Besides Cape Comics what would you recommend me to read? Both completed or in a weekly/monthly issue
Nazi Cats (Forgot the name)
Y: The Last Man
Looking for more "down to earth" kind of comics with no superheroes.
Love Cyberpunk and Medieval ambient and would love something with a vast universe and lore.
I think my favorite fantasy comic of all time is probably Cerebus the Aardvark, by Dave Sim and Gerhard.
It starts out as a lame, boring parody of Conan the Barbarian, but it becomes really interesting once the author overdoses on LSD, gets hospitalized, and decides to have the main character abandon his sword and move into politics.
The world is kind of a mishmash, where one kingdom might be medieval but the next is as advanced as the 19th century.

Down to earth? Absolutely. Cyberpunk I can't do, but how about punk?
It's an anthology comic by (usually) two brothers that's (mostly) about:
>Hispanic youths in Southern California who are part of the local punk scene
>everyday life in a rural South American village
It's so "down to earth" that the characters have been aging in semi-real time for the past 30 years. So be forewarned, when you start reading and see some qt3.14s, don't be surprised when you watch them grow old and fat and wrinkled, one issue at a time.
>Like the premise, thanks.
The first half is so fucking good, then the 2nd half is just terrible. Like they spend the first half of the book building up the main character only for him to do a complete 180 out of nowhere. Like I see that they were trying
to show how good people make terrible decisionsbut there wasn't really any character development to cause the 180. It was just a "well we need to end the comic somehow so this is what we're gonna do."
Almost everybody on Prophet's done work before somewhere, except I think Joseph Bergin III who was found by Graham on DeviantArt.
Prophet's great, it's probably the most "down to earth" scifi I know. The characters just seem so much more real after we learn how they eat, how they sleep, how they use the toilet...
>no-one says Transmet
The fuck, guys?
Punisher MAX ditches the main Marvel Universe and focuses on Frank Castle operating in the real world. No jumping from roof-tops, no fighting aliens, no 'heroes' at all, just planning and executing missions. It's widely considered to be the best run of Punisher and one of Garth Ennis' best works, I don't know if it exactly fits what your looking for but I always like to recommend Punisher whenever I can.

I fucking LOVED Estraction because of this
Not only that but even if >>64036214
is intimidated by the 300 issues, the series really has some of the best world-building I've ever seen in a comic, there's this segment where an omniscient being has a monologues about the "genesis" of the world, the history of the city Cerebus had been spending most of the story, and what will happen in the moon thousands of years from the present, and I found it fascinating it because you hardly every see this much thought put in the worldbuilding of a comic
Plus, even though the series goes downhill after issue 200, throughout the whole series is just loved to see how Estraction EVOLVED; the technology and ideologies of people are constantly becoming more modern throughout the series at a VERY fast rate (they basically go from their Late Antiquity to the 1970's in about a century if I recall right)
otherwise, you can always read Bone, which is also a FANTASTIC Fantasy Epic except it's 50-something issues long
>Vast universe and lore
Sounds like you could get some Judge Dredd in your life. Also, if you want something that's a great mix of sci-fi and gothic horror, check out Nemesis the Warlock.
