by Marjane Satrapi
The first half of this comic about the childhood of an Iranian girl is more interesting than the second, both in terms of content and formally, but really, it's all pretty good. A look into a world that's easy for an American to be ignorant of-- though it makes you wonder about all the people who aren't as well off as Satrapi was.
