Just as we're fond of Japanese Cartoons, our club also collects "Manga" or Japanese Comics. Personally, I collect manga because of the art: the sheer detail of some pages usually blow me away! In contrast, there may be pages or panels where there's no background. Manga artists also manage to blend serious panels with more cartoony ones. And the LINES!!! Those awesome speed lines that are found in most "action panels". Even though I don't speak a word of Japanese (save the occassional phrase or two) and I don't understand Kanji, Katakana, or Hiragana; I'm still able to enjoy the story and the art (or at least, what I understand of it), which is a testament to the effectiveness of the manga artists' storytelling ability.
