Watchmen IS one of the best comics ever written along with The Dark Knight Returns.
The Killing Joke , one of the best Joker Stories, was also written by Alan Moore i think.

yes i was able to pick up some frank miller classics as well such the dark knight returns & year one. the killing joke is quite rare im afraid, but i do intend on snagging it. if im able to find it im probably gonna have to spend a bit. I could always get this, http://www.amazon.com/DC-Universe-St...9566996&sr=8-3 its a compilation with random alan moore stories he did for DC and features the killing joke

V, Watchmen, From Hell... Classics. The most impressive works of Moore IMO is how, like Miller in a different way, he have given deepness and a second life to all these comics. Spawn, Batman (Killing Joke is THE best Batman IMO...a little better than Darknight)... The Moore's Swamp Thing is just Amazing. The Prometheas too. And the Top10..... DAMN!!!! My fav comic writer with Neil Gaiman.

Alan Moore did Spawn? I want Swamp thing but it will cost alot to get all of them. What has Neil Gaiman done?

And Neil gaiman has made a lot of masterpieces too. Novels, Poems, Comics... The must have are the comics serie Sandman (my fav serie ever), the one-shots The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch, Violent Cases and Black Orchid and the novel American Gods.

There isn't a "best one" in my opinion. 3 really differents works. From Hell is just an amazing way to deal with this dark dark story. The graphic work is really grimmy and the narration is SICK. V is a really interesting political work with DOPE DOPE graphical job. But Watchmen is maybe my fav. Deep tale about the american super-hero myth. A classic.

Good reading
