I support Onepunch-Man and nominate I Am a Hero.

Onepunch-Man is funny, has great art, and makes great use of its webcomic medium.

I Am a Hero breathes life into the zombie genre with a masterfully characterized main character.

I nominate Vinland Saga
Sorry, but Vinland Saga was serialized in 2005, ergo ineligible to be nominated.




My nomination goes to I Am A Hero - A "time bomb" manga, while the plot is relatively slowly unfolded, I couldn't stop reading it until I caught up. Also, this manga won Taisho and Shogakukan awards, so more or less that this manga is giving excellent thrills. I love Hanazawa Kengo.

Onepunch-Man - Yuusuke Murata is great, when I discovered this for the first time, I didn't know Murata is the one who draws it. Plot-wise, it's funny and entertaining, while art-wise, it's sublime, since Murata employs modern devices to enhance the drawing.

I support Onepunch-Man too and would nominate Yokokuhan

Both works surprised me on their own and caught me. The first was recommended to me the latter I stumbled upon on my own, and would definitely recommend it as well if you are into hacking, cyber crime and similar topics.

I support I am A Hero and nominate Tokyo Kushu (Tokyo Ghoul). There aren't that many chapters out there but I highly enjoy the art and the story. The conflict the main character goes through right from the beginning is fascinating and the art makes it even more... gruesome in a good way.
