Those aren't graphic novels... they're reprinted material... that makes them trade paperbacks...

Marvel has not created many graphic novels.

Re: Your top 5 Marvel graphic novels...
 
I'll take trade paperbacks then.

Retain the list I supplied. Some alternates:

1. The Trial of Yellowjacket
2. The Death of Jean DeWolffe

I also like the ultimates, and the extremis storyline from iron man.

If we're talking Collected Editions/TPB's and the like:

1. Astonishing X-Men Vol. 3 by Joss Whedon
2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
3. Invincible Iron Man: World's Most Wanted
4. The Infinity Gauntlet
5. Daredevil by Mark Waid - that whole ongoing series is awesome, but I know at least the first volume's been released as a TPB.

I'm more of a DC fan so I'm sure there are tons that I'm completely unaware of, but I really loved those.

1. The Sentry by Paul Jenkins
2. Earth X
3. Immortal Iron Fist vol. 1 & 2
4. Annihilation Vol. 1-3
5. Daredevil by Bendis (the whole run, start from the beginning, which was Daredevil 26. It's been collected in several ways, so whatever edition you'd like to try.)

Well, if you want to get technical with it...

1. The Sentry by Paul Jenkins is just genius.
2. Ultimates vol 1
3. Ultimates vol 2
4. Won't pick a specific volume but basically anything from the first 80 or so issues of Ultimate Spider-Man
5. Civil War

If you are going for just great Marvel stories, I feel like you can't go wrong with Marvels.

Max J Power 04-20-2013 06:40 PM

Re: Your top 5 Marvel graphic novels...
 
Same rule as I used in the DC forum: the whole story is collected in one volume.

1. Marvels
2. X-Men: Days of Future Past
3. Daredevil: Born Again
4. X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills
5. Fantastic Four: 1234

Re: Your top 5 Marvel graphic novels...
 
Born Again is good stuff. However, I think for maximum enjoyment, you should read the other Frank Miller Daredevil collections as well.

Speaking of Daredevil, I also really enjoyed Kevin Smith's run.

Re: Your top 5 Marvel graphic novels...
 
Marvel is tough; much of the best stuff is just collected from ongoing series,
So.......
-Marvels
-Astonishing X-Men Omnibus (Whedon)
-Captain America Omnibus Vol. 1 (Brubaker)
-Thor Omnibus (Simonson)
-Avengers Forever

MMMMM...Pancakes 04-21-2013 12:01 AM

Re: Your top 5 Marvel graphic novels...
 
Wow this was tough...

Daredevil: Born Again
Daredevil by Frank Miller Volume 2
Avengers: Under Siege
Thor: Dissassembled
The Ultimates 2: Grand Theft America

I feel so dirty by not mentioning a lot of great books.

JewishHobbit 04-21-2013 09:22 PM

Re: Your top 5 Marvel graphic novels...
 
Yeah. I forgot about Marvels. Its sequel, Marvels 2, was enjoyable as well.

Re: Your top 5 Marvel graphic novels...
 
As far as the better Marvel Graphic Novels, which would be individual original stories, the following would apply... in no particular order...

X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills
Super Boxers
Greenberg the Vampire
Daredevil: Love and War
Amazing Spider-Man: Hooky
Spider-Man: Soul of the Hunter

Notable mentions...

The Death of Captain Marvel
The New Mutants
Spider-Man: Spirits of The Earth
The Futurians

:yay:

If you need a list of reprinted material, any of the previous stuff mentioned is decent...

Re: Your top 5 Marvel graphic novels...
 
In terms of strictly GNs and not TBPs, X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills is my favorite. The Death of Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Soul of the Hunter were both also phenominal, though Soul of the Hunter requires you read Kraven's Last Hunt first, but it's worth reading both since they're so good.

Happenstance 04-22-2013 08:07 AM

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

Spider-Man: Blue
Ultimate Spider-Man: Power and Responsibility
Marvels
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Young Avengers: Sidekicks
