Hi, I've recently come back to reading comics and currently I'm reading (consistently) Hellblazer and The Losers. Although I enjoy both those comics, all I can say is that they're entertaining.
I was wondering if anybody can suggest comics/graphic novels that have stories with (this might sound a bit corny) deeper meanings, symbols, themes, etc. and a bit mind-blowing as well. Suggestions for pulp/noirish stuff would also be appreciated. No superhero and manga stuff.
I've been searching for quite a while but haven't found much. Just to note, I'm not interested in Sin City or The Preacher....
Neil Gaimans The Sandman looks interesting but I'm not quite sure what it's about....can anybody tell me about Fables?
