Top Ten, written by Alan Moore. A comic about the day to day lives of a group of (super powered) police officers. Includes the idea that the night sky was once entirely black, but that the presence of the white stars shows that the forces of good are slowly gaining ground.
A nearly identical idea shows up at the very end of the first season of True Detective. Nic Pizzolatto (writer of True Detective) has said that this idea was one of the key points of the entire series.
