I hear great things about Copic markers but they're rather pricey. They don't bleed through heavy paper as much as Prismacolor markers. This blog has some thorough posts comparing the more expensive pens so you can see what they look like on paper.

Thank you for the link! I was considering copic, but as you said, the price... I draw for leisure and don't feel comfy spending so much.

I don't know about their markers, but I have a set of dick blick colored pencils for casual use that I really like. Like you, I didn't feel justified in springing for prismacolors... it was a really good value for a good quality product, so their pens might be worth looking into.
