...I'm somewhat outside of the mainstream these days...

So can anybody recommend any really good Sci Fi /non-superhero comics...?

I did run across this for you Trek fans....

Dark Horse publishes a variety of Star Wars comics.
Dynamite publishes a couple Battlestar Galactica that I hear are pretty good.

...Thanks Umbrax...

Maybe someone also knows of some good manga S.F. translations...

Viz comics had a number of these some years ago...

I'm sure there are countless good and original Scif fi mangas out there too.
Not my area of expertise though

One word: Transmetropolitan

For Sci-Fi Graphic Novels, you cannot get better than this Warren Ellis classic! You can download the first issue right here PDF WARNING!

For something with a little less pictures, you might try Snow Crash and The Diamond Age by Neil Stephonson(they were supposed to be making a made for TV movie of the Diamond Age so Fingers Crossed)

...Thanks sardion2000 !

Actually, I've read Snow Crash more than once , or twice...!

Love that book... almost as much as All Tomorrow's Parties

by William S. Gibson....

I almost suspect that book , (ATP) is an M.K. programming tool, ala

Catcher in the Rye (Haw!)

...I'll haveta give Transmetropolitan a try...

When I think of "good" science-fiction comic books. The type without your stereotypical superhero. I always think of the classic comic book company -- EC comics.

Published in the early fifties, EC Comics published a series of science-fiction themed books that boasted some of the finest artwork that ever graced the comic book page. Featuring the artwork of such greats as Wally Wood and Al Williamson, these books stand out among the ranks of superhero and horror comics that were the norm in the fifties through the eighties. These books still stand out today due to the marvelous art and lettering not to mention the writing.

...Thanks benovelent tyrant...

I always had a fondness for EC comics...

In fact I believe they were the inspiration for the HBO series

Tales from the Crypt

The Fax comis covers for that show were often drawn by

Mike Vosburg who also was the original G.I. Joe artist in the 80's...

and had a cult favorite comic before that. Linda Lovecraft
