    Love & Rockets, , Strangers in Paradise, The Walking Dead all have a claim.

    Walking Dead has spawned a handful of TV series, some books I think, and supposedly some future movies so in terms of making money it’s def. up there.

    The most popular I can think of:
    Mafalda
    Tintin (it was originally black and white)
    Persepolis
    Maus
    The Walking Dead
    TMNT
    Corto Maltese
    Sin City
    The Crow

    As a character, I think Mafalda and Tintin are the most popular by far
    TMNT and The Walking Dead are probably the most popular franchises

    Haven't some of these comics mentioned been printed in colour or plus one colour? By plus one, I meaning something like this--

    I don't know about popular, but for my money FROM HELL was one of the best books in black and white that I ever got. It was in a phonebook, printed on cheap paper (I think it later got a pricey paper stock, but the beauty of my copy was that it was cheap, proving that comics don't need to be fancy to be great).

    I will read Chuck Austen’s run in X-Men as punishment for forgetting From Hell

    Well, The Walking Dead is the sales metric. So it's the easy winner.

    Hard to say when you add in books that are very popular in Not America, and have been around much longer than TWD, too.

    Walking Dead is likely the biggest recent hit.

    Bone might be on the same level, if you take into account all the collected edition sales.

    The all-time most popular are probably the biggest comic strips, which were black & white for the weekday editions for decades.

    Calvin, Peanuts, yeah. No doubt, but being daily strips, I didn't count them.

    Good call on Bone. I didn't think of that one.

    Not as big, but still very popular, Xenozoic Tales (aka Cadillac and Dinosaurs)
