Always will be Berserk.
Best manga art I've seen and a great story.
Adult content galore though.

If you have to pick just one, read Finder. It's sci-fi, there are a number of different stories that mostly revolve around one set of characters.

^I read a few random issues of it and couldn't tell you what the hell they were about. Also I can tell the interior art was a lower priority than the cover. I really felt like a sucker for buying them. It seems like they tried to throw the plot over the audiences head, before anybody noticed the storytelling was bad. They banked on James Jeans amazing cover art and Neil Gaiman's name as creator.

Ooh, I see. Well I have to disagree a bit: it's true the interior art isn't particularly impressive, truthfully I'm not a fan myself, but when writers choose their artists, they don't always go for the person who comes off the most flashy: sometimes they choose people who let the story shine over artistic style. Hard to say if this is one of those times, but I'll allow them the benefit of the doubt.
As for the story, it's actually quite good. It's a story with ongoing arcs so it isn't meant to be a pick-up-and-read book in the least, other than a few inter-arc one shots. I especially like the first swath of the story ending in "War and Pieces" and am not crazy about it so much after that. I'd recommend picking up the first arc, "Legends in Exile" (issues 01-05) to get a sense for the pulse of the story.

I kind of take it from a point of ignorance. I just go for the pictures.
Dave McKean is rather godlike.
And had to add Shaun Tan. Incredible book.
