    Default Good series

    I'm looking for a series that is a good read that's pretty self contained, and only 1-3 vols long anyone have any sort of suggestions please feel free to say something.

    Like right now I have Blacksad, The Cape, Fear Agent( library 2 preordered) and The 5 Ultimate Collections of Ninja Turtles (1-3 and 4&5 preordered)

    Umbrella Academy by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá is two vols right now, Apocalypse Suite and Dallas. It's a really good read and completely self contained.

    Locke & Key has 5 volumes out, with a 6th and final volume finishing up in monthlies soon. Great series. Might be more than you're looking for, though.
    VALIANT, Saga, Chew, Manhattan Projects, Revival, East of West, Locke & Key, Hawkeye, Young Avengers.

    I think the two series that have just started that get most praise from their readers are Brian Vaughan/ Fiona Staples "Saga" and Jonathan Hickman/Nick Pitarra/Cris Peter "Manhattan Projects".

    If you're willing to consider stuff that's been around longer then I'd put in strong recs for:-

    Greg Rucka "Queen and Country" (Terrific spy series, available in trades. Well worth giving first trade a go, then if you like that, buy others as funds permit. If you like first trade... you will not be disappointed in rest.)

    Eric Powell "The Goon". This is one of the few remaining comics where you just jump on at any issue, and confidently expect to enjoy the ride.

    We can't let the thread become jinxed by remaining on 13 postings, so I'll make one more rec.

    I really like Ed Brubaker/ Sean Phillips "Fatale". Its well written, and also an unusual blend... crime/ supernatural noir.

    And if you like that it can lead you to a ton of really good short series that Messrs Brubaker and Phillips have done: Incognito, Criminal and Sleeper. (Sleeper is a real favourite of mine.)
