Hey guys! I've always heard Lady Shiva was the best martial artist of the DCU second only to Batman, and have lately been pretty interested to read some of her best stories. Do you guys have any you'd recommend?

As a pure martial artist I'd say she's actually better than the bat himself. As for good stories featuring her;

Dennis O Neil's The Question

Robin: A Hero Reborn

Brotherhood of the Fist

I'd also recommend the Batgirl(Cass Cain) series. She showed up frequently in that.

Hope that helps.

No problem. She also had a couple nice appearances in the Pre-52 Birds of Prey. Can't remember the name of the arc at the top of my head. She also helped train Bruce(Batman) in KnightsEnd

Nice list.

She also appears in KnightsEnd, the third part of the Knightfall Saga.

To add to what other posters have already mentioned, you also have the Chuck Dixon Richard Dragon series, also some of her older appearences on Detective Comics, and her feud with Katana.

But really, you should take a look to Detective Comics #950 and keep from there until the current story-arc ends, because i can smell i very good Lady Shiva story in the air.
