Greetings all. I'm looking for some recommendations for comics/graphic novels to pick up.

I've read a few over the years - was a major Marvel reader in my youth, Spider-man being a major fave - and picked up a few of the 'classics' in my latter years.
To give you a bit of a clue, the ones I've picked up to date are:

From Hell
Dark Knight Returns -
Dark Knight Strikes Back - + - hated this, tried to finish it three times now but just can't get thru
Batman: Year One
The Killing Joke
Arkham Asylum
Batman The Long Halloween - just started
V For Vendetta -
Wolverine - Claremont & Miller
The Walking Dead - Days Gone Bye Was OK but didn't grab me as I was expecting. Don't plan on picking any more up as I'm enjoying the TV Series

Daredevil - Miller/Janson Vol 2 - not read them all yet, but loved these as a teen
Hellboy - Seed of Destruction - not read yet

On order:
Captain Britain vol 3, 4 & 5 - read these back in the days of Hulk weekly/Daredevils magazines and have wanted to re-read for ages

I'm really looking at either graphic novels or comic collections - not individual issues so much. Now I realise there's a lot of superhero ones up there, but I'm interested in any genre really.

Open to suggestions

You can get lots of great recommendations in this thread:

I'm gonna lock this thread now, but feel free to keep the debate going in the one above.  And to pay special attention to my own recommendations



Every time we think we have measured our capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and we're reminded that that capacity may well be limitless
