Green Arrow: Quiver (Green Arrow (Graphic Novels))
Green Arrow: Quiver (Green Arrow (Graphic Novels))
"Kevin Smith got me back into comics. It's even more fun once you get to know the continuity but don't let that dissuade you. Oliver Queen: Legend."
Daredevil Volume 1: Guardian Devil TPB: Guardian Devil v. 1 (Graphic Novel Pb)
Daredevil Volume 1: Guardian Devil TPB: Guardian Devil v. 1 (Graphic Novel Pb)
"Another Smith story with his usual smartass dialogue. Crackling good fun from Marvel's Hornhead which should lead you to read the earlier Frank Miller run."
Kingdom Come
Kingdom Come
"An Elseworlds - alternative timeline - story that's simply brilliant. Cast of thousands... Ross' artwork gives it cinematic appeal."
Marvels
Marvels
"This tells of the big events of the Marvel Age and how they impact on the 'real world' through the camera lens of an everyman, Phil Sheldon. And his one good eye."
Golden Age
Golden Age
"Another Elseworlds tale, superbly told in words and shadowy, conspiratorial art. Great parallels with the post-WWII Red Scare. See also 'JSA Liberty Files'."
Starman: Sins of the Father: v. 1
Starman: Sins of the Father: v. 1
"The first of my favourite series. Great writing and Harris' art and decoration is sumptuous."
The Complete Concrete
The Complete Concrete
"A different type of comic here. Human emotion, dreams and frailties. Wrapped up in 1000lbs+ of concrete."
The Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes (The Sandman, Vol. 1)
The Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes (The Sandman, Vol. 1)
"Took my time getting to Sandman, but it was so worth it. 11 in all. Get Hy Bender's companion book. And give Carey's 'Lucifer' a shot as well."
The Authority : Relentless
The Authority : Relentless
"How a super-powered team would properly sort out despots et al. Let the headkicking commence. Mark Millar later took over from Ellis."

"Frank Miller. Legend. No matter what he tackles - Sin City, Daredevil, Dark Knight. Er, forgetting DK2 maybe."
Powers Volume 1: Who Killed Retro Girl?: Who Killed Retro Girl? v. 1
Powers Volume 1: Who Killed Retro Girl?: Who Killed Retro Girl? v. 1
"The best consistent work by Bendis who writes one or two other books for a living, though not as well..."
The Complete MAUS
The Complete MAUS
"Simply because, comics fan or not, you should. A story you won't forget."
Justice League: A New Beginning (Justice League (DC Comics))
Justice League: A New Beginning (Justice League (DC Comics))
"Bwaaa-hah-hah-haaaaaa. Giffen and De Matteis have a great take on the JLA. More recent exploits also available in 'Formerly Known as the Justice League'."
Sleeper Vol 01: Out in the Cold
Sleeper Vol 01: Out in the Cold
"Dirty, violent, sleazy, treacherous. And utterly unputdownable. Read the 'Point Blank' prequel too."
Yossel April 19, 1943: April 19, 1943 - A Story of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
Yossel April 19, 1943: April 19, 1943 - A Story of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
"A sad tale of what could have been, told in raw, hurried pencil. Quite beautiful."
Top Ten Book 1
Top Ten Book 1
"One of Moore's best, though Watchmen's more 'worthy' and 'From Hell' deeper. And Ha's art is full of so many little details. Two books only so far."
Fables: Legends in Exile (Vertigo)
Fables: Legends in Exile (Vertigo)
"Fairytales of New York. Not quite the bedtime reading of your childhood. Unless you're quite disturbed. A great series with so much material to mine for inspiration."
Superman: Secret Identity
Superman: Secret Identity
"Truly one of  the best Superman stories ever. And it's not even really about him. Sort of."
Astro City Confession TP (Kurt Busiek's Astro City)
Astro City Confession TP (Kurt Busiek's Astro City)
"The second Astro City book, but the best story. The others aren't shabby though."
Charley's War: 2 June-1 August 1916
Charley's War: 2 June-1 August 1916
"The Great War, from a boy's comic ' Battle', but subversively far more grown up than that."
Y: The Last Man Vol. 1 - Unmanned
Y: The Last Man Vol. 1 - Unmanned
"A great idea which flags a little in its execution, but still great storytelling. See also Vaughan's 'Ex Machina'."
Hellboy: Seed of Destruction
Hellboy: Seed of Destruction
"A classic character who turns his back on hell, wisecracks with the undead and usually beats the crap out of them too. Brilliant artwork too."
Inhumans TPB
Inhumans TPB
"Not the best known Marvel characters but a story well worth discovering."
Squadron Supreme TPB
Squadron Supreme TPB
"The original, predating Straczynki's 'Supreme Power' retelling. Both fantastic tales, both expertly told. Check out JMS' 'Rising Stars' too."
Attack Of The Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons: Calvin & Hobbes Series: Book Ten (Calvin and Hobbes)
Attack Of The Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons: Calvin & Hobbes Series: Book Ten (Calvin and Hobbes)
"And just because comics aren't all about capes and lycra. Classic. Everyone should have a Hobbes."
