DC Comics First Star Trek run. It had all the elements of classic Trek and it included some very cool original characters as well.

I remember a DC Star Trek annual with art by Curt Swan. Wow, what good stuff!

One comic series I’ve (somehow) not written about on here that I loved was Sideways. It’s extremely Spider-Man, but that’s the point, and I thought it was just really fun. Sad to see it go.

I’ve got to say, I know I’m in the minority on this but I’m really enjoying what Tom King is doing with Batman.

I loved reading Batman and Robin. (Pre and post New 52) To me it is almost what I’ve always wanted from a Batman book. The classic duo of Batman and Robin solving crimes and mysteries together.

I also think Tom King’s Batman is great too.

Hey @epfender.28568, it’s near the top of my favorites list. But, anything Brubaker and Phillips do is usually great.

No particular order but these all have influenced me:

East of West - Johnathan Hickman
Deadly Class - Rick Remender
A.D - Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemirre
Kyle Higgins run on Nightwing
Denny O’Neil run on The Question

I guess it depends on how many issues mean it’s a favorite series vs a favorite storyline.
My all time favorite series is JLI (from Justice League through Jurgens’ Justice League America). It’s funny but with action and heart and it’s the first time I ever collected a whole series by tracking down back issues.
JLA
Batman New 52
Wonder Woman New 52
Locke & Key
Gotham Central
Immortal Hulk so far at least
Lazarus and just about anything Greg Rucka

I HIGHLY recommend James Robinson’s Starman. It’s an amazing book and a huge inspiration on me and my writing.

For a full series? Birds of Prey, original volume. I love it so much. The only other ongoings I’ve read and can think of that I like the whole way through (mainly because they only ever had one writer) are The Question and Azrael (both by Denny O’Neil)

Other favorites limited to specific runs include Perez’s Wonder Woman, Bates and Weisman’s Captain Atom (February and March of 1987 was a great time for comics), Dixon’s Robin and Nightwing, Waid’s Flash and JLA, and Johns’ Green Lantern.

And as a committed Bat-Nerd, I’m actually very picky about how I like my Batman stories, but runs that I like include:
Early Bill Finger Detective Comics stories
The '70s, especially Denny O’Neil’s contributions and Steve Englehart’s run
Marv Wolfman’s Batman run
Early Legends of the Dark Knight, also especially Denny O’Neil’s contributions
Dixon’s 'Tec
Hush
Dini’s 'Tec
Tynion’s 'Tec

On the subject of limited series, Crisis on Infinite Earths and 52 are great.

Never read Batman & Robin Eternal. Mostly because I haven’t finished Batman Eternal. I read half of it on a long plane ride and have mixed feelings.

Batman eternal has the entire batfam minus Bruce working together and it’s awesome
