I just read the first 2 volumes of Scott Pilgrim. It’s awesome! So funny XD The next 2 come out next month here. It’s a shame the movie probably will never get to theaters here =( It’ll probably be just released to DVD… I wanted to see it so much on a big screen…

Forgot, a while ago I read Persepolis. Really good as well!

[Late ;p]

Now that I think about it, I haven't really read much in the way of western comics. From the occasional flip-throughs I've done of superhero comics and such, I've found I generally prefer manga, and can get into the stories of manga more easily, I think because typically manga employs a variety of techniques that communicates emotion more powerfully, and so makes it easier to emotionally connect to the characters. (As opposed to western comics, where the drawings are more focused on being rendered more realistically.) Although, like I said, I haven't looked at too many western comics and that could be overgeneralizing, but that was how I felt looking through western comics I've seen--the artwork is amazingly impressive and I just have to stare at it for how good it is, but I don't get as readily attached to the characters as in many of the manga I've read. (Or maybe it's the style of humor in manga that appeals to me more?)

However, there are a couple of exceptions. After getting into Teen Titans (I believe an American-produced cartoon with strong anime influences), I went back and looked at quite a bit of the comics, both some of the older stuff from the 80s, and the newer ones, with some pretty intense, amazing artwork. I enjoyed those quite a lot. (Though a lot of that was, again, because I already had a connection the characters from watching the show--I'm not sure how connected I would feel to the characters just reading the comics, even if the art was pretty ridiculously amazing.)

The other comics I've been reading are the new Avatar comics from Dark Horse. Once again, I'm reading these coming off watching the show (again, American made, but with an anime style of art and anime influences), so I already have a connection to the characters, but I have to admit, they're pretty amazing. They carry the feel of the original story so well, and the story continues to be interesting and compelling, in spite of the limitations of comics versus full animation. (Which has the benefit of movement and sound.) They're definitely core canon material, and not a half-effort spin-off. I've been a bit obsessed with them since I started them, and I'm interested to see the next one.

Opal sets into motion her most diabolical scheme yet, to frame Artemis and turn his closest friends against him. Only this time she has a new calculating partner who knows Artemis better than he knows himself. [An Artemis Fowl fanfiction, set after The Atlantic Complex.]
