    Here's something for you all to see how diverse you really are when it comes to the medium of comic books. Post your favourite comic series that is NOT a manga and is NOT your typical superhero stuff. (Well you can put in superheroes if you really want to)

    Mine would definitely be Zagor. This italian graphic novel is super old but it's still as popular as ever. It incorporates elements of sci-fi and fantasy into a western setting and provides all sorts of episodic stories, be it funny ones in which Zagor listens to ridiculous stories from his good fat friend Chico or be it dead serious ones in which the whole world is being threatened by some supernatural threat. There's comedy, there's horror, there's even some historical fiction here.

    Your turn, what's your favourite non-manga comic series? :)

    Gonna add:

    Justice League (Rebirth)
    Five Ghosts
    Saga

    Just gonna put it out there, if any of you guys enjoy sci-fi, space opera, or fantasy settings, like Star Wars, definitely try out Saga. I've read the first volume and its really good. Its by Image Comics, who publish completely creator-owned comics without copy-righting or licensing their work under the company.

    Oh my god. I feel like it's a sin to not mention Spawn here. Got some graphic novels as well. I mean, they are basically comics um right? Well, other than that, Fables is really good.
    Calvin and Hobbes. It's not a traditional comic but it is a COMIC strip.
    Batman (New 52)
    Nightwing (New 52)
    The Walking Dead. I guess everyone forgets about that one.

    My local comic shop has most volumes of Saga currently published but, while it does look interesting (with the man goat and all), I just never got to buying it.

    Graphic Novels are comics but bundled in a big volume rather than sold as separate short issues. (Think weekly manga chapters and those same chapters compiled into a volume.)
