* ''ComicBook/DeCapeEtDeCrocs'' is my favourite recent French-Belgian series by a long stretch. Given its relative obscurity, I doubt it will ever be translated, but the task would require incredible amounts {{Woolseyism}} anyway. A swashbuckling story with FunnyAnimals and humans as heroes, chock-full of references ranging from 17th century French literature to 21st century music (some visual), with endearing characters of all sexes and species, and an enthralling plot. Just to give an example, this is the series where you can have an fox engaging in a rap battle (with rather good rhymes) against a pirate, on the Moon. And it's awesome.

* People, Can I just take a moment to gush about the originators of the superhero game, DC Comics. All you have to do is look at an Alex Ross painting and youíre filled with this sense of hope and legacy; thatís what the whole DC universe is all about. Their chaarecters are more then people in costumes, they are ideals, personified. There is just something that pops about the DCU that is so unique and timeless.
* The ComicBook/FantasticFour,
people. Hickman himself sums them up nicely: "A perfect family in an imperfect world". It's just really refreshing and comforting to see this group of people go through life together. And yeah there are bad days and good days, and really great days and really crappy ones, but they're still a family. That's a really heady, grown-up message in a medium that historically isn't equipped to do grown-up heady messages--however much it tries (and it gets close). Separately and together, the FF are the Marvel Universe's old buddies. They play cards with the Avengers, they're all friends with everyone, and even Reed and Doom have become civil in the past few years. And if you haven't read Hickman's run, buy it. Buy it now.

* ''Comicbook/{{Exiles}}'' - [[XMeetsY X-Men meets Sliders]] for all kinds of awesome. The fact that most of the action takes place in alternate universes without heavy continuity means that the writers could have some CrazyAwesome ideas for stories. Like what if [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]], [[ComicBook/XMen Bolivar Trask]], [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Hank Pym]] and [[Franchise/SpiderMan Curt Conners]] decided to fight {{Kaiju}} with TransformingMecha? Or if a bunch of C-list alternate universe heroes decided to fight an evil Superman expy for the fate of the universe? That and it didn't cheapen the deaths of well-developed characters by bringing them back. And Blink is just awesome.

* I started reading ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'' for the {{stripperiffic}} [[{{Woobie}} adorably insecure]] heroine, but I stayed for one of the most true-to-life romances in comics; Emp and Thugboy feel like a real couple. Add in unique art (don't like it myself, but the [[{{Animesque}} manga-influenced]] pencils are distinctive), the downsides of being a C-list hero, lots of not-so-clean sexy fun (best sex scenes since XXXenophile), an examination of just how fucked up you need to be to wear a cape, Ninjette, the Goddamn Maidman... and you have one of '''the''' best comics.

* The YoungAvengers is one of the best comics I have read ever, especially the 2013 run. Thank you for Hulkling, Miss America, Loki, the amazing storylines, the rest of the characters, the creative setting(s), the EVERYTHING.

** Seconded. seriously, Xadhoom is the kind of overpowered Badass that completely avoids being a [[MarySue sue]]. Power-wise, we're talking [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]] levels of Power and [[BadAss Badassery]] here. Imagine [[Franchise/TheDCU Superman]] with vast control over Matter and Energy and, give her [[Anime/DragonBallZ Vegeta's]] temper and abrasiveness, [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards's]] intellect and that just about sums up Xadhoom. this may seem Long-winded, but hey, This is Gush.

* Everything GailSimone has written.
** just to give a few examples of her accomplishments: a legitimately heartwarming series about insane murderers (Secret Six), a serious look at the nature of legacy that still had time for chronologically displaced heads, B-movie cancer-god worshiping puritans, and kaiju-breeding (The All-New Atom), a "ParentsAsPeople" deconstruction of superheroes (Welcome to Tranquility), and however it is that you describe Birds of Prey.
