Incredible Hulk: Regression (Incredible Hulk (Marv&hellip by Bill Mantlo
This book collects Hulk 286-300 and tells the tale of a Hulk who is now being fully controlled by Bruce Banner. Hulk has restored his reputation in the eyes of the public and is determined not to let his savage side take over. This is the second of the three brilliant books by Bill Mantlo, who wrote the hulk stories between 1980 and 1985, at a time when I was growing up and it is some of these stories that cemented my love for the Hulk.

Superman World Without A Superman TP (Superman (DC&hellip by Various
This is the least known of the four "Death of Superman" books and in some ways one of the best. It starts in the immediate aftermath of Superman's death at the hands of the frighteningly powerful Doomsday, who of course has died as well. What follows is quite a poignant tale as all the major characters come to terms with the loss of their greatest hero. My only criticism is that these books look a bit date now, especially compared with the current New 52 books, but its quite a deep, thoughtful book, which is rare in the comic book world.
Batman Hush Complete TP by Jim Lee
Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee paired up for this spectacular story, which includes a stellar cast of Batman friends and foes and stunning artwork to boot. Its a murder mystery story, who is the mysterious Hush and what link does he have to Bruce Wayne's past. Needless to say there is a lot of action here and I rate this as my favourite Batman book from the last decade. The finale was perhaps a tiny bit disappointing, but the story up to that point made up for it.
