The earlier thread about V For Vendetta got me wondering.

A few years ago I started reading the Preacher series to kill some time in a bookstore, and was instantly hooked. Absolutely outstanding story. I read the whole series, and since then I have always kept an eye out for other, similar series.

I still want to find The Watchmen and V For Vendetta, but I loved Batman: Year One, all the Punisher series by Garth Ennis, and Supreme Power.

The Walking Dead - a zombie comic - is pretty good, but not fantastic, IMO.

Anyone else read these?

Elektra: Assassin.
One of Frank Miller's earlier graphic novels.
Very cool plot, uber cool inking and coloring.

Good catch...

-----------
Banky Edwards: Who should I sign it to?
Little Kid: I don't want you to sign it. I want the guy who draws Bluntman and Chronic to sign it.
[snatches the comic away]
Little Kid: You're just a tracer.
Collector: Tell him, little shaver.
[Banky is strangling the Collector]
Collector: You're mucking with a G, you fuckin' tracer.
Banky Edwards: I'll trace a chalk line around your dead fucking body, you fuck!
Holden McNeil: [to Security Guards] Will you get him out of here!
Collector: [as he's being dragged away by Security Guard] Hey wait a second! He jumped me, you fucking tracer!
Banky Edwards: YOUR MOTHER'S A TRACER!

GNs used to be places for the comic creators to work out some more mature stories. Now they do so without fear in the comics themselves.

I have some GNs and have a modest collection of current reprints (I don't get to the comic store as often as I used to...) of some great titles:

Straczynski's initial run on Amazing Spider Man (incredible)
First 10 issues or so of The Authority (Wow, all I can say is wow)
The entire runs of Ghost in the Shell, GiTS2, Appleseed, and Black Magic
Anything Alex Ross does... I think Kingdom Come is close to Watchmen in terms of incredible story... Everything this guy lays his hands on is gold...

Old school:
She-Hulk graphic novel
Killing Joke
The Watchmen (first printing )
...others (haven't gone though my comics from the 80s in years)

There's more... I just don't remember how much more...

My favorite one was when Huey, Louie and Dewey borrowed Donald's car to go see Uncle Scrooge McDuck.

Gotta love the classics.

I read some of the Blade western series but it got to be the same old thing after a few.

You have the exact same taste in Graphic Novels as me. I just finished Preacher. Probably the best thing I've ever read. I've read V for Vendetta, also very good, and the Punisher is my fave Marvel character of all time (I'm liking the new Max run, but the incest is pretty creepy lol).

I'm currently reading through the Sin city books.

What series is this? Not one I've read, that's for sure.

read Frank Miller's Dark Knight stories.
excellent read!

The Watchmen is classic. Easily one of the best things to come out of DC ever.

One more vote for Watchmen...no, there is no 'The', yes I am sure, it is sitting in front of me right now. '86-'87 printing.

How about Heavy Metal Magazine? Good stuff, most of the time.

AvengeR15: I still usually see at least one copy of Watchmen at Borders near me. I don't always look for it, but when I do, it is there.
