Alright, /co/. Here's the deal. I'm asking you to recommend a comic to /a/. /a/ is being asked to recommend a comic to you. A week later, we'll all meet up on the opposite board to discuss. We'll call it the /co/a/lition roundtable. Guidelines:

1) It should be something that would likely appeal to /a/. It doesn't have to be capes or such, though; we like plenty others. Just don't recommend insane stuff like Flex Mentallo that most people are going to get frustrated with, or comics that rely on the reader to already be comfortable with reams of canon.

2) You've got to toss it up on rapidshare or mediafire, if it's not already there. We'll get /a/ to do the same for you.

3) Let's try and avoid the ultra-long series for now.

As superhero stuff tends to turn /a/ off...

I honestly think Hellboy/BPRD would appeal to a lot of people, it's just a plain excellent pulp horror-adventure comic.

Fables is another really excellent comic, as evidenced by the fact it gets recommended so much here.

Last one: DMZ, it falls into the genre of "Post-Apocalyptic" without the general tropes of a nuclear wasteland and desert mutants.

Runaways v1
Six normal teenagers realize their parents aren't as normal as they thought. Not exactly capes but firmly set in the Marvel U. Art that should be right in /a/'s wheelhouse and that gets better over time.

This book has it all! Bloody action! Unrequited love! Best friend drama! Probably the best superhero comic in the universe!

Black and white fantasy adventure that's cute as hell! Masterful sequential storytelling. I don't think it's on /rs/ and I don't actually have it, but everyone should read it.

I'll add a vote for Elephantmen.

I hate to say this, but I'm adding a vote AGAINST NextWave. Consider that we are recommending these not just to non-comic fans, but to people who are generally going to hate the comic-y in-jokes we enjoy. Think about the arcs:
1) (re)introduce the characters; they fight a retarded dragon (Fin Fang Foom clone... god I hope it's a clone).
2) a bad cop turns into a metal-eating robot, and they beat it. Honestly, /a/ will either see this as hold hat, "quaint", or insulting
3) Mudmen with laservision dance around and kill people. (It's funny if you know what the mindless ones are normally. If this is the first time you've seen them, it would be miscontrued as normal behavior, in which case they seem retarded.
4) They fight broccoli-clone versions of appeared-all-of-once gimmick villains, and the Not Brand Echh! Avengers. Comic in-joke
5) Big fight where they take on SILENT/Beyond Corp. The BBEGs are a baby MODOK, and Devil Dinosaur. Funny, but just weird if you have no idea who those guys are.

It's funny and weird, but I think most of the funny would get lost in translation, leaving confusing and weird for an /a/nimaniac*.

*On a side note, what do the denizen's of /a/ call themselves?

Everyone agreed that the anime sucked, and the manga and OVA are far better. Although it had better music.

If you like gore and vampires and nazis then go with Hellsing. If you like vikings and manliness then go with Vinland Saga. If you want compelling, mature drama and mystery and an actual completed story then go with Monster or 20th Century Boys.

/a/er here.

I like the Firefly/Serenity comics. They're only short, so nothing too epic you have to slog through, and they're funny. So from one /a/ to all you others, go forth and read! (Though come to think of it, you might not get it unless you see the series... but that's only 14 episodes...)

I suggest get them started on some Marvel Ultimate Universe. Famous characters they know to ease them into it, not too much to catch up on. X-Men has gone downhill a bit now that they've switched writers, but Spiderman's having a good run (and The Ultimates is supposed to be spectacular...?)

Or V for Vendetta and Sin City. They're always good.

I know I'm just mentioning the ones that everyone's heard of or already read, but there's usually a reason why that's the case.

Don't listen to the naruto recommenders. If you're going to read a fighting manga that never ends it has to be one piece.

As for comics, I haven't read many. I can just recommend the staple Watchmen and, for any Buffy/Angel fans Astonishing X-Men because Joss Whedon did it and it just bleeds his style.

Well, I'll find out soon enough since I'm from /a/ and a hardcore Hellsing fan who hasn't yet read Hellboy. Saw the movie, it was alright.
Hellsing was directly inspired by Hellboy, so I can't outright say Hellsing is better, even if it is.

Depends. Talking about the book, or the movie? Because most of the Dracula canon of Hellsing comes from the movie, more than the book.
But Hellboy was one of Hirano's big inspirations. It's kind of obvious, really.

Go read Monster if you prefer something intellectual and realistic. I just figured that the board that worships Avatar doesn't really deserve something that high quality.

93 manga chapters is like 20 regular comic chapters. There's barely any text and like 4-5 frames per page.

Especially Hellsing, which doesn't care for storyline and character development, only gore and vampires to attract goth kids.

Look, just because we don't learn the details of Alucard's background until near the end of the story doesn't mean he's undeveloped. And he's not the only goddamn character. Believe it or not, there are many Hellsing fans who would not list him as their favorite character in the series at all.
