Just bought Maus: a graphic novel about the holocaust. A beautiful but sad story. :)

Do I need to introduce you to Watchmen? The best comics/graphic novel ever IMO. The awesomeness of the graphic parts actually matches the narrative ones.

 

The manga Haruka-na machi e by Jirō Taniguchi. About nostalgic memories of the past. Very powerful.

 

If you know french (I also think it was translated in Dutch) you must check out Peter Pan by Loisel. The story is revisited with very interesting twists, tragedy and very deep moments IMO. A masterpiece.

Of the few I've read I think Arkham Asylum is my favourite. The story is kinda pretentious but the art (by Dave McKean) is great:

It also loosely inspired one of the greatest videogames ever made.
