I have Brainiac. Good read but damn short. Think I'm gonna pick up Last Son today. I hear For Tomorrow is amazing as well

Wait a sec. I'm not 100% but I think the Last Son trade I just bought has the Brainiac part in it as well. It looks like it at least

Superman: For All Season is wonderful, and often goes overlooked these days. It's a nice callback to the days when Jeph Loeb was good.

I liked what Johns did with marrying all the disparate Brainiac interpretations in that arc, but the Pa Kent thing was lame.

If you can get ahold of any Gotham Central trades, read those. Still among the best things DC's ever published.

If people are after stuff with Alex Ross' artwork, then I'd suggest:

JLA: Liberty and Justice
Superman: Peace on Earth
Batman: War on Crime
Shazam: Power of Hope
Wonder Woman: Spirit of Truth
JLA: Secret Origins

All written by Paul Dini.

JSA Libretiy Files

Great little Elseworlds with the JSA in the 1940's and 50's. Featuring Batman, Dr. Midnite, Hourman, and the Man of Steel. Lots of twists and turns. Awesome, awesome story.

Check out the Hawkworld mini series by Tim Truman. No one really talks about it, either due to the crazy continuity issues that followed in it's wake or because it was promptly ignored when Geof Johns re-introduced Hawkman in the early 2000's. But it's one of the best comics I've ever read. Beautifully illustrated and powerfully told. And the on-going Hawkworld series that came out after it, written by John Ostrander, is pretty damn awesome too, despite the continuity issues.

The TPB is a little difficult to find, but you can still get the three individual issues for pretty cheap. And the Hawkworld on-going issues are also really cheap.

Hmmm, no one's mentioned it yet but the trade that got me interested enough in trying DC (after 13 or so years of reading ONLY Marvel) was Identity Crisis. It has all the major heroes, some good villains, and a very heartfelt/breaking story. It sucked me in big time. That led to me trying Green Lantern Rebirth and they both led to me trying the Infinite Crisis stuff, which really got me into DC.

Comics are an expensive and sad hobby that will either make you a cynical ass douche or a snobbish ass douche.....or both.....I felt it necessary to warn you before you get in too deep to get back out.

I love Green Lantern Rebirth. But other than Secret Origins I have yet to pick up the other Green Lantern trades by Geoff Johns.

I loved Sandman: Prelude and Nocturnes. I really love Death at the end and the way he writes how Death acts.
