Recommmend A Comic

I thought I would set up a thread for posters to ask for reading recommendations based on interest or help figuring out a comic that he/she is thinking about but cannot place. To start off I am looking for a story that has Hal Jordan and Wally West work together showing their relationship. What out there in comicdom showcases Hal and Wally together?

Only story I can recommend from memory is the "Gorilla Warfare" crossover between their two books. It occurs in Flash vol.2 #69-70 and Green Lantern vol.3 #30-31.

Grodd and Hector Hammond, during Hal's tenure with JLI, huh? About a year and a half before Kyle and the Parallax fiasco. Sounds interesting. I was looking for their specific interaction as Kid Flash/Green Lantern, Flash III/Green Lantern, Flash III/Spectre II, but yes their interaction as Flash III and Green Lantern is the one I am most interested in. Thanks.

I will put it on the back burner for now. I still need to finish Batman#1 and 2 stories. Still have Hugo's 3rd appearance and the two stories from #2 to read as well.

I recommend Detective Comics #434 & 435 as well as Batman#276.

You know how to track them down.

I love it. And it's still breaking the top 10 lists for the New York Times best graphic novels.

Has anyone read Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul(2008 )? I was wondering if it was any good? I have the run surrounding it but usually avoided story arcs that weave through multiple titles.

I liked it; the TPB did a good job of collecting the stories.

Damian, Dick, Tim, and I think Cassandra was in it... good story.

Agreed. Bone is just awesome.

I also think you guys should check out Scott Pilgrim if you haven't yet. It's an amazing series that gets better with every read. A perfect blend of comedy, action, romance, slice-of-life, video games, everything and then some. It's also one of my biggest inspirations, because of this series and others, I decided I wanted to make my own comic series one day, something I'm still working towards and it's all thanks to this wonderful series.

Seriously, check it out.
