DC certainly offers comics to meet my requirements, however if the superhero comic (by which I mean heroes with powers rather than the more gritty Batman line) is more to your taste then this is offered too.
They produce some very interesting reads and if you've never read a comic before ... Read review
Fairly expensive on a "pound per hours reading" level.
"...to the rest of the DC universe. Usually these fall under the "Vertigo" line.
Great stories from the past to look out for.
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (Frank Miller)... an aged Batman resumes his crimefighting in an even more dystopian future.
Swamp Thing (the Alan Moore Years) ... truly innovative horror comic which is not as silly as the title would suggest. It practically defined the supernatural background of the DC Universe.
