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!

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.

Right now I'm re-reading Justice. I can't explain why I think it is so cool. Maybe it's because I was hooked on Super Friends, both the cartoon and the comic growing up - and that Challenge of the Super-Heroes live action special on NBC. I can't believe I bought the individual issues, then the hardcover, then the softcover, then a few of the action figures. But the story is awesome! And it's the right size, too! All of the previous DC stuff Alex Ross did was the over-sized graphic novels with Paul Dini...

What's So Funny about Truth, Justice, and the American Way?

I love that story, even though it's only a single 40 page issue, it's still awesome

Gotham Central. I love the theme of what life is like for the cops who fight essentially what are Batman's villains without having Batman's abilities. Also introduced me to Brubaker and Rucka, two of my favorite creators.

Morrison's Batman and Robin for me. It's so well written, fun, vibrant, and colorful.

This is probably my number one as well for re-reading. Brubaker's Captain America run and Busiek's Avengers and Avengers Forever are up there as well.

The Dark Phoenix Saga, when I was in grade school this kid brought in the trade for it and I read the entire thing in free period and fell in love with the X-Men and Jean Grey right then and there.

I don't think I've ever re-read a comic. I barely have the time to read them once, let alone multiple times.

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.

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.

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