    So, I've been really interested into buying some comic TPBs and while I've got a fair idea of what to get from characters like Superman or Batman, there are a lot of characters/teams that I have NO IDEA where to start. Basically, these are characters that I've seen in stuff like 52 or on teams like the JSA and want to know more about them, but have no clue what I should read.

    So, recommend me some good TPBs featuring these characters:

    The Punisher
    Wonder Woman
    Daredevil
    Iron Man
    Nightwing
    Power Girl
    Nova
    Thanos
    The New Gods
    Captain Marvel
    Iron Fist
    Luke Cage
    Supergirl
    She-Hulk
    Hulk
    Dead Shot
    Green Arrow
    Mr. Freeze
    Kyle Rayner
    Guy Gardner
    John Stewart
    Mongul (The first one)
    Superboy (Kon-El)
    Donna Troy

    They can be from any era, I just want to read more good stuff with these characters in it.

    The New Gods
    Read the original runs of The Forever People and Mr. Miracle.


    The Punisher
    Read "Welcome Home, Frank", and the Punisher: Max series, maybe one of the "essential Punisher" early volumes.


    Which Captain Marvel? If it's the Shazam one, read Jeff Smith's "Shazam!" graphic novels.


    For Deadshot, you'll likely want to read the Suicide Squad books.
