Brian K. Vaughn's "Y: The Last Man" is a tasty, tasty soap opera, and if you stick them all together they're basically a graphic novel.
Frank Miller's "Sin City" series is excellent in every way, shape, and form. His "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" is a defining classic in the medium, and its sequel, "The Dark Knight Strikes Back" is, while not as good, still very interesting (especially in terms of the art) and innovative (not to mention politically timely).
I'd also recommend, in a very different vein, Daniel Clowe's "Ghost World."
I second both parts of "Maus."
Oh, and Marjane Satrapi's "Persepolis" is fantastic.

The only comic where Tesla is a superhero.
I like Morrison best when he's not dealing with Superheros. Or, at least when he's not putting Superheros through almost the exact same thing again and again and again. The leaping around the panels was clever when he did it for Animal Man. It was expected and kinda tiresome when he did it for Zatanna.Zohar wrote:Personally, I dislike Grant Morrison. It always seems to me like he has a semi-interesting idea and then he tries to create a story to show it off. I know other people love him, but I don't think I read one thing of him that I liked. It all seems gimmicky, to me.

I haven't read Annihilation Conquest yest, but I've heard good things about it.
DC's Infinite Crisis is very good-I've read the first half of it. The lead up story the Rann-Thanagar War is also pretty damn good.
Some of the new Captain America stories are also very, very good.
I've heard good things about Planet Hulk, and some not so good things about World War Hulk, but I still am planning on reading both.
