I wasn't sure if this was already a thread or not...looked, but didn't see anything...

Manga has a lot of publishers these days.

Most notable are:

But there are others out there too.
Sometimes I find that I have a preference for which publishers I buy.
TokyoPOP has been great, but lately their new manga doesn't have the same quality it used to.
VIZ has a lot of Shonen Jump manga, which is great, but there's not much variation.

Some up and coming companies that I thoroughly enjoy have been Go!Comi, CMX, and Yen Press.

Darkhorse (The publisher of the Trigun manga and others) have published a few, and they're pretty good.

Maybe it doesn't matter to you, but I suppose it matters to me xD
Who do you prefer?

^Viz (or at least the English translation of FMA) actually does have rather shoddy editing work. One of my manga has either missing letters, ever-changing spellings of names or switched text panels.
Though I have to admit, Viz publishes most of my favourite stuff.
