I really do not know anything about comics, but occasionally I am intrigued enough to go to the comic store with the full intention of "getting into" something. Unfortunately it never seems to happen...I am too overwhelmed by the selection and end up with nothing. I am looking for a recommendation for something that might get me interested. To give some parameters, I would rule out *standard* super hero or horror stuff (but am open to something different) In general I am a science fiction/space opera fan. Long Epics with good characters. I would be looking more for story than for art. Any direction would be appreciated.

Thank you
