10. The Alcoholic (DC/Vertigo)
(W: Jonathan Ames; A: Dean Haspiel)
Vertigo has released a few different autobiographical graphic novels in hardcover in the past two or three years, to varying degrees of success, but this one is the cream of the crop. Ames is obviously a master storyteller, and his sense of humor has been translated well into the comic medium with the able help of Dean Haspiel.
