If you really want a good series, try the No Mans Land volumes 1-5.
Another good series might be Batman: Bruce Wayne murderer and then the subsequent Fugitive volumes 1-3.

If your store has them and this would be the cheapest option. Try Batman and Dracula Red Rain, Bloodstorm and Crimson mist. This is a triliogy which takes place in the elseworld series. Really good and really well written by Doug Monech.

check out IGN's guide to the top 25 batman GNs of all time.

Ultimate Comics Avengers just started and you might be able to get the two issues out already. It's really shaping up to be badass.

If you want something funny with action you could try anything with Deadpool in the title.
Batman Unseen is pretty interesting also with Kelly Jones doing the artwork.

Thanks. Not really looking for "funny", but I will give those a gloss at the comic book store. Has anyone read through bruce wayne murderer and the 3 fugitive books? Thoughts?

The lack of Matt Wagner and Paul Pope in this thread disappoints me.

30th Oct 2009, 16:49
name the books they were part of and I shall devour them.

I'd also get into Arkham Reborn at the moment, it has a solid first issue.
