 1985, Nemesis, Superior and Civil War. The first Marvel Zombies is great fun!

    Y-The Last Man, is a great apocalyptic tale that has a really great lead character and a gripping premise.

    The Authority is worth checking out for a different take on superheroes.

    The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
    is fantastic! The film has nothing on the book!

    The Sin City books are all brilliant. Great intertwining stories with unique artwork from Frank Miller. Ronin is another good 'un by him.

    Google "Top 10 Graphic Novels" to see what comes up, but there are some of the stories that have stood out for me over the years!

    This is quite an old site so it might not have the more recent stuff, but it has a lot of reviews of graphic novels:

    Try and just read the intro and ending to some of the longer reviews to avoid spoilers.

    Warren suffered a total hard drive disaster (and back up, and the chap he sent his machine to to have file recovery done died, and he never got it back). It killed off a novel he was on, and knocked back about 5 different ongoing series.

    Fell #10 has just been finished from his side though, so as soon as Templesmith has some time to draw it, we should finally be back on track

    Yes! At last, it's definitely a favourite of mine.

    Ha ha, well, that's many years' worth of reading!

    Usually I'm spurred on by threads and top 10 lists like this!

    Soundwave, did you ever read the Dreamwave G1 Transformers books? It was pretty good until Pat Lee decided to stop paying the freelancers...

    Good call on Alex Ross his painted artwork is awesome, can NEVER forget his Harley Quinn cover. I remember seeing the process of that in Wizard magazine and being fascinated by it and how much he references. Alex Ross and Joseph Linser became my favourite painted artists.
    Marvels and Kingdom Come are bothe fantastic reads, even though I like the Marvel universe I favoured Kingdom Come, it really was epic.

    And not a moment wasted there...wish I'd never really got out of the hobby, I feel so far behind the times it's hard to know where to pick up from again.

    I have indeed read everything that Dreamwave put out based on G1...I was a TF comic whore for a long time
    Absolutely loved it, the writing was good & the art out of this world.
    Shame like you said that Pat decided to stop the freelance.

    Just out of curiosity QC have you had any experience with the new Batman & Robin series??
    Looks pretty interesting.
