I highly recommend everything in the American Splendor series by Harvey Pekar. This volume is co-written with his wife, about the year after Harvey was first diagnosed with cancer.

Don't be fooled: Gorey's books are NOT for children! Bizarre, surreal, disturbing, and funny, I recommend this book to lovers of Shel Silverstein and Twin Peaks.

This is the series that lured me into graphic novels. Even superhero comic fans agree this is one of the greatest achievements in the history of American comics.
