"Starman" was a book from DC that came out in the mid 90's that I totally missed because it didn't seem to feature enough guns, claws and boobs for my 12-year-old tastes. I finally got around to reading the entire series a few years back and instantly fell in love. Not only is the story great and seemingly timeless, but the themes of family, responsibility, honoring the past and maturing into adulthood really struck a chord in me at the exact right moment in my life. Lately I've been rereading the entire series again and it's just as good the second time around. James Robinson was the writer for the entire series, and wrote such a perfect ending that DC has thankfully left the character alone since. It's a superhero book that has a very specific tone and voice, and really went against much of what was being published at the time. Its one of my favorite books of all time and highly recommended.
