    Default Your absolute favorite Graphic Novel?

    As the title mentioned, what's your favorite Graphic Novel of all time? If someone else takes yours, you have to put a second one. I have free 2 day shipping on google so I don't want to let it run out with me doing some serious book buying

    My favorite one from the future is Savage Dragon Ultimate Collection 1 from July. My favorite one presently, probably Rurouni Kenshin (any of the VizBig editions).
    DROKK IT!!

    Depending on your likes/dislikes I would say:

    -- Elephantmen: Wounded Animals. If you like the pulp-sci-fi stuff....like Bladerunner with human-animal hybrids. Awesome series from Richard Starkings.
    -- The Walking Dead, Volume 1. If you like zombies, or comic books not too "super-hero-y"
    -- Planet Hulk. The Hulk on a far-off world with new characters. You don't have to know any continuity of the Hulk to love this!
    -- Green Lantern: Rebirth. You do have to have at least a little knowledge of this character, but still awesome.
    -- Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. An out-of-continuity series by the Loeb/McGuinness team, great stuff!

    Hope this helps....good luck!
    Currently collecting: Aphrodite IX, Elephantmen, The Flash, Godzilla, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Guardians of the Galaxy, Saga, & Usagi Yojimbo.

    Out of continuity post-Flashpoint, maybe. It was certainly in continuity at the time: it served as the prelude to the introduction of the Supergirl of the time.
    Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...

    I love everything I've read here but Dororo? I feel that is one of Tezuka's weakest titles. Maybe I just like his epic stories that are on grand scales. Dororo felt like Gegege no Kitaro -- a fun episodic yokai manga.
    I've been intrigued by Metabarons for the longest time. I love The Incal but Metabarons seems like a real commitment.

    Metabarons is worth the commitment; one of the finest adventure/action FB albums I've ever read.

    I just love Dororo probably because of the reason you said, it's a great, fun yokai manga (also love GeGeGe no Kitaro), it's a personal choice. If I were to actually pick on skill and technique Black Jack, Swallowing the Earth, Astro Boy, Phoenix, and Buddha would be in that list. IMHO, Tezuka just has a lot of classic manga works from Next World, Lost World to Ayako to MW to Ode to Kirihito to Metropolis.
