Doctor 13: Architecture and Morality by Brian Azzarello (2007): A skeptic must team up with a band of increasingly impossible characters in order to save his teenaged daughter.

At first I thought I’d found the perfect YA graphic novel - in addition to Chiang’s clean illustration and Azzarello’s visual and literal puns, this book hosts a talking Nazi gorilla, a centuries-old vampire, an early hominid just thawed from the glacier and speaking only French, and a heavily-accented ghost pirate with a flying ship. But then the book takes a metafictive turn that, while still understandable, rather rewards the more-than-casual DC comics fan. I had not been aware that the aforementioned characters were all decades-old DC properties, nor did I recognize all of the villains as their real-life DC comics writer-counterparts, but I still enjoyed this story. However, I did get the (accurate) sense that I was missing something, so I’m not sure that this would be my first choice for a YA pick.
