I’m extremely biased so I’m gonna say that the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog family of comic series was my fave. There some undeniable weird ass stories in there but there was gold to be found sometimes. In particular, I enjoyed the spin-off “Sonic Universe” since they focused on more characters other than Sonic.
A good fave of mine is Ultimate Spider-Man. Back when I was about 12 or 13, I found the first few issues in the public library and I was addicted. When I couldn’t find any more issues, I started reading them online (don’t tattle ). The fluid stories, character interactions, artwork, and the fact that it was the starting point for an entire universe, really made the comic for me.
Other than that, I enjoy quite a handful of DC and Marvel comics (I still try to keep up with Spidey in particular), Scott Pilgrim, some Archie stuff, etc.
Tyson Hesse is my favourite comic artist. I don’t have a favourite writer per se. I also do not have a favourite publisher.
