    Every so often I re-read the Hawaii years of Superboy (also including his origin before), which I think were very good. Original Young Justice and Impulse which I'm more mixed on for plot (and I'm not always fond of YJ humor), but have some great character stuff. First arc of 2006 Blue Beetle, which is great. Occasionally the 1986 Blue Beetle. Certain parts of the satellite League. The silver age Flash (and Kid Flash) and Elongated Man. The years of Teen Titans when Perez was still there (especially love Donna's wedding issue). Dixon years of Nightwing and some of the Robin, too (especially like when Steph is there or relationship with father - not so fond of the boarding school setting). Gotham Academy, sans the Yearbook issues. Some '70s Robin in Detective Comics or Batman Family, though it's writer-dependent. The Cheshire Contract.

    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.
    All of this plus generally:

    Nightwing- Dixon's Run and Seeley with Rebirth
    The Question- O'Neil Run
    John Constantine: Hellblazer- Any of it, but Dangerous Habits is a Particular Favourite
    Lucifer
    Sandman
    Wally West deserved better than Heroes in Crisis

    Pull List:

    DC: JUSTICE LEAGUE, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY, ACTION COMICS, LEVIATHAN, LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH

    MARVEL: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, VENOM, WEB OF VENOM, ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, DAREDEVIL, HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X, FANTASTIC FOUR

    BOOM STUDIOS: BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL

    Various stories from the Legion of Super-Heroes like Superboy's Legion, the Universo Project, an Eye for an Eye, etc.
    PAD's Young Justice.

    As time goes on, I increasingly find the hopeful future of the LSH setting more and more useful in keeping sane.

    There are some really well known books I could mention like the Watchmen for example... but that's no fun...

    Less known books

    1. major bummer super spectacular
    The entire 15 issue series originally published by dc but cancelled fast as didn't sell well. Later released by vertigo.
    Easily my favorite comical and satirical superhero book. DOUG MAHNKE art and just amazing fun writing! I've read this many times.


    Superman Transformed
    Not just the tpb that led to the huge blue superman arc but the whole arc from final night to Millennium giants to superman forever. About 80 issues.

    Superboy Trouble in Paradise (90s Superboy)
    Number of years ago I reread the Death Reigh Return arc of Superman and was reminded how much I loved that version of superboy. I hunted around but seemed like no tpbs were made from super boys solo run in Hawaii... so I bought the first 13 issues of his run from mycomicshop. Fun nostalgia run and i wanna collect the whole 100 issue run but dont want all floppies... but dc doesnt seem to have plans to release more trades. Stuck rereading the first 13 issues

    Currently I am rereading Brubaker's and Rucka's 'Tec & Batman run respectively as well as their spin-offs (i.e. GC Central, Turning Points, etc). Whenever I get a hankering for really good crime driven Bat-stories I always go back to these.

    Then of course is Morrison's Batman, I always get more out of it every time I reread it.

    John's Green Lantern when I get in the mood for DC cosmic.

    Waid's Superman Birthright and Morrison's All Star Superman when I want my Superman done right.

    Tomasi's Batman & Robin and Superman/Super Sons run when I miss my parents.

    Ah,Denirac, good choices. Dangerous Habits is the highlight of Hellblazer, for me. Lucifer (first series) is very entertaining. It seems like it's been a long long time since I've last read Sandman. Maybe for this summer's big read.

    These days mostly pre-Crisis and out of continuity type stuff.

    I personally loved the Family Man as well, Dangerous Habits is certainly one of the best but The Family Man is awesome, plus I love that they reference that arc during Sandman: The Dolls House, He's meant to be the Guest of Honour at the Serial Killer Convention but has gone missing.
