    Any recommendations? The following are in my collection, are there any similar themed books out there that I might like? More of a TPB and graphic novel kind of guy, more on story than art these days.

    Rising Stars
    The Watchmen
    Sin City
    30 Days of Night
    Bone
    Preacher
    Akira
    Punisher

    I don't really see a theme.

    I'd say

    The Exterminators
    Y: the last man
    100 bullets
    DMZ
    The Invisibles

    Ya, I don't seem to have a coherent collection, I usually just get recommendations from people. It's tough though, cause there's also so much shit out there too. Are all the ones you mentioned completed storylines?

    They all have TPBs. The only one I'm not 100% sure on is DMZ. But, I know it should since they have completed a bunch of storylines.

    It's not a TPB or a graphic novel but I would give She-Hulk a shot. I recently started reading Moon Knight and it's really good too.

    Cable & Deadpool is next on my list.

    I'll second that emotion, She-Hulk is hilarious, The current and previous runs are great. You gotta start at the beginning though, kinda hard to follow if you just jump in, lol..

    i'll second Y: the last man...it's not finished but it has 3 issues to go (60 total, good luck getting the singles of 1-5).

    i always whore out robert kirkman, so give The Walking Dead or Invincible a shot. Invincible is a knockout indie super-hero book and the walking dead is a soap opera with zombies and uber-violence.

    Other then that, my other top reads are Ex Machina, Cable & Deadpool, Punisher MAX, and marvel's ultimate line of comics.
