X-Men: Messiah CompleX was pretty good. I don't really follow a whole continuity though and usually only read whatever arc sounds interesting, and MC was quite and engaging read.

And Hush is awesome. Even without Jeph Loeb's story, I'd still feel very enthusiastic about getting the whole story from Jim's pencils.

Reminds me, Secret War by Brian Michael Bendis and Gabrielle del'Otto is amazing too. Wonderful painted art to go along with the captivating story.

Hellboy, get as many as you can

Sandman-best comic series of all time 75 issues of sustained greatness and new miniseries coming out this year

Love and Rockets-Gilbert Hernandez is amazing but Jaime is great too

Saga is awesome, best comic out right now.

Glory by image is pretty good, redesign of a shitty Rob Liefeld character

Orc Stain by James Stokoe I think is the second best comic out now but 2 issues come out a year max, the art is insanely detailed but the first 6 issues just got released in a TPB.

For superheroes besides Frank Miller batman, I think Morrison's book on New X-men was really really amazing. If you don't have it get Dark Knight Returns and Dark Knight Strikes Again.

Also any Sin City book is amazing.

Sky Doll by Barbara Canepa is badass if you can find it in english

Fatale is pretty solid too. or Rachel Rising.

i tend to read a bunch of graphic novels and bandes dessinees (euro stuff) that nobody here's ever heard of or would likely be interested in.



but one thing i'm really digging online is rob goodin's "covered" blog in which a normal cover is redrawn by an amateur artist, often for amusing results. couple examples:



.




.




.



lot of mainstream shit (marvel / DC / major indies) over there, too, so someone here might possibly dig it...

The Dark Knight Returns - GOAT comic
Also read The Killing Joke or The Long Holloween



The Winter Soldier is a really good trade. I haven't read too many comics so guys like BJ would be more help
