Dull? I thought Transmetro was a riot! That and Planetary definitely represent Ellis' pinnacle period for me.
It's been a while, but I just remember treading through the first dozen issues of Transmetro and thinking, "Okay, the future's weird.  This city's weird. I get it already. Can something actually happen now?"  I liked the issue with the photographer waking up after being frozen for years, but that was about it.

Another one for me. Kraven's Last Hunt.

To me a good Spider-Man story has humor, this...I just think J.M. DeMatteis gets Spider-Man and Batman confused. That's the only way I can explain the way he wrote Spider-Man.

^^^I liked that one.

I was never fond of The Long Halloween.

That's my favorite stand-alone issue for sure. But I felt like the ideas were usually fun and interesting, and it picked up urgency and narrative unity more as it went, with the world & players already kind of established. I also am a big Hunter S Thompson fan, which helps no small amount. Wouldn't mind doing a reread now that we're talking about it....

Ah, another one that just occurred to me: not really a fan of most of Peter David's Hulk.
Truten forever!
