Garth Ennis' Punisher in general. Punisher MAX specifically.

I like Frank in 616 and interacting with superpowered people.

I don't know what the general consensus on it is, but I had a couple friends highly recommend Justice League International to me. I finally got around to reading it, and I just tapped out around issue 15 or so. I thought it was relatively poorly written, and every single character acted like how a 10 year old thinks characters should sound.
Is that the comedy series? It gets hyped up SO MUCH by some people. Maybe because it's one of the first books that tried to be funny.

The "Justice League Antarctica" annual is, hands down, the funniest comic I've ever read.
Truten forever!

Cerebus.
A seminal work by all accounts. But, really meh to me...


It's really more well known as a self-published comic that came out on time every month and reached the 300 issue mark.

Actually, it drifting from mostly-comedy to mostly-drama is a plus.  It started off as just a Conan spoof and got better.  There are some good moments in it.
