* The ''ComicBook/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' manga-style comic by Tania del Rio. This could have been just a cheap gimmick by ArchieComics. Instead, Tania took the manga idea beyond the look: it had good characters, a detailed mythos, and an actual arc.

* ''Chase'', a DC comic book from late '90s. The premise -- a (mostly) normal woman solving metahuman-related crimes in the DCUniverse -- was ahead of its time. It had a complex main character, a solid cast, and great art, but it was ingloriously cancelled after only 10 issues -- and the last issue was a crossover with ''ComicBook/DCOneMillion'' that was completely unrelated to the main story. Thankfully, DC had the decency to wrap up the unresolved plot threads in their 2000 annuals, and Chase herself later became a supporting character in ''Comicbook/{{Manhunter}}''... which was also too good to last.

She is one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe. She was a member of the Avengers (the first black female member in fact) and even lead them for a while. But for some reason, few people have even heard of her.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{ComicBook/Rork}}''. Very obscure yet brilliant comics series with complex, well-written plot, likeable characters, truly epic vibe and jaw-dropping art. If you like dieselpunk, inteligent story, CrazyAwesome ideas and deep mysticism, it's comics for you.

* [[{{UsefulNotes/Argentina}} Argentinian]] ComicBooks don't receive any love from the world in general; not even in their country. Just to give a few titles, ''El Eternauta'', ''{{Mafalda}}'', and ''La Revista Fierro''.

** Are you kidding? ''{{Mafalda}}'' gets more love than ''ComicBook/MonicasGang'' itself.

* ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' is an absolutely ''[[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments hysterical]]'' newspaper comic that could best be described as the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' of comic strips. It involves several {{Funny Animal}}s living in a CrapsackWorld who get into several normal and not-so-normal situations and make [[{{Pun}} Incredibly Lame Puns]] on a regular basis. Unlike most comic strips, Pearls is decidedly [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids not child-appropriate]]. It comments on several issues, [[TakeThat takes jabs at the media, the government, society, and various other comics]] (TheFamilyCircus and {{Dilbert}} being favorite targets), as well as the declining state of the newspaper industry, contains all kinds of death (one of the characters is an idiotic crocodile who regularly tries (and fails) to eat his zebra neighbor), BlackComedy, and various other family-unfriendly content. Hell, the main characters are a cynical {{Jerkass}} and a WideEyedIdealist who is constantly abused by the other. But it's all PlayedForLaughs (most of the time), and makes for a very entertaining read. It's not even afraid to [[SelfDeprecation belittle itself and its author]]. And yet it gets so little attention

* Anything, ''anything'' involving {{Taskmaster}}.

to:

* ''ComicStrip/StarFox'' - yes, [[VideoGame/StarFox the very one]]. It expands on the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 original game]]'s backstory, introducing new characters, concepts, action sequences, occasional light-hearted humour and a small measure of romance, well-dosed for the game's genre.
