Blankets by Craig Thompson

This is one of those coming-of-age stories that perfectly encapsulates teenage curiosity in all its myriad forms. In it, Thompson reminisces about his adolescent relationship with his family, his first lover, and his beliefs. All three of these bonds ricochet with the others and eventually spit him out into adulthood. Thompson's hauntingly beautiful artwork brings the Wisconsin winter to life—it's easy to spend a long time admiring a single page's details.
