Franken Fran and Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service are both episodic/arc-based manga with plenty of gore and some nudity (Franken Fran's is more explicit). Both are about a group of (bizarre but well-meaning) characters that find themselves in various morbid scenarios, and try their best to fix everything (with varying results), dark comedy ensues. While both rely quite a bit on shock value, ultimately they're each rather entertaining.

Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service and Franken Fran both involve a lot of severed limbs.  Occasional eviscerations.  Plenty of blood.  Some disturbing nudity underlying intense graphic violence.

And they’re also both funny.

The characters in these manga are quirky and hilarious--from a pansy guy who channels a potty-mouthed alien through a hand puppet to a dog with a man’s head who gives friendly advice--and frankly I can picture them all sharing tea one afternoon and getting along famously.  On a more technical note, both series also follow an episodic formula and juggle the odd genre mash-up of horror and comedy nicely.  If you can handle the gore in one, you can handle the other--and should find a similiar enjoyment in doing so.

Franken Fran and Keep on Vibrating both display a "subtle" blend of gory/disturbing imagery, dark comedy, bizarre characters, the occasional rather deep underlying message, and naked chicks. Keep on Vibrating has quite a bit more graphic nudity, though (that could be classified as hentai, were it not so grotesque).

Helen ESP lacks the nudity and (most of) the horror/gore of Franken Fran, but having both been made by the same mangaka, they share similar/identical visual styles, episodic formats, and atmosphere.

Lychee Light Club and Franken Fran both have TONS of gore, a bit of nudity, and dark humor (though Fran has much more humor). Lychee has a storyline, whereas Fran is episodic.

Variante and Franken Fran both feature lots gore and experiemental ideas. The shear gore in each is enough to turn any stomach but they both keep a good plot about the main character.
