Now to be more positive, which is always nicer. I've avoided listing specific comics and creators, and stuck to what I really like about the medium.
I think it's wonderful that you can have drawings with these little balloons with words in that point to the person who's speaking and tell you what they're saying. Text and graphics together, and still enough room for the reader to have their own voice in the mix
The way a fantastic story coupled with an artistic style can completely draw you in to another world.
A panel that makes you feel as though you are there, a story with a strong sense of environment
The fact that manga has spread into Europe and America, and has enthused a new generation of readers and creators, especially kids, and both boys and girls equally. It can only be good for all comics now and in the years to come
The huge diversity of talents, styles, genres, stories, ideas... and they're all comics
The look of a comic page in its entirety with repeated characters, shapes and colours. Clear line has an especially strong graphical effect that is lovely
You can do anything with a pen and paper, and the comics format is particularly versatile
Pretty much all the people I know and friends I have made who make comics are top people, from professionals to self-publishers - it's a great scene to be involved in
The fact that comics are, actually, quite a high concept!
