I've always been a fan of The Punisher and the variety of titles and mini series to come from the franchise.  He's crossed over into more than a few other storylines and I think, for the most part, they did ok with the grittiness of the subject material in the images.

Some were certainly darker than others and he didn't do too bad for a "regular" human being in a world that features super powers.

Spoiler:
 

The character has certainly influenced my game style and my own writing.

He is a tough bastard, and excellent choice man. He is proof that in a world full of supers, a man with nothing to lose is one of the most dangerous individuals.
I'm partial to variety of comics, but mostly I love the character and story of (Specifically O Niels)The Question.(If you dont know who he is...watch Justice league or read below.)
I mean he is basically the everyman version of Bruce Wayne. Not being a millionaire, he usually uses his fists against his enemies. He works for a living as a Reporter and News Anchor. Hes fighting for a doomed city. He is one of the main supporting character's in JLU (even standing up to SUPERMAN unarmed.......Read over the last few lines to see why thats impressive). AND HE WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR RORSCHACH(and were it not for Dc owners not liking the idea of Moore killing off some of their characters, the question would used instead of Rorschach.)

You gotta love a character that isnt super, has a day life, and only uses his fists.

We don't get comic books where I'm from.
There were a few attempts, but there wasn't a big enough market for them
When I was about 9 I got the first Romanian comic-book, it was a special print edition of
The Amazing Spider-Man
with original illustrations and everything.
Only the word bubbles were changed from English to Romanian
A little while after that, we had an original series called "Chasers"
It was about a team of bad-ass demon hunters (way before Paranormal was a TV show)
And the demons changed from human to monster form when they were confrunted.
Well, it was very well written and drawn, but they went bankrupt Sad

About 10 years later (quite recently really), another company started a new project
a super-hero comic book based on original Romanian folklore characters
Very dope indeed. I got the first 3 issues, never even removed them from their plastic wrap
Now they're on issue 12 or 14, I lost track. I wanna support and encourage them but
I'm too lazy to stay in line at the newspaper stands closed eyes smile apparently they're successful with it now...

anyway, I have a vast knowledge of DC and Marvel heroes and villains
as well as origin and alternate stories of several of them.
I'm a fan of comics as a medium.
I'm a fan of some characters.
I'm a fanatic over some stories.
I just didn't have the resources to enjoy the full on comic book experience Sad

Man that sucks. I would be the same here. I know alot about villians, Heros, and stories  and have a few favorites. Hell some comic books have even inspired me in my own writings, much like Brigand. They can express stories that cant be told by words alone. And give us the most sympathetic villian's we could ever hope to see (e.g Magneto).
I just hate that thanks to The Big bang theory comic books are seen by some as status symbols, rather than fun little reads which can enlighten and educate in their own way. (e.g. Calvin and Hobbes)

I've been reading The Walking Dead comics by Robert Kirkman for awhile now, still going good. I've also been reading some of the New 52 DC comics, mainly Batman and Nightwing.

I'm a big fan, mostly horror. I've been reading Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever and Hellraiser, from the BOOM! series.

Ever read the really serous enlightening stuff? Like Day Tripper? Or Maus. Really good man. Actually picked up a childhood gem a while back and found out its really bloody clever stuff (Calvin and Hobbes).

I grew up reading Marvel comics, am a big Punisher Fan.
I still have a lot of comics and comic book cards from when I was little.
I like Batman and find the villains of Batman very intriguing. I love how twisted and insane they are. The game Batman Arkham Asylum is loosely based on the Batman graphic novel Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth.
I enjoy other comics like Hell Blazer from DC/Vertigo. John Constantine to me is a great character.
The Walking Dead comic is great, been collecting them.
I like the Darkness series from image comics.
Mainly a horror fan but I like what ever I find interesting.
Like I find Preacher by DC/Vertigo interesting and Neil Gaiman's The Sandman by Vertigo really interesting.

A horror fan myself actually. Maybe not so much in comics as I am with film, but still a huge fan altogether.

Same here, a big horror fan. Great minds eh?  Cool 
I love horror movies, books, comics ect.
I am a big Silent Hill fan and even collected some of their comics by IDW
Although the Games and original Lore from the games are better than most of the comics, still some of the comic stories are good.

They certianly do dont they.
Im actually using silent hill two in an Essay I am doing for college.On the question of Existance.
Movies, Books, Tv , Games.... Unfortunatly never read a horror comic. At least as far as I know.
Silent Hill is always a very interesting game no matter what. Two things players seem to overlook is that each enemy is a representation of the main character. And that Stuffs just cool! (below is my opinion on silent hill games)

No, you must check out the manga "Brothers" by Koike Kazuo & Kanou Seisaku (warning: do NOT search google for brothers manga...trust me on this). I have absolutely no idea what it's actually "about," as I refuse to even see if an English translation exists, but it is hands down one of the most gonzo, totally batshit things I've ever seen. I was given about 3 of the books close to 20 years ago by an exchange student from Japan and, man, was it a game changer - these were the pre-internet Image Comics days, so pretty much Vertigo was the only stuff worth a damn at the time, minus a select few one-shots and graphic novels. Anyway, if you're looking for something hilarious and weird and totally incomprehensible track it down, as my paltry words just can't do it justice...
