Does anyone know of a good comics seires that is set in a medieval theme. I know "The Hedge Knight" by George R R Martin is out there but its only just begun. Are some that have been going on for awhile or are complete?

(Well, if you want the swords without the sorcery)

Right- asked one of my 'contacts'
The Towers of Bois-Maury by Hermann. A series of beautiful graphic novels that I simply cannot recommend highly enough. It's a very realistic presentation of medieval Europe. No sorcery whatsoever. The ongoing story is about a wandering knight returning to the old home of his family, the towers of Bois-Maury, but each book is self-contained and deals with different people and situations he encounters on his journey. At least the first two volumes, maybe three, are available in American editions from Dark Horse.
There's also a prequel, called Roderigo, about the knight's early years in spain (I think).
