Watchmen
1.  Watchmen by Alan Moore
The list author says:
  "This has to go first because it's an undisputed classic. It's not my favourite by a long shot, but it was a ground breaking work in terms of scale, maturity and technical brilliance."

V for Vendetta
2.  V for Vendetta by Alan Moore
The list author says:
  "This is by the same author as watchmen and I like it more. It's a gritty distopian future britain and V takes his revenge against the fascist government. Very different in tone to the movie."

Bone: One Volume Edition: 1 (Bone Series)
8.  Bone: One Volume Edition: 1 (Bone Series) by Jeff Smith

The Walking Dead Book 1: Bk. 1
10.  The Walking Dead Book 1: Bk. 1 by Tony Moore
