(no particular order)

Batman: Dark Victory
The New Frontier
Global Frequency
Fantastic Four: Unstable Molecules
Madman: The Oddity Odyssey


If Ostrander's Suicide Squad and The Maxx were considered graphic novels, I may have made some substitutions, but I'm pretty good with this list

Maxx has been reprinted as TPBKs but not Suicide Squad (superb book by the way) - it was supposed to get the Showcase treatment a while back but was cancelled.

Great. Another "nostalgia-naut". No wonder he didn't get past the civilian stage.
