Great list, Brandon. It was hard to choose but here's a few of mine:

Knightfall
Identity Crisis
New Teen Titans The story arc where Adrian Chase was introduced and becomes the Vigilante
Kingdom Come The artwork in this was beautiful. The story really pulled me in.
The Flash #123 Flash of Two Worlds

I've not read all the comics in that list Brandon, but I must say I did love The Killing Joke, and man is the cover-art awesome on those. Especially DOA and Alex Ross's rendition of Captain Marvel.

So again, I've not read near enough to have a fair judgement of favorites, but so far I can definitely say that Identity Crisis is my current favorite.

My favourite comics of all time... that's tough. I can name a few:

JLA Tower of Babel

The New Teen Titans the Judas Contract This story arc hurts me so good. An excellent read.

...and of course I can't forget Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld. :wwlol: Particularly the final four-issue limited series. They did a collected series for DC Showcase Ameythst Princess of Gemworld but it's missing issues #12-16 from Vol. 2 which is a real shame.

Killing Joke is definitely a stand out. Sandman "Seasons of Mists" was a great depiction of Lucifer.. Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, "Anatomy Lesson" flipped the switch on the character forever. Grant Morrison on Doom Patrol "Crawling from the Wreakage". The Brotherhood of DaDa storyline was also brilliant. Speaking of Grant, the "Coyote Gospel" in Animal Man was great. I absolutely loved the Great Darkness Saga in Legion of Superheroes. One from my childhood was the summer crossover between the JLA and JSA that featured the New Gods during the satellite era, #183- #185.

Too many to choose from, thinking about these has got me remembering more and more.

Some of favorite DC comics of all time.
The Killing Joke Some of the most innovative artwork and storytelling I've ever seen. Timeless.
Identity Crisis Jumping on this wagon. Re-defined the genre for me.
Batman Hush
JLA Tower of Babel
Justice League International
Formerly Known as The Justice League
Arkham Asylum Living Hell A great story that gives you a deep look into Gotham's asylum for the criminally insane and features the origin of the Great White Shark.

Swamp Thing I love the Swamp Thing. The Vol. 1 stuff still has a special place in my heart but the mid-eighties run of Vol. 2 was where some of my favorite stories took place including the crazy ritual where Swamp Thing became a portal to hell.
Jack Kirby's New Gods Dialog is funky but the artwork and story is exploding with creativity.

The Forever People - 6 Issue Limited Series A fun story expanding on the origin of the Forever People.

Kind of a mixed bag but I just went with what I could remember.

Awesome and interesting choices! Not having read it before and seeing JLA Tower of Babel pop up a few times definitely has me thinking I should try that one out.
