PostSubject: best comic books of all time   Thu Mar 10, 2011 5:30 pm

so i started compiling a list of my favorite comics for someone that asked for suggestions (on another forum), and i thought i would start a thread here to get some more opinions. here are some of my favorites:

DC:

  • all-star superman by morrison + quitely - loved this story. 12 issue series.
  • superman for all seasons by loeb + sale - self contained story. very good. 4 issue limited series.
  • batman: the long halloween by loeb + sale - must read. 13 issue series
  • batman: the killing joke by moore + bolland - sheer awesome. one shot (trade only?)
  • superman: for tomorrow by azzarello + lee - great story and some of my favorite dc artwork. 11 issues (Superman #204-215)
  • ...

not DC:

  • 100 bullets by azzarello + risso - each issue of this is a full course meal. truly epic. 100 issue series.
  • watchmen by moore + gibbons + higgins - if u haven't read it, u really really ought to. 12 issue series.
  • v for vendetta by moore + lloyd - if u haven't read it, u really really ought to. 10 issue series.
  • rising stars by straczynski - epic. my all time favorite series. 24 issue series.
  • powers by bendis + oeming - fun to read and addictive. different approach in some ways. ongoing series (be sure to start with volume 1).
  • the authority by ellis + hitch - these books deal with what happens when the heroes/villians have extreme power levels. ongoing series (i've only read the first few trades. kinda left that one alone for now).
  • ...

You realize, of course, that most of your "Not DC" are still DC.

You also forgot:

The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller
Batman: Year One by Frank Miller
Torso by Brian Michael Bendis
Jinx by Brian Michael Bendis
Wanted by Mark Millar
Kick-Ass by Mark Millar
Irredeemable by Mark Waid
Sin City by Frank Miller
The Crow by J. O'Barr
HellBlazer by Garth Ennis
Chris Claremont's original run on X-Men
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Allan Moore and Kevin O'Neill
Supreme Power by J. Michael Straczynski
The Spirit by Will Eisner
J. Michael Straczynski's run on Amazing Spider-Man
Mark Waid's first run on The Flash
The Ultimates by Mark Millar
Empire by Mark Waid

That's all I can think of right now.

Oh yeah, 30 Days of Night was a really good read. The art was cool but sometimes left me scratching my head wondering what the artist was actually trying to portray, but I still like the style of the art. Also I was surprised by how close the movie actually followed the original story, good stuff.
