Back in the day, I was an X-Men, Spawn, and Silver Surfer guy. Beach Tribe and I had similar tastes.

Now, I like graphic novels more. I was never really a Justice League fan, but loved loved Kingdom Come. The Sinestro Corp Wars, Planet Hulk, Old Man Logan, Walking Dead, Y: The Last Man. I've heard some good things about Invincible, so I may check that out.

Definitely one of my favorites when I was a kid. The best from Image Comics were Spawn and The Maxx.

I was always into superheroes, not so much into comics. I have read a few though and tend to only like Spider-Man, X-Men and Batman comics. For me, a comic hinges like 90% on the drawing style and the rest on the actual storyline. I like the sleek, new style of the Ultimate comics so Ultimate Spider-Man and X-Men are cool. There was this one Batman comic I read with him fighting Superman with superb drawing. I want to say it was Kingdom Come but I could just be making that up. Batman is just cool as shit so I can enjoy any comic I read about him.

Speaking specifically, the comics I like the most are Wolverine: Origins, Marvel: Civil War and the Black Panther wedding with Storm.

I think you're talking about The Dark Knight Returns. Bats takes on Supes, who is then an agent for the governrment. In that story, Bats is like 60 years old. Another great graphic novel read.

I just Googled it and I think it was from Hush. This still came up in the query and it matches the drawing style I like.

Plus the one I was talking about, I remember Superman being under mind-control. Apprently it was Poison Ivy.

Ennis' "Welcome Back Frank" Series for the Punisher was pretty great.

I love most anything Batman. "Justice League: Tower of Babel" Shows why he's the ultimate badass. "Hush," "The Dark Knight Returns," "Year One," and "The Killing Joke," were all pretty awesome.

Superman- "For the Man who Has Everything," is one of the best comic books ever. All-Star Superman is also pretty Great.

We3 was a good one if you're looking for something off the wall.

Runaways was probably one of the best concepts for a comic, I'd read when it first came out. Once the traitor was identified, it went steeply down hill, but up until then it's one of my favorites of all time.

I still love Walking Dead... The Prison/Governor stories were the best ones, IMO. It's starting to get interesting again.

I'll agree about Preacher being one of the best adult comics.

Darkness? It's uneven in quality, but the initial story line before he began interacting with the Angles was cool. I kind of got convoluted for me after than point.

I'm not much of a fan of the X-men anymore, but a somewhat recent Uncanny X-Force story line where they're hunting a new Apocalypse in the form of a child was pretty great. Of course they ruin the impact of the ending in subsequent X-titles like they often do, but that's just typical of X-men crap.
X-Factor and Maddrox have had some really good runs in the past when Peter David is at the helm.

Brubaker's Captain America: Winter Soldier run is really good. I've never liked the ol' Cap, so to have any comic writer make me care about his comic seemed unlikely to me, but Brubaker did it. Mark Waid's Rebirth series isn't half bad either.

I guess you're more into the awesome writing that goes into "Hulk strongest!!"
I was into the big conflicts. I do like the Hulk BTW.
And SS rocked as a young boy.
I also liked Secret Wars.

Hell yeah, a contingency plan for each and every member of the JL in case they ever went rogue; Batman is tits. Also, I've never read any of those graphic novels. I've heard great things about all of them but just never went out and bought them, although this thread is making me really want to.

As a side note, was anyone interested in Iron Man before Downey Jr? It's amazing the level of fame his charisma has brought to the character.

Yes, lots of people, actually. His "Armor Wars" was a big deal, and he acted like - well, not quite a villain, but certainly an antagonist (and a bit of a dick) in "Civil War".

In terms of superheroes, my all time favorite run is Morrison on New X-Men. My favorite current runs (as in, runs that are still ongoing) are Azzarello on Wonder Woman, Lemire on Animal Man, Rucka on Punisher, and Hickman on Fantastic Four/FF.

Not a huge Iron Man fan, but Extremis kicked ass. That's my all time favorite Iron Man story.

I liked Inferno and the AOE better.

And Thanos is a bad man but I prefer the more classic bad guys like Doom, Magneto, and Apocalypse.


I guess you're more into the awesome writing that goes into "Hulk strongest!!"

I would highly recommend the Peter David run on Hulk. His whole thing was turning the Hulk into Banner's "bad side" instead of some Frankenstein that can bench press a skyscraper.

The "Joe Fixit" and "Professor" Hulk stories were very good. Peter Davids GN's Visionaries series is probably the best period of the Hulk.

Y the last man! Seriously give it a read. Fantastic.

I have a couple volumes of "Y the Last Man," and is pretty darn great to start with. I think my interest started to wane a little bit at the end of the second volume, but I've thought about picking up another one. From a male standpoint, this "What If," usually brings up the idea of a pretty obvious fantasy that I didn't see explored in the first two volumes, and I do find myself wondering if they ever got around to doing something like that in the later issues. Since most of the ladies seemed anti-man it didn't happen right away, but it's going to happen right?

If you all like graphic novels that aren't exactly comic books, I think "Locke and Key," is one of the better titles out there right now. It's a very a creative and twisted story by Joe Hill about a family who live in a house filled with supernatural keys that open up locks into a ton of different crazy twighlight zone-type possibilities. It's fun enough to enjoy, but dark enough to give you nightmares if you read it too late at night. As much as I love the books by Joe's father, Stephen King- I'm starting to the think Joe might be becoming the more creative writer, or at the very least the more surreal writer. I'd rank this title right up there with great books like "Walking Dead" and the amazing "Sweet Tooth."

If you like the fun and brutality of the "Invincible" comic- I'd also recommend the "The Strange Talents of Luther Strode." The ending felt a little rushed and didn't quite live up to the amazing premise, but it was still pretty darn stellar.

(This thread might be better served moved to Media forum, IMO)
