My favorite comics/manga

So I was sitting here thinking what are my favorite comics that are out now.  While I do read a lot, my favorite reading material comes on Wednesday's at Laughing Ogre Comics (the comic store that I frequent). I do have a lot of favorite's but right now I am liking the Marvel NOW line.  Not to talk bad about DC, Image, Valiant, or IDW but me personally I just like what they are doing over at the house of ideas.  With that in mind I thought I would give you all my personal favorite comics and manga that I am currently reading. Check' em out.

  6. The Legend of Zelda: written by Akira Himekawa - this manga is usually written after the games.  They are actually very good there are 10 graphic novels out, with the latest one being about Skyward Sword.  Here's hoping they release it in the west.
