    Amazing book - visually and in it's story. Easily one of my best trades.

    Are there some other trades that are as good as (or close to) this one? DC or Marvel. I already own Batman Year One, The Dark Knight Returns and most of the sale/leob batman stuff.

    I'm mostly looking for good stories, the art isn't as important to me, though it might be hard to look at anything else after reading Kingdom Come.

    On the Marvel side, you may want to look at:

    Marvels-Alex Ross art also, looks at significant events in the Marvel Universe from an ordinary reporters point of view

    Earth X- Marvels version of Kingdom Come, Marvel Earth in the future, populated by mutants, I like this story more than Kingdom come, much more complex and profound, it digs into lots of Marvel history, but the art is not even close to Ross, though Ross does some covers and sketches.

    Kingdom Come is one of my favourites also!

    I'd say anything that has Alex Ross to do with it, purchase it :p

    I'd recommend (TPB);

    Watchmen (if you've already read it, read it again)
    Batman - The Killing Joke
    Ultimates (v1) DC
    Hulk: The End
    Starman - Sins of the father
    JSA - Black Reign

    Just some of the good stuff.

    I there enough action in Watchmen, because without action or humor I get bored. I maybe want to buy Watchmen: Absolute Edition.

    The 100 bullets serie has good reviews at amazon. I have the first part, but I haven't read it.

    You won't get bored with the Watchmen. It is easily the best comic ever written.

    Ever.

    picked up the Earth X soft cover trade yesterday. do the other X trades (universe and paradise) have the silver surfer in them?
