Astro City ½
My summary does not do the story justice. I just love it. All these stories I read, with the fantastic and the powers and the cosmic sprawling epic stories, it's a "love story" like this represents the "best" of what comic books can be.

Not sure if this counts, but since it is the only comic I read on-line, I guess I will go with it.
I think I "get" about 35% of the published strips and about 15% of the alt-text associated with the strips.
I don't even remember how I stumbled across the site, but I am a day behind in these posts and I have been unable to think of any other web comic that has made an impact on me.

"[On] December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific."

While I am not a big basketball fan, I will admit I like this commercial. As James (and Jordan) has transcended basketball, so has their message/image/etc.
Whatever fallout lingers from "The Decision" (and Miami's "slow" start), this is the way to help move forward from it.

Many comic fans know this issue because of "The Punch". Comic Book Resources rated this "fight" #16 on its list of "25 Best Comic Battles".
Here is their write up:
The Justice League of America fell apart during the mid-80s, when most of the members of the team were killed by an old nemesis of the League, Professor Ivo. After the crossover “Legends,” a brand new Justice League was formed, made up of mostly superheroes that had never been in the League before, such as Mister Miracle, Captain Marvel, Blue Beetle and Doctor Fate, along with old League stalwarts such as Martian Manhunter, Batman and Black Canary. One new member had a certain idea of how he was going to be involved with the team, and that member was Guy Gardner, a member of the Green Lantern Corps. He felt that he should be the leader of the team.
In the very first page of “Justice League” #1, by writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis and artist Kevin Maguire, Guy is shown waiting for the rest of the members of the new League. He is dismayed, though, when he discovers that the rest of the team tends to look to Batman for leadership.
Over the next few issues, the other Leaguers soon grew tired of Gardner's constant complaining, but they also did not appreciate Batman's churlish handling of leading, either. He could have dealt with Gardner in many different ways – he chose to treat Guy like a child, only enraging Guy even more.
The relationship came to a head in quite a humorous fashion in “Justice League” #5, when Guy decides to finally decide once and for all who is in charge. In the issue, he challenges Batman to a fist fight.
Batman agrees, and after Guy takes a swing, Batman proceeds to knock Guy unconscious with one punch.
This greatly amuses Blue Beetle, and it confuses Martian Manhunter and Black Canary, who enter the room to see Guy out cold on the floor.
Beetle's repeated "One punch! One punch!" has become a catch phrase forever associated with Giffen and DeMatteis' Justice League.
