The story-arc called "Blackest Night" was a big deal in the GL books, 2 or 3 years ago when it was coming out, although I don't see anybody raving about it these days. (Maybe because the sequel, Brightest Day, went on for too long and destroyed its momentum.) That might be a good place to start with GL.

Probably the most "important" Batman stuff in recent times has been graphic novels -- the (original) Dark Knight, Killing Joke, Arkham Asylum... have you read those?

I don't really have an opinion abut the New52 titles; this weekend I bought Detective 1-6, but I haven't read them yet.

I have been enjoying the Red Lanterns story so far as well as New Guardians, I'd recommend both.

If you liked the writing in Killing Joke by Alan Moore. His stories: V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Swamp Thing, are really worth checking out.

Batman Hush, Batman Year One, etc are all good stories as well.

V for Vendetta didn't do much for me.

Loved the movie - the comic had way too many sub-stories - get me interested in the real story and then "waste" all those pages on something else... arrgh. Alan got it right when he tried a similar thing with Watchmen and the Tales of the Black Freighter substory.

Yeah I would have to agree he did go off on other things, but I enjoyed it. Though I think his best work is on Swamp Thing

Swamp Thing was amazing. Huge bonus points from me for doing a Pogo homage issue. But Alan didn't finish his Swamp Thing story. It is interesting after Swampy leaves Earth, but I kept waiting for some closure on the Earth bound plot threads, but, no... He left the series before getting back to those. What a cheater. Laugh

My fav Alan Moore story is the Bojefferies Saga, a 4 part backup in Flesh & Bones. Addams Family wishes it was half that funny.
