If you want something to make you think get Alan Moore's "Saga of the Swamp Thing" - it is one of the best written and beautifully drawn comic stories ever created.

So many of todays writers just want to start over and say "that never happened" - but Alan Moore instead said "that is what happened - but the reason why may be different than you thought it was...."
Another book that you would enjoy is "DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore" - it is a selection of stand alone stories he did of different characters in the DC Universe. It is again a great read and nice to see his view on a variety of heroes.
