They're generally fairly old. Doom patrol is IMO very good but . . . . very, very odd. Preacher & Hellblazer were both fantastic when Garth Ennis wrote them, very accessible but some real depth to them.

I liked it a lot. The series is written by Mike Carey, and based on Lucifer as imagined by Neil Gaiman in The Sandman. I've only read it up to Volume 9 (Crux), though. IMO it's not quite up to the flights of fantasy of Sandman at its best (but then few things are); however, it's a good deal more consistent in style, narrative, and quality. I'd say that if you liked The Sandman, you're probably going to like Lucifer too. I certainly liked it more than Swamp Thing.
Sounds interesting, I'd be pretty limited if I insisted on stuff that's a good as sandman.
