For Deathstroke you can read his 2014 and 2016 run. And for Constantine you can read his stuff from justice league dark and his new 52

Madame Xanadu & The Omega Men are absolutely must reads. All the Justice League Darks ( do the crossovers involved, there completely worth it) I just wanted to give those 1st two b/c there hidden gems. Or at least, not mainstream yet both are highly awarded (Eisner etc) & rarely known of. I would add Nightwing The New World Order to that list too. JLD is no secret, I just love it & with the crossovers it’s all great reading. Hope u have time to get them read, enjoy!!!

Keep reading all the recommendations here @Jeffrey, but I would also recommend occasionally trying comics that are not just from recent years. Personally, as a comics fan, I feel that it has been very helpful to read comics of older eras, from times when the voice seemed very odd, sometimes even awkward. Getting a feel for the tone of comics from earlier ages really helps me understand the roots of the superhero genre. I also feel like it helps me understand modern comics more, seeing the full arc of how modern comics came to have the tone they do now.
