Looking for graphic adult content... wait, let me rephrase that

What are your top five items for an adult graphic novel collection in a public library? Our system is looking at the possibility of creating a new section for adult graphic novels (right now we have the majority of them in YA, and the remainder interfiled through non-fic), and I was asked my opinion on new titles that we could buy to fill out the ranks.

I've read the previous ask threads about this here (pulpy actiony graphic novels)
, here (adult dramatic graphic novels)
, and here (graphic novels for "matrure readers"
. Great suggestions, all-around!
I thought I'd post a new thread since my question is more specific.
If you went into a public library wanting to read a graphic novel for an adult audience, what would be the top five items you'd be looking for? I'm going to hold off mentioning what titles we currently have, since I think that part of this would be to move our existing collection around, in addition to buying new materials.
Also: to any experience librarians reading this, what's your system's method for adult graphic novels? Interfiled or its own section, and how is that working for you?
