I've just recently gotten back into comics / graphic novels. Is there anything out there that's more science fiction than it is superhero? I like Batman, X-Men, etc., but I wanted something to read that's more along the lines of Star Trek, Star Wars, etc.

You mean apart from Star Wars, Star Trek and Doctor who?

I think they're doing an adaptation of enders game right now too.

Re: Comics

Yeah... something original, preferably. An adaptation of Ender's Game would be fun to read, though.

They do have Star Trek and Star Wars comics.

Lots of pre-prequels stuff is available. You might want to checkout your neighborhood library to see if you like that.

Re: Comics

Warren Ellis did a oneshot called Orbiter about a Shuttle returning with no crew, and he made an antistartrek which was kinda funny called switchblade-something-or-another, honey or razorblade?

Re: Comics

Thank you for the suggestions so far. And yes, I do realize they make Star Trek and Star Wars comics. I have a stack of them.

Re: Comics

Also, I'm not really into Japanese stuff.

Chew sounds good. I'll have to check that out.

Re: Comics

Also in terms of adaptations, Boom Studios is doing a complete text comic book adaptation of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. Every word of the novel is included in either speech balloons or caption boxes.

Re: Comics

We3 by Grant Morrisson and Frank Quietly is a nice short story that's available in trade. It isn't futuristic space-faring sci-fi like SW or ST; think Robocop, but with animals instead.

Re: Comics

Recently there's been comics based on the new Battlestar Galactica show. I don't know if they are still being made, but you should be able to find the trades in a bookstore or definitely in a comic book store. There's also a new Battlestar 1980 comic book out.

Also, I think Dark Horse produced at least two trades for the Firefly series. Also, DH is still doing Aliens and Predator books. I just saw an ad for a Mass Effect comic that DH will be doing.

I believe Marvel is also doing comics based on the Halo video games. Also, I think it's Marvel that's adapting or doing stories based on Ender's Game.

For a mix of superhero/sci-fi I would recommend Green Lantern or Nova.
