Preacher by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon - A tale of love and friendship … and religion and murder and betrayal and even a guy with a face that looks like an arse. Also it has some of the best dialogue I’ve ever read.
Animal Man, Doom Patrol, Flex Mentallo, The Invisibles and We3 by Grant Morrison,
Chaz Truog, Richard Case, Frank Quitely and many others - Doom Patrol, Flex Mentallo, and The Invisibles will blow your mind. We3 will break your heart. And Animal Man will make Buddy Baker one of your favorite characters. Read them all.
Astro City by Kurt Busiek, Brent Anderson and Alex Ross - In my opinion, the best series about superheroes EVER. Kurt Busiek tells superhero stories here in ways you’ll never read anywhere else. Also, he consistently makes me care about his characters in every story, which is not an easy feat. I recommend this book to new comics readers all the time.
I’d love to write more about these series, but instead I’ll just recommend some more with a few words:
Birds of Prey #102 (March 2007) Written
by Gail Simone, art by Nicola Scott and Doug Hazelwood
When Lois Lane guest starred in Birds of Prey, Barbara Gordon was
worried. She knew that Lois was a relentless reporter and that if Lois was
looking into her for any reason, like for secretly being Oracle and leading the
Birds of Prey, then she was in serious trouble. Lois had managed to put most of
Barbara’s Birds of Prey activities together, but she wasn’t there to out her.
She was there to warn her to tighten her security; if Lois could dig up that
much dirt on her, someone with more nefarious intentions might be able to as
well. Lois Lane only goes after the bad guys.
