    I vote for:
    iZombie (about to be over, so you can get the whole thing soon)
    Fables (great series, I buy it in trade)
    Unwritten (my personal favorite)

    Everyone Loves Sandman. I just got the first couple of trades, but have not read them yet, so cant give my own opinion. It is a classic though.

    Preacher
    Transmetropolitan
    Alan Moore's Swamp Thing
    Sandman
    Hellblazer (Garth Ennis' run, though a couple volumes are out of print for inexplicable reasons)
    Y: the Last Man
    Fables (up until War & Pieces anyway)
    100 Bullets
    Scalped
    The Invisibles
    DMZ (maybe, I have mixed feelings about this book)

    The creator-owned books on there are considered by many to be the magum opuses for their respect writers.

    As far as series still running right now, I'd say that American Vampire and Sweet Tooth have very good chances of joining that list.

    Seeing as to how you loved Preacher, you will definitely love Transmet. The two go quite well together and were contemporaneous with each other as well (Preacher 1995-2000, Transmet 1997-2002)

    Went to a used bookstore tonight (1/2 price books) and found a bunch of Transmetropolitan and Sandman books, so looking forward to reading those. Thanks everyone for the suggestions!

    You didn't like Transmetropolitan?

    If you add non-Vertigo titles, then I can't think of a long, long list of other stuff to add. (Sleeper!)

    I read like three trades of it once, and it was a long time ago. So I can't really say if I like it or not.

    When it comes to Transmetropolitan, my usual first question is, "Did you like Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas?" If the answer to that question is YES, then Transmet is right up your alley. If NO, then you probably won't love Transmet.

    My personal favorites are:

    Preacher
    100 Bullets
    The Filth
    The Invisibles
    Flex Mentallo
    The Sandman
    Y: The Last Man
    Hobos frighten me. It's time my enemies shared my dread.

    Scalped. Above all the rest, easily.

    Other must reads:

    Transmetropolitan
    Daytripper
    Alan Moore's Swamp Thing
    Doom Patrol
    The Sandman
    The Invisibles
    Garth Ennis's run on Hellblazer
    The Unwritten
    Sweet Tooth
    American Vampire

    Once you've caught up with those, read DMZ, 100 Bullets, Y: The Last Man and Lucifer. That should keep you busy for a while.
