    And query on two more:
    1) Blankets by CraigThompson? It's arguably just memoir, but it's memoir turned into story; unclear how literally accurate rather than emotionally accurate it's meant to be.

    2) And Watchmen? It's its own thing now, but when it was written it challenged superhero genre assumptions to the point of busting them open, didn't it? And it's an odd combination of comic and "files".
    i'd add from hell, v for vendetta....and perhaps warren ellis' freakangels

    It seems to me that anything that China Mieville produces fits along these lines at least to an extent...perdido street station is a semi-lovecraftian masterpiece...
