I agree i enjoyed the main 7 issues of HOM as well, got into the Spiderman and Fantastic four HOM, and they were not very good.

A lot of people say that All Star Superman is some of the best Superman writing. Period.

How accurate is this?

it's very good...but very different from usual Superman fare from what I gathered

there's more humor and less overt action

Its pretty good. I think most people like the idea that the All-star series can explore the Superman mythos without any restrictions like canon. Things like :
Jimmy becoming Doomsday, Superman meeting Superman Prime, Clark in prison with Lex, Lois with powers, atract many of its readers. Not too mension his powers seem to be more over the top than ever before.

I just finished reading the series.

And yeah, his powers definitely seem pre-crisis. Things like easily making galaxy long jumps, and treating half a million tons like nothing certainly aren't things I could see our mainstream Clark doing with such RIDICULOUS ease.

Maybe under stress, or after a slight sun amp, or something.

But not like that.

I think that All-Star superman is some sort of homage to pre-crisis days, the kind of stories they write for it.

Nowadays I'd remove some of those, and replace them with stories like: All-Star Superman, Batman: Year One/The Long Halloween, Millar's run on Swamp Thing, Sinestro Corps War, Final Crisis (esp. Superman Beyond), Kingdom Come, Thy Kingdom Come, etc.

Since the thread is about 'storylines,' I'm limiting my choices to ones involving ongoing titles & characters being published regularly, and not one-off miniseries like Watchmen.

In random order:

Daredevil: Born Again/Elektra saga

The Dark Knight Returns

Kingdom Come

Spider Man: The Death Of Gwen Stacy

Crisis On Infinite Earths


(Next Five)

The Death Of Captain Marvel

Batman: Year One

Batman: Knightfall

Iron Man: Demon In A Bottle (and the sequel story with Obidiah Stane)

The Paul Dini/Alex Ross DC 60th Anniversary Specials
(Superman: Peace On Earth, Shazam: Power Of Hope, Batman: War On Crime, Wonder Woman: Spirit Of Truth)

Others:

Wolverine: Weapon X

Green Lantern: Rebirth

X-Men: Entire Grant Morrison run

X:Men: Dark Phoenix Saga

Thor: Ballad Of Beta Ray Bill & The Casket Of Ancient Winters

thumb up @ Batman RIP.
Though I enjoy *most* Sandman material, there are a few arcs I just couldn't get into.
Can't stand the original Watchmen series these days.

Well, so many years since I started this thread, I guess a few picks have changed and I have been able to read some new material.

My votes would be for:

1. The Dark Knight Returns- still

2. Supergod- (Warren Ellis)

3. Kingdom Come- still

4. The World Below- (Dark Horse)

5. Future Foundation- (Fantastic Four)



Honorable Mention-

Emerald Twilight- still

Irredeemable

Fall of Cthulhu

Elementals- Oblivion War

BPRD: Hell on Earth- Really enjoying this stuff.

The only one of those not in my top five is Secret Wars... Probably could replace it with either the IG or Ultimates vol 2.

2- Batman: The Long Halloween
3- Watchmen
4- Annihilation
5- Incredible Hercules (It wasn't as good as the above but in terms of just pure fun, it was the best. Best thing Pak ever wrote)
