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

    Marvel has not created many graphic novels.

    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.)

    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.

    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.

    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

    :yay:

    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.
