    I usually re-read something Starman related once a year, it may be an arc or several trades. I LOVE that series so it is easy to read again without getting tired of it.

    Several arcs of Wally’s run I will re-read from time to time: Dead Heat, The Return Of Barry Allen, Terminal Velocity, etc.

    Last, would be JSA related usually Prince of Darkness or The Return of Hawkman.

    Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's New 52 Batman run.

    The Green Lantern saga starting with Green Lantern: Rebirth up to Brightest Day.

    Batman/TMNT by James Tynion IV.

    All-Star Superman.

    Some Geoff Johns Superman stories (Secret origin, Brainiac, Last Son, Legion of Superheroes)

    Supergirl by Sterling Gates

    I also think Superman Smashes the Klan will be one I frequently revisit in the future.

    James Robinson's The Golden Age is something I usually read once a year; Priest's first thirteen issues or so of The Ray (with Porter on art); Grant Morrison's Animal Man run; the first few years of the Roy Thomas written All-Star Squadron.

    Lately I look over Abnett's AQUAMAN quite a bit.

    I reread FOR THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING often. Moore's Swamp Thing. Veitch and Acala's Swampy, too.

    Are you me?

    Seriously, I re-read STARAN at least once a year and try to re-read Geoff Johns JSA. DARKSTARS is a series I re-read about every 2 years.

    I don’t do it every year, but I find I revisit certain things far more than others:

    1. Starman, which seems like a popular choice.

    2. Sandman Mystery Theatre.

    3. Green Lantern, from Emerald Twilight through the present.

    4. Flash volume 2, the whole thing. From Baron to Waid’s second stint.

    5. 90s/early 00s Batman. I have a nostalgic soft spot for the bombastic crossover era. I’ll usually start with Contagion and read through War Crimes. Even though it’s remarkably different in tone, this will also typically lead into a Morrison re-read.

    6. The Reboot Legion, from Zero Hour through the end of The Legion.

    7. JLA, Morrison/Waid/Kelly.

    As you can tell, I got into comics in the 90s.

    Did we just become best friends?

    Starman is my favorite comic series of all time. It had everything.

    I re-read Multiversity a lot. I love multiverse shenanigans and it's a nice contained story to boot.

    I've been unhappy with the current run of The Dreaming, so I've gone back to the 'original' series, and I'm enjoying it a LOT.

    Would probably have to be Geoff John’s Green Lantern: Rebirth and his 2007 Justice Society of America run.
