Manga: Angel Densetsu
The artwork isn't the best but the humor is very alike. You just have to enjoy both of them!

Manga: Kyou kara Ore Wa!!
If you cross Great Teacher Onizuka and Detroit Metal City, you'll get KKOR Wa!! It's a cross between DMC's ostentatious humor and GTO's delinquents fighting the good fight.

Manga: Devil Ecstasy
Detroit Metal City and Devil Ecstacy have the similar kind of feeling to it, the humor and drawing style, though Devil Ecstacy is totally NSFW. Both have this kind of slap-stick comedy that is way over the top, and challenges what you feel is appropriate to laugh at.

Manga: Kyou kara Hitman
Kyou Kara Hitman and Detroit Metal City are both episodic gag mangas where the MC have a secret identity. Every chapter in both mangas is about how the MC have to take care not to be caught by the people who dont know about the secret identity and makes jokes about this. In Kyou Kara Hitman the rape and killing that is talked about in Detroit Metal City take place in small doses, which can be quite refreshing after 10 volumes of Detroit Metal City.

Manga: Solanin
Solanin is a very down-to-earth slice-of-life story whereas DMC tends toward vulgar slapstick, but at their basest levels they're both about using a passion for music and a place in a hastily composed band to follow dreams and to make the best of and/or overcome a less than ideal situation.

Manga: Lucky☆Star
Admittedly a vulgar death metal band and a group of dayglo-haired high school girls don't have much in common, but both series do have a similar strange, quirky, oddly endearing sense of humour and not much in the way of any overarching plot structure.

Manga: Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou
The two are essentially gag mangas known for their rather short stories and quick laughs.

Manga: Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san.
Both of these comedies typically use mature themes as a means of generating humour. Azazel-san features copious depictions of violence and scat. DMC also makes references to violence, as well as concepts related to lust (particularly BDSM).

Manga: Beck
Both manga deal with a band striving for the top in the music world! DMC is less serious. 
reportRecommended by LazyMan
Manga: Dr. Slump
Both series have a largely episodic nature and juvenile humour. DMC's more crass about it, but Dr. Slump's poop and sex jokes prove it's far from innocent.
