Ewan My other suggestions would be Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind by Hayao Miyazaki - I think it's the only comic book he's done but it's just as absorbing as his animated films and even more epic - and Tekkonkinkreet by Taiyo Matsumoto; his deceptively rough drawing style is rather different to what you'd expect from most manga, being more influenced by European comics, but it's a beautifully surreal tale about an unusual friendship.
I know that Paul Duffield, who you mentioned in the article, is very influenced by his work. Ron What about any about girls? Ghost in the Shell, maybe, but what about something from Clamp, the all-female and highly talented quartet of magna artists who have produced such excellent work as Tsubasa multi-dimensional love quest with tragic twist , Chobits human-android love story , XXXholic humorous horror and Angelic Layer gladiatorial battles with small fighting robots?
Samuel One Piece is another well-known and very popular manga. It's very imiginative and, in my opinion, better than the two other 'popular manga' which were in your list, Bleach and Naruto. Another 'great' absent in the list is Rurouni Kenshin. I enjoyed its anime-form "Samurai X" very much and the manga is even better.
