I want to get into comics, but I have no idea where to start. All I've really been exposed to is the cape comics that are constantly shoved to the forefront, and so much has been done with the superhero that I just don't care about it. I enjoy reading manga and tend to prefer fantasy and psychological stories. I also like how manga typically keeps a single author so continuity and pacing are generally fairly tight, and stories have a clear end.

tl;dr what comics would you recommend to a manga reader who has no interest in superheroes/cape comics?

Locke and Key
Saga

Do you mean manga-like in terms of storytelling and themes or manga-like in terms of art style? I guess I should clarify that I'm not looking for stuff that looks stereotypically "manga-ish", I like any art style as long as it's pulled off well.

Just go into a comic book store and pick out what looks good and buy it. That is LITERALLY all it takes.

Fuck, I'm SO FUCKING SICK of all these "durr how do I get into comics?" threads. It is not hard at all, just start reading whatever looks good to you. That's how I started reading comics 8 years ago and I'm still here today. It's literally that easy.

Fuck.

Thanks for clarifying that you're being literal, I thought that was only figuratively all it takes.

Are there any good sites dedicated to non-cape comics out there, like news and whatnot, so I can get a feel for what's getting released?

I guess I'll set up a filter to filter all superheroes or something when I want to see what you guys are buzzing about. Thanks for all the recs

One last question, is there anything like mangatraders (RIP) or nyaa for downloading comics, or should I just use the archive to find storytimes?

Do give superheroes a shot sometime.

Go with New 52 Wonder Woman, its really more of a fantasy series anyway and has precisely 0 bullshit crossovers to worry about

Well, I'm not completely inexperienced with superheroes. I've read Claremont's X-Men run and loved that, and some Batman here and there. I just feel like I've had my fill, and the quality of the writing and stories changes so drastically that I just don't want to bother, really.

>>63765147
cool cool, wasn't suggesting you read it forever, once Azzarello's run ends at issue 35 I'm dropping it like it's on fire.

Scott Pilgrim's author just released a self contained graphic novel a few days ago called Seconds. It's pretty funny.
