Batman Dark Knight Returns TP
Batman Dark Knight Returns TP
"One of the best Batman stories out there. Great social commentry about the 80s. A little nihilistic for some"
Superman for All Seasons
Superman for All Seasons
"One of the few superman stories out there that captures the essence of the character, and the spirit of the film"
Batman: Year One
Batman: Year One
"Miller again doing another great Batman story. Dark Knight returns may  have gotten the better publicity and the glossy paper, but for many this is the one with the better story"
Watchmen
Watchmen
"The beginning of the 'dark' era of superheroes. "Who watches the watchmen?""
V for Vendetta
V for Vendetta
"This exudes an atmosphere similar to Orwell's 1984. Read this one slowly and live the experience. You may not agree with the protagonist's views and actions, but they will make you think."
Lucifer: The Divine Comedy
Lucifer: The Divine Comedy
"Recommendation is for the entire series- don't judge on the quality of the 1st trade alone or you'll miss out on one of Vertigo's best, and ironically most moralistic books"
The Complete MAUS
The Complete MAUS
"Pullitzer prize winning tale using cats and mice to illustrate the horrors of the holocaust. If you were troubled by Schindler's list, you may have reservations about reading this tale"
Fortune & Glory: A True Hollywood Comic Book Story
Fortune & Glory: A True Hollywood Comic Book Story
"Genuinely funny comic from a time before Bendis started working for the big companies"
The Sandman: Doll's House (The Sandman Library, Vol. 2)
The Sandman: Doll's House (The Sandman Library, Vol. 2)
"One of the best series of the 90s. Redefining mythology in its own poetic way. Read the whole series, not just the 1st trade (which is lacking compared to the ones that follow)."
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
"The heroes of yesteryear team up to fight evil. There's references to classic literature aplenty, but it's written in such a way that anyone can enjoy this ripping adventure yarn"
Bone: One Volume Edition: 1 (Bone Series)
Bone: One Volume Edition: 1 (Bone Series)
"If you like Disney films, you'll like this. Great flights of fancy. For those children out there and those who are children at heart."
Queen and Country: Operation: Blackwall v. 4
Queen and Country: Operation: Blackwall v. 4
"Stories of espionage, and the fallout from such operations politically and on a personal level for the agents in the field"
Saga of the Swamp Thing
Saga of the Swamp Thing
"Horror comic series that bring a warm glow to the heart. The characters live and breathe, with rounded if often disturbed personalities."
Sleeper Vol 01: Out in the Cold
Sleeper Vol 01: Out in the Cold
"Drips with 'noir.' Conspiracy, murder, sex and the daily compromises that one man must make just to stay alive."
Punisher Vol. 1
Punisher Vol. 1
"Well comics are meant to be fun. Over the top violence, thrills and spills by the team that brought you Preacher"
Captain Britain
Captain Britain
"Classic series finally collected together in one big book. Political satire from a superhero comic in the 80s? Surely not"
Daredevil Legends Volume 2: Born Again TPB: Born Again v. 2
Daredevil Legends Volume 2: Born Again TPB: Born Again v. 2
"Miller's best Daredevil tale. Daredevil's life is torn to pieces, leaving only that which makes him a hero to cling onto"
The Flash: Rogues (Flash (DC Comics))
The Flash: Rogues (Flash (DC Comics))
"People seem obsessed with finding 'superheroes with a twist' or viewed from a 'different angle.' Writing good stories about 'standard' superheroics where heroes are heroes has become a lost art"
The Authority : Relentless
The Authority : Relentless
"This book starts where superhero teams such as the JLA/Avengers draw the line. It may be little more than an action fest to some, but it's done well. Play nice or they'll be round to have words."
Batman: Killing Joke
Batman: Killing Joke
"A little too similar in tone to watchmen, but a good read nonetheless. Well written, chilling story essential to current Batman continuity despite being labelled mature readers only."
