From Hell, the #1 comic to convince people that graphic fiction can be great literature. It's a complete alternate history of the Jack the Ripper killings, with digressions about cyclical time, Freemasonry, the timelessness of murder, and Victorian class struggle. And it has endnotes!
Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
The World's Most Famous Ghosts by Daniel Cohen. Somehow it's traveled around with me for almost the last 25 years. It's not that good, but I've gotten an immense amount of enjoyment out of it.
I'm a huge reader, absolutely addicted to my Kindle. I read a lot more non-fiction than fiction, especially politics, history, and theoretical science. I read comics, too, but only the fancy ones with literary aspirations.
