Just skimming saw so snot mentioned that are among the best I've ever read. Probably stuff you read too, but if not:

Swamp Thing -- Alan Moore's entire run  (my all time favorite comic run.)
Animal Man-- Grant Morison's run ( starts slow but the build is so amazing that it may be my #2)
Sandman -- obv
B.P.R.D. -- may well be better than Hellboy proper, and I'm a big Hellboy fan
Ex Machina
Fables
(A lot from both of the above out there, but start at the beginning for Ex Machina to get the most out of it... For me Fables started getting good somewhere after the first or second arc when the war really started picking up)

Also another vote for the mentioned X-Force run

Second Transmetropolitain and Journey Into Mystery.

Mega Man is one of the best comics on the stands right now...no lie. IDW Transformers series is absolutely amazing as well.

Grab All of the X-men books starting with Nation X-Second Coming.

Added to my list.
Transformers is dealing with Megatron becoming an Autobot right?

A lot of good picks.

I wanna add Madman on to the pile.  And Red Rocket 7.  I wish Mike Allred would go back to indy comics.

I have not heard of those before. I will put them on my list to check out.

Have you read or flipped through his Book of Mormon graphic novel?

Is Book of Mormon a stand alone or does it follow another work?

I never knew Peter David wrote Wolverine outside of some crossovers.

PAD wrote a six-part storyline ("The Gehenna Stone") early in Wolverine's first ongoing series.  It's where Wolverine ditches the Patch cover, which was meant to hide the fact he was still alive, and learns to his dismay that he wasn't fooling anyone. :)

I think I may have read an issue of the patch stuff as a kid and thinking it had to be a clone with a different name or something because there was no way anyone would fall for an eye patch disguise. Do not really remember the details.

Should be fun to check out. David wrote a great Wolverine in his fight with the grey hulk.

Now that you mention clones.  There was a killer robot that was after Logan that looked like him.  That ran with a little killer Robot called Elsie Dee I believe it was.  That was a good arc. 

I'll run down some more stuff later for you Heroshit.

At the end everything can always be connected to clones lol

Valiant Comics circa 1990-1994

Jim Shooter's run's on
Solar, Man of the Atom
Magnus, Robot fighter
X-O Manowar
Harbinger
Rai
Archer and Armstrong
Eternal Warrior
Shadowman
culminating in
Unity -  still one of the best crossovers of all time if not the greatest barring Morrison's best stuff.

Alan Moore Miracleman
Gaiman Miracle Man

-- pretty much everything Moore has ever done.

I am a huge Valiant fan. Love all of thier classic stuff. Only one of those I  have not read yet is Shadowman which is near the top of my comic reading list after I finish Thunderbolts.

I loved Unity what Morrison crossover do you consider on it's level?

I have probably read Swamp Thing more then any other comic run. The library next to where I lived used to have the complet Alan Moore run so every year I would check out the Graphic novels and do a reread.

Also a big Sandman and by extension Lucifer fan though I have not read overture yet.

Just starting the Snow White arc in Fables. One of my favorites though it peaked with the end of the empire. I hope the upcoming end does not go the same way as Jack of Fables. He seems to be gearing up to slaughter a lot of the long running side characters.

Added

Animal Man-- Grant Morison's run
B.P.R.D.
Ex Machina

to my reading list.

Huge Miracleman fan is there any word on if Gaiman will finish his run now that Marvel owns the rights?

Added

Ostrander's Spectre.
Johns JSA
Johns Flash

to my reading list thanks.

It's literally his graphic novel interpretation of the Book of Mormon. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're a Mormon or actually interested.

Well I actually am a pretty big fan of various religous texts and tend to read them a lot as a hobby.

However never been a really big fan of any graphic novel adaptions of text works I read to this point.

Thanks

R Crumb once made a graphic novel version of the Bible.  It's in two volumes, beginning to end.  It was trippy, as expected.

Sounds like we have some similar tastes. Hope you enjoy those other runs as much as I did.
