    Favorite/Recommended Graphic Novels?

    I am just curious, what are some of your favorite graphic novels?

    I really enjoyed Y: The Last Man, possibly one of the greatest series I have ever read.

    Den by Richard Corben and his all his other works, Batman Year One, AKIRA (original black and white), Blueberry (western) and everything by Moebius. I don't read a lot but those I absolutely love specially Blueberry, it's like reading a Leone's western, it will grab you like nothing else.

    Black hole by Charles Burns.
    Ghost World by Daniel Clowes
    Blankets by Craig Thompson
    The Sandman: Dream Hunters -Neil Gaiman (Illustrated by Yoshitako Amano)

    I don't know if it counts by I have the whole collection of Little Nemo by Winsor McCay. It's not really a graphic novel, but man is it beautiful.

    Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore with art by Brian Bolland.

    I have the softback, but bought the hardback just yesterday. Why? Like, why not?

    Killing Joke is overratted if you ask me.

    I've heard good things about Y: The Last Man. I plan on giving it a look.

    Wanted, The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, Silent Hill Omnibus, Freakangels, and The Killer are all pretty awesome to me.

    My favourite comic book series is the Danish "Valhalla" comics. There have been 14 so far, but the 15th final one will be released this year. So the series are finally coming to an end, the first was released in 1979. I grew up with them, so it's rather bittersweet.

    They all revolve about the various stories of the Norse mythology. The drawing style is stylized, but really beautifully done! And it's with some great humour. Its website is here I think they have been released in English (edit: sorry, just checked, they haven't, real pity). Here are all the covers.
