I've built up a decent collection of comic books/graphic novels and quite frankly, I love them. From the writing, to the characterization, to the art style.

If I want a gritty sort of story, I usually go with: Batman: Year One, The Long Halloween, A Death in the Family, The Killing Joke, Hellblazer.

Then for more thematic purposes: V for Vendetta, The Watchmen.

As for an epic sort of story: SaGa. I came across this one on Amazon, and the story is incredible and the plot kicks off with bits of dialogue supplying exposition and exposition itself, it's been called: "Romeo and Juliet meets Star wars Meets Game of Thrones." Check this one out folks. It's a bit graphic with nudity, but it's a fantastic piece of work worth checking out.

I've also got the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. Can't wait to get to that and read it.

I'm a picky sort of person and I think I can make an allowance for a Marvel or DC story as long as it's decently written, has incredible twists and makes a reader think.

What graphic novel/comic books do you read aside from Dreamkeepers?

I dont really read comic books much these days, but webcomics are something that takes up a lot of my time.

I Read Original Life, Housepets!, Sandra and Woo, Faux Pas, Bittersweet Candy Bowl, Prequel, and The GaMERCaT right now, but thats all becuase those are still releasing. I have read other comics that are finished.

Oh, I completely forgot about Sandra and Woo. That's one of my favorites. I have delved into Housepets! from time to time, never got fully invested. I love Sandra and Woo because it's inspired by Calvin and Hobbes and has it's own unique approach.

Housepets and Faux Pas are my favorite two strips, but Sandra and Woo is definitely in my top 5.

The Sandman is an excellent series, (my favorite actually) but if I were to suggest some others I would probably go with Fables and Preacher.

I read Original Life, TwoKinds, SNAFU webcomics and VGCats alot.

I try to keep up with the Sonic the Hedgehog comic books by Archie whenever I can, but ever since the whole controversy that caused the book to be rebooted, I haven't really felt compelled to stay up-to-date with it.

I also read some webcomics like Carciphona, Off-white, and Vangard if that counts

I'm kinda waiting for Original Life to progress a little more before I read it again, I don't really like the wait between updates xD;

Last night one of my friends showed me a sci-fi horror romance comedy web comic called "Romantically Apocalyptic". I think you guys should really check it out, is has really fantastic art of a sci-fi horror setting followed by a touch of romance comedy at some points.

I just read through Beyond the Western Deep. It is Written by Alex Kain, the guy who co-wrote the game Dust: an Eylsian Tail. The art is also pretty good. http://www.westerndeep.net/

In addition to that, I got around to picking up the Mouseguard books as well. Also a good read.
