Was wondering if anyone on the board with their infinite knowledge could give me some new books to read. Some of my favorites titles are Punisher MAX and Walking Dead and Nemesis ; gritty/dark/twisted kind of thing, any help?

@LifePool: For gritty/dark/twisted, I'd probably recommend Desolation Jones. By Warren Ellis and J.H. Williams. There's a review of it on the page that sums it up fairly well.

The Sandman

Default recommendation. It's almost always suitable.

The very first volume of "Crossed" with Garth Ennis writing.

Or the original O'Barr 3 issue mini of "The Crow" from back before it got all moviefied.

Hellblazer: Original Sins <----- Check out Constantine, its the perfect time to jump on as they are now releasing them chronologically.

And if you like Nemesis you may want to check out other Mark Millar stuff .... I recommend The Ultimates

Hope this helps!
