Andy, you ever read DP-7 (Displaced Paranormals)? It was a pretty decent series as I recall, with all new characters, quite a wonderful story if not a bit "Wolverine running from the military", and some actual depth. IIRC Gruenwald did that one as well,.
You wanted something post-Watchmen with those characteristics, plus some decent pencilling, that's the only one I can come up with.
But....I'm not really a big comic nut like you wankers. I prefer ACTUAL literature (ducks)
