Joe Casey + Dustin Nguyen + Richard Friend + Rian Hughes + Wildstorm FX's WILDCATS is one of my absolute favorite comics of all time. It is the comic that got me into comics. It showed me that you can have stories that are sexy, slick, and action packed while still being blazingly intelligent and knowingly satirical. It is proof positive that not every "popcorn" story need deaden your brain.
I seriously wrote essays on this series in high school, including a paper comparing it to Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" (there's a TON of similarities, right down to dialogue references).
WILCATS 2.0 w/ Sean Phillips is more noir-ish, but also gets my highest possible recommendation. The trades are out of print, but every comic fan should own them.
