    best graphic novel comic book

    ok what is everyone's fav comic book on going or once off or graphic novel.

    Looking for some quality reading so curious for suggestions.

    For me Watchmen is one of the tops - they are making a movie of it, if they screw it there will be hell to pay.

    The dark night returns... good reworking of some of the main character and themes but the mutant story line was a bit ropey


    Batman Arkam Asylum.. OWG Visually amazing story quiet good.

    on going series for a time was Spawn Capullo's art managed to more than make up for McFarlane's writing... some of plots were interesting but the pacing was all over the place the cybernetic gorilla was the first strike, the movie the second and somewhere around issue 70 or 80 I gave up.

    X-men good in parts but Marvel got greedy lets put out 5 x men titles and milk our fans.. thanks but no thanks.

    My favorite has always been Moebius' work. The Airtight Garage, and The Incal were a couple of my favorites.

    definitely more into the older stuff. most things now-a-days just seem mass produced or rip-offs of the old ones. just my opinion, but the various Predator graphic novels were always a plus - JAG
    it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..

    "Preacher" is the funniest thing I've read for ages.

    "Invisibles".(yeah, it's The Matrix)

    "Fallen Angel" is good too.

    "Sandman" is great, as is UK comic "2000AD"- look for "Durham Red", "Glimmer Rats"l "Rogue Trooper" and "Nemesis the Warlock".

    Really like the new "Conan" efforts too.

    The Watchman
    The Dark Knight Returns
    From Hell
    Maus

    And the Metabarons series for some straight up eye-candy, fully painted by the amazing Juan Gimenez. Hell, if we're including eye candy, throw in anything by Travis Charest and Enki Bilal. I'm also a fan-in-the-making of Ashley Wood's Popbot.

    The Punisher (Garth Ennis) books were sweet, liked them a lot.

    I'm a fan of a lot of these, but I can't believe you guys haven't mentioned Bone yet. For shame.

    Supermarket by Kristian and Brian Wood. Love the artwork. The last bit of the story seems a bit rushed but it's still the comic that got me back into comics. Anything I've read by Brian Wood has been pretty damn good.
