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

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.

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.

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

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.

Avengers: Under Siege
Thor: Dissassembled

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

Yeah. I forgot about Marvels. Its sequel, Marvels 2, was enjoyable as well.

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



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

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.
