I read more DC than Marvel but more Moonstone and Dynamite than either. I have a strong fascination for "classic" characters such as Kolchak: The Night Stalker, Doc Savage, Green Hornet, The Shadow, The Avenger, The Phantom, etc. Not to mention the kickass ladies such as Vampirella, Honey West, Domino Lady, Lady Zorro, Red Sonja, etc.

no, because comics kinda all fall under the same spectrum. i like sweet fluffy romances with low drama, comedy with little to no plot, and calm slice of life genres, so american comics aren't my thing.

That's like someone saying "Anime... Like DBZ or Naruto? Nah, not interested." Superhero comics are just one genre of the medium. And like shounen, it is the most popular genre of its medium, but that doesn't mean that's all there is. DC and Marvel are the biggest names in comics right now, and they mostly specialize in super hero stories. But Image comics has been gaining popularity over the last few years and have almost NO superhero comics that they're currently publishing. And imho Image is the gold standard of american comics now a days.

Of course, the one Image comic everyone is going to recognize is the Walking Dead, a horror comic by Robert Kirkman that's become one of the biggest hits on cable tv of all time. They also have Nailbiter (another horror comic), Birthright (Fantasy adventure), East of West (Science fiction), Saga (Sci-Fi/Fantasy adventure), Black Science (more Sci-Fi), Snotgirl (slice of life), Copperhead (Sci-Fi western), Deadly Class (Drama/Action), Kill or Be Killed (Drama/Action), Lazarus (Post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi), Black Road (historical fiction), and Descender (even more sci-Fi).

And those are just their ongoing series that I'm currently keeping up with. They have a bunch of other titles, very few of which have anything to do with superheroes. They may not be as popular as DC or Marvel, but quality-wise Image stands alone atop the american comic world.

I've read Watchmen and a few Deadpool and Hawkeye comics when I was really into that. I don't like them nearly as much as other media so I stopped.
