Being french, you'll find that all this is very oriented as all countries don't have the same access to the same titles and the translation issues may also have helped or handicaped some of them getting to France or getting out of it. My point is that I'll comment on what I know of the french versions of the titles (except for a few for which I've had the opportunity to compare with originals).
Not all of those titles will be available abroad depending on where you live but if you ever feel like giving a go at one of them, please do not hesitate to ask me for help/advice.
First shelf is mainly a fantasy one with true classics :
The black moon chronicles (Chroniques de la lune noire) :
La porte écarlate (The scarlet gate ?) :
SHA :A very good duo here with Olivier Ledroit and noone else than Patt Mills himself (yep, the vey same you're thinking about).
666 :In the vein of the black moon chronicles (same author and drawer who worked on Requiem spin-offs) this comics makes little compromise. Explicit sex, violence, swearing, blasphemy, dark humour, you name them, you'll find all of that in this series with added references to many classics (though it became one itself). The post-apocalyptic setting and the many heavy metal/punk reference will rejoice 2000AD fans as well as anyone with a love for dark humour and bare breasts every page...
Lanfeust of Troy :
For this lot I won't go from left to right but I'll try to procede by circles.
At the centre of it all, lies :
The Incal :
The Metabarons :
The 4th power
Leo Roa :
The Nikopol Trilogy :
Philippe Druillet :
The ABC warriors :
So now we can move to another shelf, this one
ARAWN :Clearly and shamelessly inspired by Slaine, Conan and all sorts of Moorcock, Tolkien and fantasy standards, Arawn still manages to succeed where other just "try". If you love the classics cited above, you'll feel at home like if you were reading a tome of Slaine you had missed...

Next shelf gets a little further away, apart from the Spawn comics (which though excellent are of little relevance to our subject) there is the whole Freaks' squeele series.
Freaks' squeele :
Last shelf and 2 series I'd like to recommend you :
Judge Dredd :
Last but definitely not least :
