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?
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.
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.
Scott Pilgrim's author just released a self contained graphic novel a few days ago called Seconds. It's pretty funny.
About a girl that deletes the stupid shit she does everynight using magic mushrooms and a notepad.
