Sandman gets less dark is the series continues, but it began as a
horror comic, and one of the earliest issues has a really really
extremely nasty self-mutilation scene.  I would start with
something lighter, personally.  Or start in Sandman, mid series.
The Books of Magic original graphic novel (not the compilations
of the Books of Magic series, based on the graphic novel, which
came later) has a very similar feel to Sandman (it is also
written by Gaiman) but is not nearly so dark.
