That's all I think of right now. Any stories that YOU guys out there suggest that I read? I'm currently reading JLA/Avengers, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and other random back issues. I'm on the look out for Superman: Red Son, Birth of Venom, Pax Romana, and Blankets. I'll probably add more if any good stories come to mind.
