    Daredevil anything by Bendis & Maleev
    Captain America Winter Soldier...my all time favorite
    Civil War
    From the sound of it, you and I have similar taste. Irredeemable was one of my favorite stories, except it got a little convoluted near the end. Marvels was fantastic. Old Man Logan was great, and I haven't read his Old Man Logan series yet but I'm excited to start it. Long Halloween was pretty good, but I'm partial to Hush and Arkham Asylum being my favorite Batman stories.

    I'm excited to get it here in the next few days, but I've been enhancing the pictures and cataloging the titles, and there's a LOT of Volume 3s or Volume 6s, etc., without having the first ones. So essentially, I just spent $1000 so I can go ahead and spend more money and fill in the gaps, lol. Oh well. And the library stickers should come off easy enough, but I forgot to ask if they have the cards inside. I hope not. Do modern libraries still do the cards on the inside?

    Irredeemable is fantastic, but I felt it dragged on a little too long and wasn't too big a fan of the ending.

    Pretty much I'll read anything by Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, Jonathan Hickman, Warren Ellis.

    Oh, and fun fact for anyone that is OCD enough to catalog graphic novels Ö I hate Spider-Man now. This is why:

    The series starts off with the 1963 Amazing Spider-Man series and has issues #1 through #441. Then it continues to the 1999 Amazing Spider-Man series and has issues #1 through #58. Then it continues to the 1963 Amazing Spider-Man series with issues #500 through #700. Then it continues to the Avenging Spider-Man series for one issue in issue #15.1, then it continues to the Superior Spider-Man series, then it goes back to the 1963 series for a few issues. Then it goes to the Amazing Spider-Man 2015 series for a few issues, then it goes back to the 1963 series, then it continues to the Amazing Spider-Man 2018 series.

    Fuck you Spider-Man.

    I love Hush as well. Jim Lee canít hit a deadline to save his life but his Batman is my fave. And I know this is super duper unpopular, but I donít like Arkham Asylum bc of the art. Clearly Iím in the minority

    Congrats on the collection sounds like you got a great deal

    Based on this info Iíd say give Ed Brubaker a shot too. Also, Matt Fractions Hawkeye run is a cool version of campy fun

    And Jason Aaron!

    Co-sign on Aaron. Brubaker's Daredevil run is out of this world. Soule's current run is great too.

    Shannon's post reminded me I really need to take pictures of my collection.

    I've read Brubaker's Incognito and The Fade Out, both are great.

    Jason Aaron - I've read Scalped , Punisher MAX and a decent chunk of his Thor run which is some of the best Thor stuff I've ever read.

    Have either of you read Injection by Ellis?

    Edit: I was thinking of Jason Aaron wolverine I think...been too long

    Does the bear shit in the woods? Yep, and it's great stuff.

    Men of Wrath and Southern Bastards are great too. There's a scene in Men of Wrath that's going to make you feel really bad. You'll know it when you see it.

    Re: Ellis. His best work is stand-alone titles for Avatar: Superhods, Scars, Aetheric Mechanics, Frankenstein's Womb, No Hero etc.

    This is everything I have by Jean "Moebius" Giraud and Alejandro Jodorowsky. I still need a few books to complete the collection but it's almost complete.

    The Woods - cross genre book I found because of the writer, James Tynion IV.
    Clean Room - A great horror book by Gail Simone
    Gideon Falls - A newer book, I enjoyed volume one
