Suggestions for graphic novels that can be considered activist works.

I'm interested in the graphic novel as a form of activism and am looking for new works for my collection. Books could deal with anything from politics, gender identity, feminism, racial identity/racism, environment and any other likely subject. There are almost certainly other areas I haven't considered. Obscure or small press are fine, as long as they can be easily ordered or are otherwise available (legally) online.
I've already read these titles, can you suggest others?
Art Spiegelman's Maus
Alison Bechdel Fun Home
Keiji Nakazawa Barefoot Gen
Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis
Guy Delisle Pyongyang: A Journey into North Korea
and I've ordered Joe Sacco's Palestine
