    Ask me this every day and the answer may change slightly, so listing the suspects that could be the answer on any given day.

    The Incal by Jodo & Giraud (Moebius)
    The 6 Voyages of Lone Sloane by Philippe Druillet
    Doctor Strange by Ditko & Lee
    Bone by Jeff Smith
    Planetary by Ellis & Cassady
    The Parker adaptations by Darwyn Cooke
    The New Frontier by Darwyn Cooke
    Fafhrd & the Gray Mouser by Chaykin & Mignola
    Conan by Busiek & Nord
    The Fourth World by Kirby
    Sleeper by Brubaker & Phillips
    Finder by Carla Speed McNeil
    Sandman by Neil Gaiman & company
    Metamorphosis Odyssey by Jim Starlin
    The Spirit by Will Eisner (pretty much anything by Eisner really)
    Fax from Sarajevo by Joe Kubert (pretty much anything by Kubert too)
    Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai
    Manhunter by Goodwin & Simonson
    Spectre by Ostrander & Mandrake
    Flash Gordon by Alex Raymond (strips not comic books but still one of my favorite comics ever)


    If I had to pick one of those today, right at this moment, Bone, but who knows what tomorrow may bring for an answer.
    -M
    Comic fans get the comics their buying habits deserve.

    The Dark Knight Returns is the best comic book ever written and drawn by a human being.
    All-Star Superman is probably second best.
    On that note we can do down the Miller and Morrison list. Miller on Daredevil is one of the first things I ever read and it's still excellent today. Morrison's run on Batman is beautiful all the way through. Also Morrison on Animal Man and JLA.

    Then there is Kirby. I think the Fourth World stuff and Fantastic Four are the best. Grab up as much of that as you can. Read it in order, read it out of order, just grab up what you can and enjoy the art and the ideas and stories.

    My all time favorite story line is the elseworlds tale batman Superman generations. Just volume one. Volume 2 was ok but number three was awful.

    God, so many. Well one of my all time favorites for DC WAS/IS Millennium crossover another was Zero Hour. Any and all of the Alan Grant/Norm Breyfogel Batman stuff. Many, many more from DC. Marvel, well, let's see. Loved the original and 90's Clone Saga. My absolute favorite spider-charecter is Ben Reilly. Loved the Midnight Sons line from marvel in the early 90's. The Age of Apocalypse was a great X-men run. Fatal attractions of course, had left me with my jaw on the ground.
    I always enjoy rereading Spectacular spiderman 200, the Death of Harry Osbourne, very touching ending.

    Based on some of the comments I have just ordered Avengers Forever. Good timing too, because I already own Maximum Security and was going to read it soon. This way I will read AF first and then MS.

    Some of my favorites in Marvel are Secret Wars I (the original), Infinity Gauntlet (including the build up), Captain America's Winter Soldier storyline.

    Some of my favorites in DC are Superman Red Son, Batman The Long Halloween, Identity Crisis + Infinite Crisis.

    Keeping it to superheroes...

    My lord this is hard. I keep coming up with something then immediately remembering something different and changing my mind. I'm going to answer with whatever pops into my head first without changing it, meaning I probably won't even agree with my own list in about 10 minutes after posting:

    Event: My favorite event will probably always be DC One Million. Straight up wacky brilliance. I bought the Omnibus awhile back... not every #1,000,000 issue was a winner, obviously, but as a whole, it's solid all the way through. Also, I long for the days when you could get a linewide event over and done with in a single month.

    Favorite Run: Busiek's Avengers. Throw in Avengers Forever, too. I grew up loathing the Avengers (I came in during the Sersi/Tank Top Giant Man era, and I could never get into it). I thought Heroes Reborn was my ticket to jump in on the ground floor until I read the first issue and a bit of me died. But I was all in on Marvel's Heroes Return initiative, and boy did it pay off. Straight up brilliance.

    Favorite Book: I'll always love Flash volume 2 because it's so consistently excellent over such a long period of time -- Baron/Messner-Loebs, Waid, (briefly Morrison/Millar), back to Waid, then Johns. That's a pretty stout 225 issues right there, and it's probably my favorite long-form re-read. I can spend a month pouring through the whole volume without it dipping much*.

    *Ok, I usually stop after Johns leaves. What comes after isn't great. But #1-225, I tell ya. Gold. Outside of probably Hellblazer, I can't think of another series I've read that's so consistently good for so long.

    Favorite Mini-Series: The Golden Age. I don't feel this is talked about enough. Everyone in the mid-90s was Kingdom Come this, Kingdom Come that, and I'm over in the corner reading The Golden Age like the seminal work of the decade that it is.

    At Marvel? Kieron Gillen's Journey into Mystery, Brian K Vaughn's Runaways, Greg Rucka's Punisher, Jonathan Hickman's Secret Warriors, Brian Michael Bendis's Ultimate Spider-Man, Warren Ellis's Thunderbolts. There's a few more I'd add if I truncate them: Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force, ending with the Dark Angel Saga, for one. Mark Waid's Daredevil, ending... before he moved to SF, I think.
