Hi

I currently read lots of DC stuff. (Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Justice League etc.) Also The Walking Dead. I am just beginning to get into Spiderman and Hulk. Just wondering though, if there are any other really great graphic novels/series etc that I should check out?

Here are some current series you should check out. They are all from Valaint, the best publisher right now. Trust me, everything is consistently amazing and you won't regret trying these indie books.

  • X-O Manowar
  • Harbinger
  • Bloodshot
  • Archer & Armstrong
  • Shadowman
  • Quantum & Woody
  • Eternal Warrior
  • Unity

Marvels, the one illustrated by Alex Ross, is quite good. I enjoyed the TPB of the Assimilation^2 Doctor Who/Star Trek crossover as well, and V for Vendenta, or heck any Alan Moore stuff, is a must read.

I second this. Maybe don't replace all of your current books for Valiant, but I'd take a couple from them.

agreed with Superman:red Son. As far as DC stuff goes, I also would try: JSA: Liberty File & the Unholy Three (both elseworlds), Final Crisis:Legion of three worlds, Flash: the return of Barry Allen (awesome! especially if you like Professor Zoom!), JLA/JSA Virtue & Vice, and JSA: the Golden Age (another Elseworlds story...), Batman:Red Rain (yup, elseworlds.....)

Some cool Marvel stuff right off the top of my head? hmmm.......... Annihilation & Annihilation Conquest, Fear itself (main storyline), Infinity Gauntlet, Exiles (any & all! 1st series!), Captain Britain (Alan Moore and Alan Davis did some brilliant work!), good lord, i could go on forever....

Must read graphic novels...hmm I'd say at the top of the list is Watchmen, haven't read the new ones the came out not to long ago but the original one is amazing.
Also Red Son, the idea behind it is interesting and gives you another perspective on the man of steel.
A more recent one that's pretty good is Saga. It's like Romeo and Juliet but their alien races against each other in a war and so much more. :)
ALSO Old Man Logan and V for Vendetta
