All of Jim Shooter’s Legion of Super-Heroes run. Great artwork by Curt Swan, Jack Abel, and George Klein. And a collection of villains second to none: The Fatal Five, Modru, The Legion of Super-Villains, and The Dark Circle. These were the best of the Superman family books at the time.

I’m taking Blackest night also.
Doom Patrol. Silver Age & Morrison & Gerard Way is good, prefer the latter tho.
Crisis on Infinite Earths
Kingdom Come
TNTT Wolfman/Perez.
The Killing Joke.
JLA Tower Of Babel
Any JSA I can get my hands on.

Superman: Exile (my fav Superman story)

JLAvengers (just so much fun)

Batman: The Long Halloween & Dark Victory
Batman: Year 3
Son of the Demon
Year 1

And The Crow.
I know it’s not DC, but it is my favorite book ever and I read it multiple times a year.

One every 3 months, I reread Tom Kings Batman from beginning to wherever it currently is. The series is better each time I read it.
