Perspective references

I've been having this issue in my perspective drawings lately where I can't just figure out what to fill all of the empty space with. I can come up with plenty of references for textures and whatnot, but then I just can't quite decide how to do the line drawing for the textures.
I'm trying to find a good reference for this sort of thing; some kind of collection of nothing but *detailed*, perspective line drawings (preferably realistic over stylistic), no toning. Just something that I can reference to see how other illustrators have done the line drawings for, say, waterfalls, rocky cliffsides, all sorts of things like that.
Anyone have any good recommendations?
And if the answer comes down to "buy comics!", it seems to me that most comics only have a very small amount of detail to them. So if there are any particular ones that I should look for that do go very far with the details, that would help to.

Check out Geoff Darrows (artist) comics, especially Hardboiled (written by frank miller, isbn: 1-878574-58-2).

Got tons of perspective and details !

Blah. Sold out at Borders. I'll keep looking around...
Any other suggestions?

Here is a link from Stahlberg's Sticky:

Not sure if it is exactly what you are looking for, but boy is it long.

Not quite. I'm looking for line drawing references, not really techniques.
Thanks anyway though.

Unless I can find hardboiled, I may just be stuck buying a crapload of comics.
