So I usually lurk these areas, and it seems people are somewhat adamant about reading mangas. ibWho the fuck are you? I started reading 20th Century Boy, written by naoki urasawa. He's best known for the manga/anime series 'Monster'. They're both mystery/psycho-thriller, heraled as being top notch series, and they're definitely worth the time. If you like action or shounen stuff, this isn't for you, but if you like series that focuses on plot and character development, then http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20th_Century_Boys http://www.manganews.net/seriesinfo.php?id=46 http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/manga.php?id=3424 I'm not gonna bother summarizing/copy-pasting the information. It's projected to be 22 volumes long, and it's been licensed, but if you dig around a bit, you can find fan scanlations of it easily. Final volume, titled 21st Century Boy, is in works, and are being scanlated already, but I'm holding out on it to be completed. I'm sure some people on here have read it or at least heard about it. Just thought it's worth mentioning it out to those who haven't.
