Books or graphic novels with very sarcastic characters that might be suitable for YA readers?

I'm looking for books (or comics) with flawed, sarcastic, cynical, ironic or even jaded characters in them, that aren't slapstick/fart joke heavy.
Outsider humour especially welcome. Superhero graphic novel series would be brilliant, or an author recommendation. It's for a boy and he doesn't mind grizzly but hates earnest and emo stuff because they do that at school.
He isn't a big reader but he's very good at it, so literacy level isn't as important as good flawed characters.
my last question about websites for him turned out brilliantly, thanks
