    No mention of The Hiketeia yet?

    Most of the DC stuff I get is part of a series, but the first two Batman/TMNT crossover stories and the Supergirl TV show tie-in were pretty good.

    From DC itself:

    Watchmen
    JLA: Year One
    Dark Knight Returns
    Batman: Year One
    Kingdom Come
    All-Star Superman
    Mister Miracle
    Omega Men
    New Frontier
    The Golden Age
    Superman: Red Son
    Superman: Secret Identity
    Batman: Mad Love
    JLA: Earth 2
    Superman: Birthright
    Superman: Secret Origin
    JLA: The Nail
    Green Lantern: Willworld
    Lex Luthor: Man of Steel
    Wonder Woman: The True Amazon
    Batman: Noel
    Wonder Woman: Earth One
    Green Lantern: Earth One



    From Vertigo:

    Daytripper
    Death the High Cost of Living
    Brooklyn Dreams
    The Complete Moonshadow (neither of these two are currently at Vertigo but they were published there and the editions I have are from Vertigo)
    It's A Bird
    V For Vendetta
    Dark Knight: A True Batman Tale
    You said no single volumes of ongoing series, but Batman Year One is a single volume of the ongoing Batman series as it collects issues 404-407 of the run.

    Moonshadow was first published as a Marvel Epic book several years before it was reprinted at Vertigo.

    Yeah, I admit, I knew I was cheating with Moonshadow but the copy I have is Vertigo so that's how I think about it. Year One, though, may have come from the ongiong series but it was an entirely standalone arc with no connection to the ongiong series, as far as I know, and a completely different creative team so I'l make an exception for it.

    While I'd rather get her a full graphic novel for her birthday, I'll still check this out. Thank you!

    Keep your suggestions coming guys!
    Can physical comic books be still in good reading condition during my old age?

    I haven't read much so, for now, it's either The Killing Joke or Batman Year One. Each still has things I dislike from them so they're not perfect.

    OK.
    I can't believe I forgot about:
    Batman: Red Rain trilogy! Red Rain Blood Storm & Crimson Mist

    Kelley Jones was the perfect fit for these books.

    If the criteria is just stand alone stories regardless of continuity:

    Batman: Year One

    Watchmen

    Superman: American Alien

    V for Vendetta

    Superman: Secret Identity

    Kingdom Come

    Superman: End of the Century

    Justice League: The Nail

    Trinity

    Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia

    Superman: Birthright

    Superman/Batman: Generations Vols. 1-2

    Most of the Earth One books are pretty good.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    There is actually not a single thing I dislike about Year One. From writing to art, it is probably the most perfect comic I can think of.
