    In terms of American Comics, I used to love X-Men and the extended X-Book family until it got kind of stupid sometime around the late 90s post Age of Apocalypse era. I also enjoy Spider-Man but more of his 80s era. I don't read too much DC works, but Neil Gaiman's Sandman series has been quite excellent so far and I also enjoy other big name titles such as V for Vendetta and Watchemn by Alan Moore. For more independent works I enjoy Scott Pilgrim and Johnny the Homicidal Maniac.

    In terms of Manga, well that's a loaded one but I enjoy most of the works by CLAMP with Cardcapture Sakura, X/1999, Tokyo Babylon, RG Veda, and XxX Holic being my faves. I also love Rumiko Takahashi's works such as Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikkoku, One Pound Gospel, Rin'ne and Mermaid Scar. For long runner series, I love Yu Yu Hakusho, JoJo's Bizarre Adventures, Akira, Assassination Classroom, Ghost in the Shell, and One Piece. For more obscure works, Here is Greenwood is a great as is Angel's Sanctuary once you get past the icky stuff. Speaking of which, Mysterious Girlfriend X Is also an adorable love story manga once you get past the icky and bizarre premise. I'm sure I'm forgetting something as well.
    True beauty exists in things that last only for a moment.

    I think I've got a pretty similar view to Wolf Kanno on X-Men. I subscribed to X-Men in the 90s and early 90s up to and including Age of Apocalypse had some of my favorite storylines in the entire run of X-men comics, but after Age of Apocalypse there was definitely a period (which lasted at least until I stopped collecting and probably significantly further) where the storylines got bad and the artwork turned troutty manga. I'm not even someone who usually gets into talking about artwork stuff, but it was really noticeably bad even to me in that period. And they were introducing a bunch of crappy new X-Men during that period...whole thing got bad. Still X-Men overall is probably my favorite comic series. Spider-Man too, which also had similar missteps during the same period with the whole clone arc.

    Itís weird because I read the X-Men a bit during the Grant Morrison fun because thatís when they started sticking them in kiosks here and I really dig it. Up to the point when it turned out Xorn was Magneto or something? That was really dumb.

    FFXIV Character

    I've never really read western comics beyond marvel, but my favorite Marvel comics were the Annihilation event.

    As for manga, I've read many series but it's hard to pick a favorite there.
    Hunter x Hunter's great when it's really going but it has severe pacing issues, magnified by the frequent hiatuses and sometimes bad art because of the creator's health issues.
    Sket Dance was mostly great, but decided to never give the main character any growth, which is all the more bothersome when other characters constantly grow.

    Then there's a bunch of manga I like reading but wouldn't really call great, like One Piece (mother of pacing issues), Shokugeki no Soma (great art, but pretty weak story), Fairy Tail (weak story and stupid endings to fights), Hajime no Ippo (this has just been going on for too long, end it already), Nanatsu no Taizai (entertaining but shallow, also their power levels are completely out of whack), Attack on Titan (some very weak arcs, pacing issues), UQ Holder (interesting setting, too much fanservice) and the list goes on.

    My current ongoing favorite is World Trigger, a monthly series which just got back from a long hiatus.

    I remember really enjoying Larry Hama's run on Wolverine when I bought some of the black and white collections as a kid. I also really liked the Howard the Duck series - one of the more experimental things Marvel did. At one point I was reading Preacher a lot but the gore and content seems ridiculous now. I've always meant to read Sandman but I can never get into it. Also have meant to try Watchmen for a while too. I tried the Walking Dead comics but I'm not a fan compared to the show.

    Recently I read Joss Whedon's Firefly comics and I thought they were quite good - Shepherd Book's backstory was cool, too bad they couldn't get to it on the show. I should check out more of the continuations of Buffy and Angel as comics.

    Threewordphrase is one of my favourite webcomics but watch out, lots of NSFW humour.

    Hrm . . . it is probably easier for me to pick favorite characters than books themselves, but Bone was one I enjoyed the whole way through. I actually bought the one volume edition of it, which is something I wish I could find more of, as it is really annoying having to track down 3~4 trades just to get one damn story.

    Early on I remember liking Spawn a whole lot, though I stopped following the series around when the movie came out for whatever reason. I hear it got really silly though, so maybe that was for the best.

    The She-Hulk almost always has solid books and I generally pick up her stuff whenever I see it, though her lack of overall popularity has led to some major problems where her storylines get cut off midway or, sometimes, never have the time to get off the ground before the next major crossover event comes along and either forces everything back to status quo or wrecks whatever the authors were trying to accomplish.

    I really like The Superior Spiderman, though that is damn contentious with a lot of fans.

    I'm totally gonna second Ranma 1/2. I binged the entire thing in the span of a week when I was younger, it was that entertaining.

    An odd choice maybe, but the works of Shintaro Kago are really interesting. They are nothing for people with weak stomachs, but if you can get past the bizarre and violent elements, you will find a lot of very creative story-telling in there.
