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:

Watchmen
From Hell
Maus
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: http://www.empireonline.com/forum/tm.asp?m=2254926&mpage=1&key=graphic%2Cnovel

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
