Coming to the last few Sandman books.
Also, the last couple of Scott Pilgrim books.
I'm gonna start reading Preacher when I finish one of those.

I'm new to graphic novels and I absolutely loved Watchmen.
Just wondering what other Alan Moore works i should pick up or any other graphic novels for that matter?

V For Vendetta is supposed to be really good, though I haven't read it yet. (it's by Alan Moore, so I'm sure it'll be great)

V for V, 300, The Killing Joke, of the ones that I've read. I've also heard very good things about The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Please don't let the movies prematurely slant your view of the GN's...

Haha definitely won't let that influence me.
There's a reason Alan Moore hates the movie industry.
(even though I loved Watchmen and V was pretty rad)

300's not Moore, but it is still quite good.

300= Frank Miller

Can anyone recommend any Wolverine GN's, or marvel GN's in general? I don't have any.

My newest infatuation is with Y: The Last Man. Great, capturing storyline that continuously has you on the edge of the seat when you're reading. Defintiely an addictive GN that is actual quite simple when I think about it.
Personally, I wasn't a huge fan of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen [the gn]; perhaps it was the artwork that I didn't take an immediate liking to, but it wasn't as memorable as his other works. I absolutely loved reading V4V; story-line, character developments, artwork...everything was just so beautiful and aesthetically pleasing to me.

You can get comics through the major booksellers, as well, like Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble. Of course, you don't have the advantage of being able to thumb through the issues...

If you would like a long running series that is easy to get your hands on, I would reccommend Preacher. You can buy the paperpack TPBs from most online retailers, and it's a long series at 75 Issues.

As for a continuing monthly comic to buy issue by issue, I'm afraid I can't help you much on that one. I was always a fan of Punisher, but even then I mostly collect those through TBPs rather than monthly issues.

Thanks for the advice on the Marvel comics. I downloaded their podcast as well, it is really good. I saw the GN of Waltz with Bashir in HMV, was it originally a GN?
