Hivemind suggestions for a newbie

Graphicnovelfilter : I am very much a novice when it comes to graphic novels but have enjoyed the realist works of Joe Sacco (The Fixer & Palestine) and The Burma Chronicles (Guy Delise) initially kickstarted along time ago by my stumbling upon Harvey Pekar (American Splendour). What other graphic novels of this nature should I be tracking down? I'm interested in International Relations / Politics / History / Travel / Journalism / Espionage - as well as more esoteric perspectives on the world - so anything ticking these boxes would be great.
