I'm reading Berserk, and hell damn now that's some bloody grimdark for you. This is one of the few mangas I've ever came across with a medieval European setting, and definitely the first one that is so grimdark. I'd rank it up there with Abercrombie and Anna Stephens level of dark. I totally loved it though, which is pretty different to my preference for grimdark in fantasy reading in general.  8)

Berserk is classic. Grimdark before there was a grimdark genre!

The anime Berserk was good, but somehow not in my interest.

I'm reading the last volume of Grant Morrison's The Invisibles - weird and twisty mind-bending occult stuff that I find fascinating.

I've fallen way off with my comic reading but some of my favorites are:
Sex Criminals: Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky
Hawkeye: Matt Fraction & David Aja
Nailbiter: Joshua Williamson & Mike Henderson
