Animal Man: Deus Ex Machina
DC: The New Frontier

Special mentions - Batman: Year One, Green Lantern: Rebirth, Infinite Crisis, 52, Superman: Up, Up and Away, JLA: Rock of Ages, Batman: Birth of the Demon, The Killing Joke

None of these are "graphic novels" in the strictest sense, but I'll go with DCU stories that are collected all in one volume.

1. All-Star Superman
2. Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?
3. Kingdom Come
4. Batman: Year One
5. Batman: The Long Halloween

Honorable Mentions: Batman: The Killing Joke, Superman: Secret Identity, Superman For All Seasons, Batman: Ego, The New Frontier (it's 2 books if you don't count the absolute edition)

Um I'm pretty sure you just saw him rate it number 1.

Re: Your top 5 DC graphic novels...
 
Batman: Gotham by Gaslight would be in my top 10.

Re: Your top 5 DC graphic novels...
 
I've always loved Elseworlds and what ifs, so I'll kick most of those out :p

1) Whatever happened to the Caped Crusader? (I know it was originally two issues in the series but it was collected in a tpb so I'm counting it)
2) Kingdom Come
3) Killing Joke
4) Justice Vol. 1, the other two volumes are alright but I absolutely fell in love with the villains all teaming up and kidnapping, banishing or just destroying the heroes in a single co-ordinated attack so none can call for help and it's just masterfully done. The other two volumes are meh compared to it.

Can't really think of a fifth I'd rank with those on my all time favorites list.

Re: Your top 5 DC graphic novels...
 
In no particular order:

Superman: Secret Identity
New Frontier
Kingdom Come
Superman Batman: Public Enemies
Batgirl: The Lesson

I'd rate it as being the greatest comic produced in the modern day honestly. I re-read it at least once a month.

Yes truly epic......it really conveys the importance of Superman among superheroes and mankind. Waid and Ross hit it waaay out of the park. I cannot imagine it being topped. I reread it and listen to the audio quite often. Current DC is leaving me wanting. :csad:
