I'm looking for graphic novels that have a begining, middle, and *gasp* end!For example, Watchmen has a begining, middle, and end. However, the trade paperback of New X-Men following a specific storyline does not really have a begining or an end.I already own:WatchmenV for VendettaThe SurrogatesFellGhost WorldThanks for any suggestions!

Yeah, the differences in terminology got lost somewhere along the way. Hopefully, all graphic novels will have a beginning, middle, and end...unless the writer and artist intentionally omitted one or more of those purposefully. Trade paperbacks are essentially collected editions of mini-series, maxi-series, and storylines from continuing series.As for my recommendations, I'm a Batman fan and I don't really read comics anymore, so you'll have to excuse the extra Battiness of this list:Batman: Arkham Asylum (Grant Morrison and Dave McKean...one of the best writers paired with a fantastic artist)Joker: The Wild (Kelly Jones art...pretty good Elseworlds Batman tale)Batman: Prey (here's a collected edition...this is a storyline from LOTDK; this set up that horrible, shitty Bane storyline back in the day, but the story itself is fucking awesome)

Unfortunately, I have to be the guy that says, "The Dark Knight Returns".Other than that, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is one of my absolute favorites. There are two trades, each is a complete, self-contained story. For you want to stay away from superheros, The Nightly News is a recent one I liked.

warning, random post:All-Star Superman by Grant Morrison is the perfect comic. I defy you to challenge this statement.

Wolverine: Enemy of State is a really good story arch in a trade paperback.
