One of the last comic series I bought regularly was Planetary by Warren Ellis and John Cassady. Ostensibly about three super-folk exploring the secret history of the twentieth century, it was a deconstruction of superhero archetypes (and genre films like Hong Kong actioners and Tokyo giant-monsters). A truly inspired storyline that got strangled by its own delays, the frustration with which helped me break my comic habit.
Number 27 is coming out someday, so they say. (Here's a look at the first page of script.)
Meanwhile, take a gander at these collections currently available:
