@aztek_the_lost Good list, are there any more like this?
Do you know where to find future DC releases of non monthly comic arcs and one off graphic novels (collected in one book) like Red Son/Birthright/ID Crisis etc?
@DoomDoomDoom: I'm not usually one for biographical comics (which several of the unread Vertigo titles are on this list) but at the same time, all the ones from Vertigo I've read have been awesome so I don't know why I still don't trust the other ones yet
But yeah, DC is much better at this then Marvel, I don't even bother looking at Marvel because there's no real list of "essential Marvel reads" that isn't just bogged down by popularity over actual critical acclaim
Desolation Jones was great except that it suffers from Warren Ellis...in that he's never going to finish it...just like he never finishes anything he's written except Transmetropolitan and Planetary (turning a two-year book into a ten year book) and Supergod (turning five months into fourteen)
Great list, and I agree DC/Vertigo does a great job marketing there titles. I've read about fifteen of these titles but almost all of them I want to read one day. Especially Desolation Jones, this is the third time I've seen it mentioned today, I love Warren Ellis but I missed this title.
@kfhrfdu_89_76k: I intend to read all of these eventually, I have no claims that I've read all the essential comics but I have read a lot of good ones that aren't on this list
What!? You haven`t read Batman: Year one?! Oh, well, that`s okay.
These are all fantastic looking books.
Very nice, some great books up there.
