Need the name of a dark, gritty comic series

Boom! Thwak! War and Comics

PS240: Boom! Thwak! War and Comics. I teach in the political science department at a small liberal arts college, and I'm fortunate to have quite a bit of flexibility in new course design. For 2010-2011, I'm putting together a new course on war and comics/graphic novels. Awesome, right? I know. But what else goes on the syllabus? [more inside]

epistolary comic books and books

Has anyone done an epistolary comic book? It's not obvious to me how such a project could work and I'm interested in seeing what, if anything, artists have done with the form. I'm also interested in recommendations for good epistolary novels. I've already looked at the wikipedia page on epistolary novels and I plan to read some of the novels mentioned there.
