The list author says: "After seeing various graphic novel lists, I kept asking myself "where are all the obvious ones?" So, here you go (mostly DC/Vertigo oriented.) I left off Alan Moore because I already have a list for him."
"Morrison is one of my favorite comic writers of all time, and this could be his best work, in my opinion. My biggest problem with Morrison is his endings never quite seem to work for me. It's extremely weird (too weird for some people) incorporating reality-bending concepts from Philip Dick, Robert Anton Wilson, H. P. Lovecraft, and numerous others."
"The team book that isn't a team book. 7 obscure DC heroes (the best known may be Zatanna) each get their own personal 4 issue miniseries within the greater interwoven story fighting the common threat of the indimensional Sidhe. A wonderful story, but once again, the ending just doesn't quite work."
"Awesome weirdness. Villians coming from a book. A book which appears on someone's skin. A painting that eats Paris. Is it illegal to turn a policeman into a toilet? And the baddest villian of the series is created from a misinterpretation of a nursury rhyme (the Candlemaker)."
"This series fluctuates between horror and fantasy. It's only very loosely connected to other DC titles, which doesn't hurt it at all. In fact, non-DC readers might prefer to ignore the connections, which are luckily few, and mostly in this first volume (Constantine and the Justice League)."
"Yes, the same Bill Willingham who writes Fables. This series started before Watchmen and Miller's Dark Knight Returns, featuring super-heroes who are not so goody-goody (i.e. violating the "comics code" that Marvel and DC followed for so long.)"
"Hey, it's Morrison, you know I'm going to love it. (Well, not necessarily, but in this case, yes.) A stand-alone story outside the DC continuity (an "Elseworlds" story). Completely feels like Superman."
"Cerebus... isn't for everyone. I've done (not very good) reviews for every single volume. 300 issues all written and drawn by Sim and Gerhard. And it's all one enormous story. Never been done before, probably never be done again."
"I'll have to write a full length review of this one later, since no one's done one yet. Supreme Power is the first series of Babylon 5 writer Straczynski's very mature (sex & violence) take on Marvel's Squadron Supreme, which itself was originally a parody of the Justice League."
"Controverial take on superheroes. Personally I like it, in spite of the creepy "Superman only hears what he wants to hear" concept. Some plot elements seem to be parallel with Watchmen (don't know if they meant to do that or not)."
"I used to own the first 84 issues of this series, but I sold them to a comic store because I wanted to remove some "dark things" from my life. (Still kept all the rest of my comics, though.) Nevertheless, it's a well-written series about a "magician" who causes death and destruction to everyone around him. Fun stuff! Okay, maybe that's a little harsh..."
"Based on Amazon reviews, I jumped straight to book 7, where it's supposed to get "really good." Eh, it's okay. Maybe it gets "really really good" later. (I have only 7 and 8 so far)[Edit: just got books 9 and 10. It DOES get better.]"
"All the books above this one, I completely recommend without reservation (well, except maybe Cerebus). This one and the next two, I still can't quite make up my mind whether I like them or not. This has almost no connection to the movie. Maybe I'm getting too old for this hyper-violence. I do like Millar's Swamp Thing run, though."
