I'm starting to get into comics and am reading some of the big ones, marvel, dc and I've seen the fantasy world in Grimm Fairy Tales. But I was expecting to be able to find something like a classic fantasy with Dwarves, Dragons, Wizards. Along the lines of forgotten realms, tolkien, warhammer, etc those type of worlds in comic book form.

Its such a big genre in novels and graphically there is lots work with, yet I can't seem to find comics set in such a world. Are there comic series like that, either ongoing or completed and what would be a good way to find them?

    Welcome to SFF.SE. Unfortunately this sort of question (unbounded lists of recommendations) is off-topic here. When you have a bit more rep (and there are lots of ways to earn rep), you'll be able to pose this question in chat, which is a much better place for these sorts of discussions – Jason Baker Jul 15 '15 at 15:05
  • Incidentally, there have been several iterations of "Dungeons and Dragons" comics, which might help scratch your itch, including ones set in the Forgotten Realms. – FuzzyBoots Jul 15 '15 at 15:06

    Question was meant more along the lines of 'do these comics exist: Yes/No' and how do you find them 'Go to X,Y' wasn't expecting list of recommendations back. But I see your point, will ask on a different site. – Aryzel Jul 15 '15 at 15:08
  • the european (especially french) market has some incredible comics (well, rather larger format, going for a few volumes. known as belgian/french as many well known are from belgium, others from france, and most of those are in french). For exemple "la quête de l'oiseau du temps" ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Qu%C3%AAte_de_l%27oiseau_du_temps ). translations exists – Olivier Dulac Jul 21 '15 at 15:07

Yes there are some currently being published -

Dynamite publish comics set in the Pathfinder universe.
Collected in a number of hardcovers, including -
1: Dark Waters Rising
2: Of Tooth and Claw
3: City of Secrets
4: Origins (forthcoming)

Failing that, there is also Birthright, but that crosses over into the "real" world.
1: Homecoming

Then there's comics based around other properties such as D&D and Magic: The Gathering, but I'm not aware of any currently being published monthly. (Trade collections undoubtedly available.)

As to a good way to find others, sites such as Comic List provide the releases for each week.

  • Thanks Nikolai and Sean, that's what I was looking for, I think the sheer volume of marvel and dc floods the results when I was trying to do searches without knowing how to phrase it. – Aryzel Jul 15 '15 at 15:17
