My Favorite Comics or graphic novels

I'm not a big comic reader but what I have read I do like. It's fun escapist fantasy or fun satire on life.
1
Judge Dredd (comic)
The futuristic judge jury and executioner in a society that can no longer handle or even support democracy or a legal system as we have it now. Judge Dredd was the most famous of these Judges and fought everything from the Soviet Judges, mutants, serial killers and even demons. He is the law and don't gaze into the fist of Dredd.
See the full review, "The Judges: The scary thing is that they could be a reality someday.".

Dark Empire Graphic Novel
A story so good and that clicks of the Star Wars of old, it should have been a movie. Luke Skywalker explores the Dark Side of the force while the new Alliance fights off the Empires newest War Machines capable of planetary destruction. The watercolors are annoying but the story rises above it.
See the full review, "A better title would have been "Episode VII" A better idea would have been to make this a movie".
3
Iron Man (comic)
Billionaire weapons builder dons a suit of powered armor that can fly, shoot lasers and battle evil doers. Started great in the silver age with sci fi stories before having Iron Man battling boardroom bad guys, evil corporations with their own suits of armor and even alcholism. Iron Man was fun. Goofy but fun.
See the full review, "Iron Man-Iron Man. Does whatever his armor lets him do! Can he swing, from a web? No.".

G.I. Joe (comic)
Whether you saw it as a big toy catalog or just dismissed it out of spite from it's childish cartoon, GI Joe from Marvel had plenty of memorable stories, some really good solid characters and plenty of action. You'd be surprised how lucid it could be sometimes for such a silly premise.
See the full review, ""You will soon see the distinct advantages of having no scruples whatsoever!"".
5
Watchmen
The all time king of Graphic Novels has Alan Moore's story of a nuclear countdown in a not too dissimilar 1985 where costumed heroes have been outlawed. Very interesting and in depth and needs to be read at least once.
See the full review, ""The freightors murderous onslaught had surprised us"".
