    Glad to help.

    If you'r looking more for a specific genre/style/hero/team don't hesitate to ask.

    My lust don't contain much super-hero compared to the quantity that exists.

    And by curiosity, what are you gonna try out first ?

    Most of my comic books and graphic novels are also not superhero related, although most are at least fantasy or sci-fi.

    If you give us some genres/general reads/views (novels and films for example) then we can probably be of more use

    Charley's War (P. Mills / J. Colquhoun) - 10 volumes - Titan Books
    Frontline Combat (Various) - 10 volumes - Gemstone
    Northlanders (B. Wood, various) - 7 volumes - Vertigo

    Action/adventure - all genres(police, detective, thriller, war, spy, history etc.), psychological, social, philosophical. No S.F. and Fantasy.

    I specified above some genre I read. I dig almost every genre, except manga, S.F. and fantasy.

    Some of my favourites;
    Y: The Last Man
    Marney the Fox
    Blankets
    Charley's War (not an enjoyable read as such, although that art is beautiful, but a good one)
    James Bond comics (Dynamite) are all at least decent, some are wonderful (Felix Leiter arc for example, and the original VARGR/EIDOLON).
    DEMO and Local, Local being the better of the two.

    Great choices.
    There are a few that I see missing from my own list.
    I might add a few.
