Need help guys!

I was never a fan of comics, i've only finished Sandman(wich is really fucking awesome) and some indie shit that i dont remember the name, but then the other day i stumbled into this marvelous mother fucker, and i've simply loved it, read all the issues and then "Elves" from the same universe, and i desperately need more.

Gotta admit, it was the first time google has let me down, searched for hours and didn't find something like that.

What im looking for exactly is this level of art (graphics? im not an expert), and the medieval fantasy setting (dwarves, elves, orcs, the whole pack)

I even asked this to two friends of mine who love comics, but to no avail. Help me out bros, please!

PS: not sure if i can make such a request in this board, but since i've seen nothing in the rules, im assuming it's good to go.

People ask for recommendations all the time here it's totally cool. If you can tolerate it being in black and white, the art for Berserk would be up your alley. There is a lack of dwarves specifically until the most recent chapter though, so you'll have to settle for elves and the rest for now. Lots of crazy creatures in general though if that's what you want. If you ever liked looking at the dragons and monsters on the covers of fantasy novels and monster manuals you'll especially like this series.

Thanks man, but manga i do read a lot, been reading berserk for ages now, definetly a good recommendation and one of the best mangas out there, sadly i've already knew about it.

hmm, most of the western fantasy I read is in book form. I suppose Saga and Valerian are kinda high fantasy. they're technically sci fi but play out more like fantasy, sorta like star wars or something. I think Star Wars might have been inspired partly by Valerian & Laureline in fact. Also Bone is good if you're up for a comedy. It's a classic.

I recently read Red Sonja, Queen of Plagues. It was p tight. Apparently there's a few Red Sonja movies too, which I'm gonna check out.

Dark Horse's Conan is pretty good. It has some slumps but all the Busiek books are top notch. Each trade is mostly self contained so you don't need to read them in order. Like maybe there's some random wench that followed Conan from one book to another but nothing that really matters.

Bone is fantasy just with protagonists from a different genre.

If you just want some sick art I think Heavy Metal has a big coffee table book of their covers. And I'm sure there are tons of Frank Frazetta art books out there.

There's Rat Queens which is basically an all girl D&D group. It's written from a male perspective and I found it a bit irritating but it has it's fans.

I've never heard a bad thing about Elfquest but I'd be lying if I said I ever read it.

I... have a problem with female protagonists, yeah i know, im losing a lot of good shit, but i just can't read/watch/play a woman. Damn this sounds machist.

This shit looks most promising, what is its name?

I'll give conan a shot, love the movies.

Ooh, recommend thread? I'll give it a shot.

Cerebus The Aardvark, by Dave Sim. 300 issues, culminating in the character's death, was the idea he started with, and he gets kudos for completing the mission, even if he completely lost his mind before the end. Started off as a Conan parody, moved into satire and gorgeous artwork, solid paced storytelling, shot off in some weird directions as the author's sanity started to show cracks.


Vinland Saga.

Bone. High fantasy, with protagonists from the wrong genre. Kind of like if Pogo Possum wandered into Lord Of The Rings, or Cheech Wizard was switched with Thomas Covenant.

Poison Elves.

Den (Richard Corben). Big bald naked guy kicking lizardmen with his cock and balls flapping about. Den kicks lizardmen and fucks their bitches, doesn't wear pants, what's not to like?

Hal Foster's original run on Prince Valiant.

Couldn't remember the name so relied on /616/'s knowhow to pick up the slack. Thanks Cornelius.
It's a comic from Hong Kong based loosely on Chinese myth or history or something. Be warned; it's over 100 issues. That put me off reading past the opening arc, but that still left a stronger impression than anything else I could name. Maybe I'll man up and try again someday. That pic is one of the least hype I saved. In just 5 fucking issues. It's insane.

I should mention the Elric comics, they're all usually quite good.
And Requiem: Vampire Knight is more fun than should be legal.

And The Dreamquest Of Unknown Kadath, I could never find every issue but I really enjoyed it.
