I'm hungry for more cosmic comic stories!

I've always loved the cosmic scene over at DC Comics. I think it's pretty well-known around here that I'm a HUGE Green Lantern fan and have been for a very long time. I'm also a big fan of Darkseid and the New Gods. Superman's cosmic stuff has always been great. And I'm one of the only fans of Darkstars. Crisis on Infinite Earths was one of the greatest tales ever told, IMO. And anything involving the DC Multiverse I'm drawn to.

Over at Marvel I'm a big fan of Captain Marvel, Adam Warlock, Quasar, Nova, and Thanos. The Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity War are 2 of my favorite stories of all time. And despite everyone seeming to grumble about it, I REALLY like War of Kings.

So considering all that. What are some great cosmic comics that I'm missing out on? Stories that follow that same sort of grandiose storytelling style of the stuff I mentioned above?

Although a classic, I've always thought that was "over sold" as being "Great" (But I feel the same about WATCHMEN, sooo ...)
 Grin

Not sure about "grandiose" but the original Surfer title, with art by the true master - John Buscema, was a classic (though not too deeply set in space).



(of course SILVER SURFER also had a huge run later)

I enjoyed the 2 HERCULES limited series set in space by Bob Layton. '82 and '84. Those were fun.



The GUARDIANS of the GALAXY had a great run for a while in 2008 that was really good -



and if you chose to take a chance on 90's Marvel *shiver* that same title had a long run of issues starting in 1990, but I never read any of those



And of course, if you truly enjoy Starlin's cosmic stuff you have to read DREADSTAR!!! In that series, he even self-stole Thanos back. Well, a 2.0 version of his character anyway.



EDIT -
And oh yeah, Almost forgot
OMEGA MEN.
Loved that DC series

Thanks. Gonna have to check some of those out. Dreadstar, especially sounds good if it's Starlin writing Thanos!

Well, not Thanos, but Lord High Papal. Basically, almost ... well, kind of a mirror of his Thanos.  Grin Hard to explain. Once you read it, you can see the similarities and the polar opposites that make it Thanos, but NOT Thanos.

If you haven't read the 2008 version of Guardians of the Galaxy it's a must read. The movie is based on this version.
