That's it for me since I haven't read that many.
1- Kingdom Come
3- Year One
5. Year One
4. Batman: Earth One
3. Batman: Death by Design
2. Batman: Noel
...and I cannot think of a favorite, right now. I'll edit this later, when I have more time to determine the one I enjoy the most.
Oh, forgot about Batman Noel.
Assuming we're including TPB's in this...
1. All-Star Superman
3. Superman: Red Son
4. Kingdom Come
5. Superman: Birthright
The Killing Joke
Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth
It took me a while to warm up to it for some reason but I really like Batman Noel
Green Lantern Rebirth
Bonus Aquaman the thirst.
Not sure about the order...
Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War
Batman: Dark Victory
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
I'll make a confession too: I still haven't finished Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns
I'm just gonna say I thought Sinestro Corps War was awesome.
1.) Kingdom Come
2.) Arkham Asylum : A Serious House on Serious Earth
4.) Justice League : The Nail
5.) Lex Luthor : The Unauthorized Biography
1) Kingdom Come
2) Superman: Red Son
3) Batman: Dark Victory
4) Superman For All Seasons
5) Identity Crisis
Forgetting Watchmen & Sandman for a moment and just sticking with the mainstream DCU these are mine in no particular order
New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract
The Flash: Blitz
Batman: Strange Apparitions
Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?
JLA: Rock of Ages
The entire run, starting from the beginning. It's available in several different trade forms.
I always thought about getting Kingdom Come how do you rate it.
One of the Greatest Graphic Novels of all damn time.
1.Kingdom Come (Always wanted it need to get it I know)
3.Batman: Year one
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.
Batman: Gotham by Gaslight would be in my top 10.
I know it's your opinion but why have two Superman origins kn this list?
-Dark Knight Returns
I've always loved Elseworlds and what ifs, so I'll kick most of those out
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.
In no particular order:
Superman: Secret Identity
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.
