I'm not sure it's been totally forgotten but Tim Truman did several runs on GrimJack and Scout. These were some of my favorite bargain bin gems before I stopped collecting comics during the middle part of the 90's.

The ongoing series DMZ is one of my favorites

Agree 100%. It gets overshadowed a bit by other Vertigo series but DMZ, odd minor blip aside, has been quality from start to impending finish.

And a new addition to the list: Knights of Pendragon

Early 90s, Marvel UK, you're probably already thinking "OMG, he's a mad man". But no - this series is quality throughout. Written by one half of DnA (Marvel's superb cosmic books) and art by (the criminally underrated) Gary Erskine, this was a great combination of super-heroics, the Arthurian legends & eco-centric ideals that all added up to a fine 18 issue run. Shame that Marvel UK had to undergo a reboot at the time as the second volume was far too generic & pretty much missed the point of the first series.

One of my absolute favorite comics that seems to never be mention is the Maxx...

Honestly, I can really say there isn't another comic like it out there... it can be serious, funny, bizarre, straight-forward... innocent and dark... sometimes all in the same issue... The art was beautiful and the stories were amazing... Sadly, it's just one of those comics people are going to pick up and say, what the hell is this... and not even try to understand it...

Thanks to this thread (& Spaced!) i discovered The Light Brigade mini-series which was fantastic! Don't know how this slipped by me...

BTW-Couldn't agree more regarding Ostrander's Suicide Squad--essential reading (& one of Kevin Smith's favorites, for what it's worth!).

A recent one that I loved that may have passed people by.

Sweets -> sweets-5-issue-mini-t9672.html

Pretty much ticks all the wrong boxes for a mainstream comics audience: crime fiction, stylised art, indy sensibilities. This is however a great book, not quite a masterpiece but definitely worth your time.

Scott McCloud's Zot! is one of those series that seems to have disappeared into the ether. It started off as a merging of the kinetic 80's style of manga and classic superhero fare and then slowly morphed into a realistic take on fan culture and growing up.

As far as I'm concerned, it's a classic from top to bottom.

I've been on an Ed Brubaker kick recently. Not so sure about Fatale, but that's because it doesn't hold a candle to the incredible Brubaker and Rucka "Gotham Central", which if it'd paid more attention to the criminals would have been approaching "The Wire" for depth of character and narrative flow (only years earlier). An incredible series I reckon.

STORMING PARADISE

Image

A recent random pick up from my LCS's sale box turned out to be a pretty good, if harsh at times, read. Ending is a bit of a downer and the constant mixing of the art teams was kinda annoying (it was only 6 issues guys?) but overall a worthwhile purchase.
