When it comes to graphic novels I've only read Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Sin City Vol 1 and all of the Scott Pilgrim books (if those count).

I thought they were all very good. Watchmen and V for Vendetta are both amongst my favourite books in fact.

Maus is the only graphic novel to win the Pultzer prize. Or however you spell it. Of course it needs a mention. One of my favourites.

Not mentioning Judge Dread? Ah, you damn Yanks wouldn't know a classic if it got handed to you in a hamburger.

And now that I think about it. Do any of you know of a graphic novel where the main character's based on a relative? No? Well I do. Tank Girl's based on my mother. Ah-ha. But, you're all entitled to call bullshit. Because, why would any of you believe something on the internet without "a picture" to prove it so to speak.

Another one of my favourites.

I don't think you've ever read it.

Also, The Watchmen, no contenders possible.

Totally. It's an incredibly important, well planned, well executed book, but it's boring as fuck.

I liked the "Trigun" Animes never read the Mangas though.
My favourite Manga is "Hellsing" though.
