Many, though defiantly not all, comics are sci-fi or fantasy. Some of my favorite comics don't qualify for this forum. I worked at a comic store for several years around when I was in high school so I know the comics 10+ years old fairly well. I still like comics, I just don't have the spare cash to keep up any more. However, I do feel that there is a lot more out there than superheroes, though superhero stories if done right can be great, and that comics, especially these days, aren't just for kids.

Here are some of my favorites:
Astro City - Kurt Busick and Brent Anderson - wonderful twist on the superhero genre.
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Frank Miller, Klaus Janson, and Lynn Varley - batman as an old man. A great story that is a twist on the well know Batman character.
The Books of Magic - John Ney Rieber, Gary Amaro and Peter Gross - in a similar genre to Harry Potter, but it came out first. This is a wonderful urban fantasy.
Calvin and Hobbes - Berke Breathed - I love how Hobbes is alive/a stuffed animal. I love stories where stuffed animals come to life, though not in the Chucky sort of way.
Elf Quest - Windy Pini - a great fantasy story/world.
Fables - various - what happens to the fairy tale characters after they are forced into exile in our world. This is not a children’s story.
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - Alan Moore - the comic is much better than the movie. I would call this urban fantasy, even if it is set in an historic setting.
Sandman - Neil Gaiman and various - just a wonderfully well written story.
Transmetropolitan - Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson - Hunter S. Thompson of the future. I great sci-fi comic book, but the future is taken to the absurd. This is an adult comic, and may offend many people.
The Vampire's Christmas - Joseph Michael Linsner - a fun, though messed up, Christmas story.

Love the site! I always loved comics as a kid. Still have some of them. Looking to learn more about them.

I did download the Heroes comic from the tv show. It has nice graphics.

I just wish I had the time and money to keep up, but it seems much harder to keep up with comics than with books.
