    1Watchmen suggested byTristan Cannon
    Why wouldn't this be number one?

  • 2The Dark Knight Returns suggested byTristan Cannon

  • 3Batman: Killing Joke suggested byAustin Devine
    Do we really need that many Alan Moore novels? Watchmen's gonna be number one. How about some diversity?

    More of a series TBH. Great, but not really a "graphic novel".
    In the far off land of Toronto, Canada, Scott Pilgrim is dating a High Schooler. Scott is dating Kives Chau, as Chinese girl who attends a Catholic School. He then meets Amrican Romana Flowers and begins to date her, two problems: 1: He didn't break up with Knives first, and 2: In order to be with Romona, Scott must beat her seven evil exs. A grou
