    There was a manga called Eatman that I remember being alot of fun. Also one called "Two Faces of Tomorrow" that I recall being really interesting.

    I never got into Guyver too much, but always thought it was a neat design.

    Tintin by Herge

    That's the only one I can cite, because it's one of the few that have been translated for me. I own several of the soft cover graphic novels and one or two of the hardbound collections of three graphic novels.

    Eatman is amazing. Such good art, straightforward storytelling, I have tons of them in Japanese. IIRC they only did 2 volumes in English, have they restarted?

    "Blacksad" by Spanish authors Juan Díaz Canales (writer) and Juanjo Guarnido (artist)

    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.

    Some of my favorite comics from outside the USA are....


    The only Manga I ever really throughly enjoyed, Mai the Psychic Girl





    Dave Sims masterpiece Cerebus.







    Tanino Liberatore and Stefano Tamburini's, RanXerox





    And while I admit the strip was started by American, Alex Toth, I'm just nuts about the work of sometimes Jonah Hex artist Jordi Bernets work on the Spanish comic, Torpedo 1936.

    Most of my favorite (Tintin, Asterix, Lucky Luke) has been mentioned, so I'll chip in these :

    L'Agent 212 is probably one of the funniest comic I've ever read. Tells a story about an ordinary cop and the life around the station. It's a gem really.



    Tanguy et Laverdure.
    Adventures of two French Air Force pilots. Really good stuff.

    British and Canadian comics aside, I'm a big fan of Cyborg 009, a lot of Osamu Tezuka's work, Lupin III, Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist... lots of manga standards.

    A lot of the European comics in this thread sound fascinating. Where do you even find a lof of this stuff?

    Mate, do you ever read Memin Pinguin ?

    According to wiki it was very popular in South America, and it was certainly very popular in South East Asia during the 80s. I used to love reading it when I was a kid. The story was well written, especially about the friendship between Memin and his friends.

    Wow, I had completely and utterly forgotten about Memin Pinguin! Yep, I recall seeing those comics on newsstands in Santiago, and I'm sure I had some. In fact, I was in Mexico City two years ago and Memin comics were among those that I brought back to the States with me. They are quite good.
