    Excellent choices all. Since i can’t resist a top five here are mine.

    Marvel: Dark Phoenix Saga, my first encounter with the X-Men and the arc that defines them more than any other. Filled with spectacular action scenes and expertly crafted charecter moment a must read for any comic fan.

    DC: All Star Western, I haven’t read so much DC stuff before the New52. The weird wild west adventures of Johna Hex were a particular stand out for me from that relaunch.

    Indy: Locke and Key, certainly not one for younger readers or sensitive adults. The magically mysterious horrifying saga of the Locke family is a true master class in comics storytelling.

    Pre-Ninety’s: Judge Dredd The Apocalypse War, uncompromising future cop Judge Dredd is on of the great comic book charecters but he can be hard for new readers to get into. This epic storyline is my go to recommendation for him. It’s not the first longer Dredd story but it is one of the most consistent and certainly the most influential.

    Wild card: The Tale of One Bad Rat. Brian Talbot’s story of abuse, survival and redemption. Heartbreaking beautiful and unforgettable.

    Bubbling under: Preacher, The Boys, Hellblazer, Sex Criminals, Stormwatch, Swap Thing, Ms Marvel, Excalibur, New Mutants, Wonder Woman, Batgirl.
