Does anyone read a manga called Monster by Naoki Urasawa? I picked up the first volume yesterday and four others today. I'm simply amazed at how brilliant it is, and the only thing I regret is that I didn't get more as the fifth volume ended with a cliffhanger.

Here are examples of the art and a basic plot description. Everyone who likes thrillers and suspense should definitely give this a try. Also, huge eyes, panty shots, chibis and other annoying manga clichés often seen in teenage manga don't appear a single time in this title.
