    Hey, just seeing if there are any avid comic book readers out there. Looking for epic stories. I'm more of a graphic novel type, but any recommendations will do. Post away! :)

    The best I've read so far are:

    Batman: Hush

    (Green Lantern) Brightest Day 1, 2, & 3

    (New 52) Shazam

    (New 52) Catwoman series

    Batman: RIP

    Blue Beetle (1996 series??)

    Firestorm (199...8 graphic novel??)

    I know I'm missing a few, I'll post more if I think of them. Batman: Hush definitely tops the list tho imo. I'm waiting for a series dedicated to Martian Manhunter, though unlikely that will happen. Wish they wouldn't have cancelled New 52 Blue Beetle so soon. Those 2 and Shazam (aka Captain Marvel for the supernerds out there :p) are by far my favorite characters so far. (Aside from Batman and Catwoman, but they're mainstream.) Firestorm's up there too, awesome character and quantum physics based storyline.

    I'm not a big superhero fan,

    in other graphic novel news, I'm hearing brilliant things about "Y:the last man" and "saga"

    And every new issue of "Providence" is like fucking christmas :)

    I really enjoyed the green lantern darkest night and brightest day series they did a while ago. I'm also a huuuuge fan of ghost world.

    I only like classic historic/adventure comics/cartoons/graphic novels like Tintin and Blueberry. Actually, probably because I grew up with them I mostly dig belgian and french comics. They're bigger than Marvel in those countries as well as in the Netherlands (my country) as far as I know. I thoroughly dislike superhero cartoons where everything you can imagine and draw is imagined and drawn. It always makes it too nonsensical, over the top and unrelatable for me personally.

    Nothing gets more epic than a well executed spaghetti western setting :D
