War Stories by Garth Ennis. Seriously, where's the love? I read "Dear Billy" the other night and it tore me apart. Ennis's war stuff is seriously some of the best comics i've read. And no one talks about it.

Girls was good too. That's what got me into them, but personally, I like The Sword better.

Eclipse Comics THE PROWLER...an old hard to find 80'S book. There were two LS that blew the roof off the house. It's about a vigilante from the thirties continuing his war on crime in Clint Eastwood GRAN TORINO fashion and his young protege. They fight a zombie-master in the first series and bust up a child porn ring in the second LS. It's just down and dirty bad ass stuff! John K. Snyder and Tim Truman.

Also, the comic OLD BOY, Not the dang movie!

G.I. Joe: Cobra by Mike Costa and Christos Gage. I think the fact that it's a licensed book scares people off, but it shouldn't, because it's fantastic.

"Shadowpact" was a favorite. Loved those characters.

"Mighty Avengers" when Dan Slott was writing it. It was the book that felt most like good old-fashioned Avengers fun, which we just haven't gotten much of since Bendis got his greasy mitts on the franchise.

"Nextwave: Agents of Hate" gets some decent love on here, it's true, but it was not nearly as loved as it should have been when it was out. Hell, I didn't even discover it until after the fact.

The David Hine/Philip Tan run on SPAWN. Specifically issues #150-163 and beyond. The "Armageddon" storyline can be purchased in two parts on amazon.com.

The Last of the Innocent has been excellent so far. It might turn out to be the best of the bunch.

I don't know anything about Spawn, other than that I hated the few Todd MacFarlane issues I read, but I've always thought Hine was an underrated writer. He seems to get a lot of work doing fill-in issues and event tie-in mini-series, but he makes the most of it. I really enjoyed Spider-Man Noir and his brief run on Detective Comics between Rucka and Snyder.

Dynamo 5. Fantastic series so far. Great characterization, dynamic art. It's just a fun comic ride.

What do you mean "so far"? Jay Faerber, the writer, has stated that he has no plans on doing anything further with D5 because "there just wasn't an audience for it".

Asterios Polyp by David Mazzucchelli is absolutely incredible but it's widely overlooked. It hardly fits the graphic novel mold and it's independently published but I still think it deserves a lot more recognition.

Also, Alan Moore's Promethea. It seems to be one of his only works that nobody has really read but IMO it's his best.

Power Man & Iron Fist, one of the most fun and entertaining comic series I read

Early days Moon Knight, up to right before he was taken by Terry Kavanagh

Yeah, Moench/Sienkiewicz Moon Knight is really good. Their stuff was pretty dark and edgy (but not in a stupid way) for a late-70s superhero book. I also liked the 2006 Moon Knight series, particularly the issues Charlie Huston wrote, and I'm glad he was featured in Secret Avengers too. Moon Knight's an underrated character in general. He seems to be frequently written off as a Batman clone but his personality, origin, and methods of heroism are much different.
