I've found the best combination of quality and cost is Prismacolor. Pricey if you're new to it, but not as costly as Copics.
But boy, Copic markers are a DREAM! I sometimes sneak my wife's copic markers to supplement my own Blicks brand and Prismacolor markers. Prisma PB-46 i've found is the PERFECT color of the Martian suit!
