My favourite Western graphic novel is Watchmen. My favourite manga is Ghost in the Shell.

Put another mark down for Watchmen. Also, I found Sandman: Season of Mists to be quite inspirational.

The Reformed, wasn't bad. It would have been good if it had more detail and plot though. I read the first Legends of Warcraft comic to, and totaly loved the dwarf smith.

Identity Crisis.

Stunning. Completely stunning. Heartstopping, addictive, fascinating and with an end I didn't see coming.

My favorites shift a bit depending on what I'm reading at the time, but Queen & Country may be the best thing evar.

I can't pick just one of the Sandman graphic novels. My husband likes "The Kindly Ones" best though.

Every boys favourite fascist :)

Dredd wasnt bad, but I always favoured Rogue Trooper, or the ABC warriors. (Slaine possibly, but only the later sexy artwork versions by Bisley.)

Arkham Asylum rocks; Killing Joke is also excellent (though I'm not sure how comfortable I am with the idea them Joker a definite origin story, but it was really well done). Watchmen = amazing.

I'm afraid I'm a very dull one, being a latecomer to comics (started reading them in my 30s). I like Ultimate Spiderman, only the Ultimate version, because of the grace of the lines in the pictures. And I read a bunch of Inuyasha manga online after finding out the show didn't cover the full storyline. So I'm nowhere near reading anything beyond what modern culture has thrown in my path... except for that manga I read about some restaurant for the dead, that was a wild one, must go pick up that story...

Since then I've been trying to work up graphics and fresh characterizations for my own novel characters and haven't been reading them at all.
