War Crimes is really good,definitely worth a read especially if you're looking for a Black Mask story.
And like R_R said, Four of a Kind is a good read too.
Should be able to pick it up for a few pound.

Has anyone here read Flashpoint? And if so, do you think it would be worth it to get the collected versions?

If you're just looking to get familiarized with Iron Man, I'd recommend My Monsters. It's a pretty good starting point. Except I've heard that the volume following My Monsters is shit, so stay away from that.

I'm already familarisared acquainted with Iron man the ones i'm looking for are of great batles or awesome plot like Iron man in the Ultimates or in comparision Batman: Venom

I'm basically just starting on comics/graphic novels, so I was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions for these characters:

1.) Nightwing
2.) Penguin
3.) Spider-Man?

Thanks a lot in advance.

For Spider-Man I'd definitely recommend Brand New Day if you're just starting on comics. Its reception wasn't overwhelmingly positive but I loved it, and you probably will too.

I'm brand new to comics/graphic novels too like some other guys here. Can I get some monthly series recommendations for the New 52? I'm currently reading:
-Batman
-Justice League
-Nightwing
-Batman & Robin
-Batman Inc

You can tell I need to find a few series that aren't Batman related.

Welcome to comics! Youll be dirt broke in no time! :D

If youre looking to expand from Batman stuff theres plenty of other great new52 titles.

Swamp Thing and Animal Man are two of the best of the entire relaunch imo and are both critically acclaimed.
Batman writer Scott Snyder pens Swamp Thing and the two tie in together very well. The first trade of Animal Man just came out so its easy to catch up.

Action Comics and Wonder Woman have both been pretty awesome. Both are new reader friendly and put a great new twist on the characters. Both well written with nice art.

Aquaman has been great. If the characters never appealed to you id still encourage you to check it out as Geoff Johns has done a great job in weaving the prejudices that some have against Aquaman into the narrative. Fantastic art and all in all a badass book.

Jeff Lemire, writer of Animal Man just took over Justice League Dark and his first issue was excellent so the rest looks promising.

I,Vampire is bloody good (ha), dont let the Twilight-esque covers fool you. This is dark and gory stuff.

All Star Western is a fun book. Great writing and atmosphere.

Green Lantern and Flash both good, Frankensteins a load of fun, new Savage Hawkman team did a good job, Demon Knights gets a good write up.

All depends on what uou like really.
