While not technically "fantasy" or "science-fiction", one can still look at the series "Watchmen" by Alan Moore and find elements of both in it. The set of comics (which can be found in one compilation) is Moore at his best: in a world where super-heroes have been a fact of life for several decades, the murder of the government-employed hero known as "The Comedian" attracts the roving eye of the last vigilante left, a psychotic under the pseudonym of "Rorschach". He visits retired vigilantes, and current ?crime-fighters?, which are now employed by the government. He strives to find the answer to his question: Who's killing the masks?
