There are several different "Core Sets" of Munchkin that can be played on their own. Zombies and Apocalypse are two of them.

Expansions exist for most of the Core Sets, they have a number as part of their title, have less cards, and cannot be played by themselves.

(There are also several 15-card boosters. Those are also, obviously, not playable by themselves. Mostly they have the same card backs as the original version of Munchkin, but there are a few exceptions.)

You can, however, mix together different Core Sets if you wish. They are compatible for the most part, aside from having different art on the backs of the cards. There will be some weird interactions, most likely, but that's part of the attraction for some people.

As for what Core Sets are good, well, I think they are all good, but how much you enjoy them might depend on how interested you are in the subject matter. I do particularly like Apocalypse, though, since it has an additional deck of "Seals" that get opened and closed throughout the game for various effects, and an alternate win condition in the event the "Seventh Seal" is opened.
