    No particular order...

    - The Sandman (all) - Currently re-reading these right now. If I had to pick a few volumes as favorites, probably Brief Lives, The Kindly Ones and Endless Nights. Reminds me I need to pick up The Dream Hunters at some point and actually read the two Death TPBs.
    - Y The Last Man
    - Watchmen
    - World Without a Superman - Despite all the other 90s continuity nonsense in the background, very effective at showing the reactions of Superman's friends and family to his death.
    - Crisis on Infinite Earths
    - Tales of the Multiverse: Batman - Vampire
    - TF: MTMTE Guidebooks Volumes 1 and 2 - Can't begin to count how many times I've read these.
    - The Complete Far Side
    - The Complete Calvin and Hobbes

    Me too. Love this whole series. :thumb 

    A friend loaned me Superman & Batman vs. Alien & Predator. It was actually pretty awesome. I really want to read the 90s predecessors.

    Lessee...

    All Star Superman

    Blackhole by Charles Burns

    Metropol by Ted McKeever

    "I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets" by Fletcher Hanks

    Most anything Robert Crumb did

    Most anything that Johnny Ryan does

    The Immortal Iron Fist (first few collections, Brubaker-Fraction era)

    Lee and Kirby's Fantastic Four collections

    Lee and Ditko's Amazing Spider-Man collections

    Nextwave vol. 1 and 2 (because they're awesome, not just to make Boardwise happy)

    Box Office Poison & Tricked, by Alex Robinson

    The whole friggin' run of Starman

    Most anything Eisner did, "A Life Force" and "Dropsie Avenue" are both fun

    Gaiman's Sandman

    Just about anything Alan Moore does

    And "Like a Velvet Glove Cast In Iron" by Clowes.

    TL,DR A lot of things, mostly black and white dirty comics or early superhero stuff.

    I love Civil War, the first Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man TBP, Transformers Defiance, All Hail Megatron (I know I'm in the minority. :p ), the original Marvel Transformers comics, and Ultimate Spider-Man before it got really crappy.

    Frak yes.
