Just got Death of Superman and Return of Superman, I need to get the one in between that before I can read return.

Knightfall is essentially the same type of story isn't it? Are there any other stories like that with other heroes? like the legacy aspect that heroes bring.

Emerald Twilight/New Dawn is kind of like that and it's Green Lantern related.

I really recommend the new Thor: God of Thunder series. I didn't think I'd enjoy it nearly as much as I have. The art and story are both quite good and it was one of the only times, recently, where I had to actually struggle to put it down and to to bed or I'd have just kept reading.

The God Butcher stuff was fantastic, but i felt the Malekith arc was pretty weak.
Seems to be back on track with the Roxxon story.

Does anybody know some good Shazam Comics besides Geoff Johns retelling and Jeff Smith´s Monster Society of Evil ? I was told there are a couple of Shazam books set outside the regular Dc continuity which came out a couple of years ago. I have no idea how they are called,though.

Looking for general recommendations. I've read pretty much all the 'key' Batman GNs out there (don't fancy TDKSA though) and a few more obscure ones, so all I can really think of is Dark Victory; is it worth picking up?

I'd also like to read a few more stories by Dini, as I loved his Streets of Gotham series.
