Twitter Question of the Week RESULTS: What's one comic story you can read over and over again?

Time to find out what your favorite comic books stories are!

Folks, the results are in, and this week, we had more responses than ever before! Welcome back to the Twitter Question of the Week Results! Every Monday, we ask our followers on Twitter a question about comic books and take their answers and place them neatly into this fine piece of art. This week, we asked, "What's one comic story/trade/graphic novel you can read over and over again and why?" It was a bit overwhelming this week, so we tried to grab as many new folks as possible for this week's edition!


What did the staff have to say?


There you have another week of answers about comic books. If you want to get in on the fun, make sure to follow us on Twitter where we post the question a few times on Mondays, and make sure to use #CVTQ when replying; otherwise, we'll have no clue you answered! If you really want to appear in this weekly article, make sure to answer why. Anyone can just say something, but you have to be able to explain your passion.

Do you have a response but don't have a Twitter account? Let us know who you would want drawing your life in the comment section below!

Grant Morrisons "New 52" run on Action Comics. There's just so much in those books, it can't be digested in just one or two readings! And just as importantly, I LOVE reading these books!

Blackest Night. Johns and Reis is a GODLIKE combination. Not to mention Flash bringing the hype. Can't think of a better combo in comics. Maybe Johns and Mahnke? Praise be Johns

the ultimate reread for me is Jaques Tardi's It Was The War Of The Trenches - must have read it a dozen times since I got it 3 years ago.

honorable mentions to go:

Frank Miller's Batman Year One and Dark Knight Returns

Hellboy's Conqueror Worm story arc

Captain America - Winter Soldier arc

Alan Moore's Watchmen

Millar's Superior

The entire Knightfall story, starting with Vengeance of Bane. It's been a very inspirational for me, seeing Bane and Batman's determination to push themselves to their physical and mental limits.

Fantastic Four (376 - 409) : "Rise of Doom" through "Strange Days" was a fantastic time for that comic... also "The New Fantastic Four" (FF #347-349) deserves a mention as well.

Annihilation, it's the one book I keep going to over and over.

This. I'd also offer two others;

1- Infinity Gauntlet
2- The Dark Knight Returns.

Old trades are damn near worn out.

The Dark Knight Returns I've probably reread more than any other comic. So many great quotes and characterizations. It was the first book that really made a fan of commissioner Gordon. "I think of Sarah, the rest is easy."

Others I've read numerous times include

  • Ultimates Vol.1 and 2
  • Batman: Year One
  • Watchmen
  • Empire by Mark Waid (quite possibly my favorite story he's ever done)
  • COIE is a must every year or two. One of the first comic series I collected in full and one of my first introductions to the DCU.

The Dark Knight Returns I've read it dozens of times and it gets better each time I read it.

I've read Luthor: Man of Steel and Superman: For tomorrow sooooo many times. I also like reading Weapon X: Adamantium Men a lot and I mean a lot.

I am appaled by the lack of Watchmen in these answers!

Definitely my top answer for this question, groundbreaking in it's day and has aged gracefully.

From Hell is a nice substitute for it.

3 way tie for me. 100 Bullets : The Counterfifth Detective, Batman Black Mirror and Justice. Each strikes a different note with me emotionally, Justice for being a great, beautiful and classic story. Black Mirror for what to me is the definitive story of Dick as Batman, not to mention James Gordon Jr creeping me out so much and finally the Counterfifth Detective for the noir feel and one of my favourite Minutemen facing off against one of my favourite villains.
