The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Gaiman captured my imagination from the opening when a man named Jack enters a family's house and kills them.  The only thing that goes wrong is an infant boy escapes his crib, crawls outside and disappears.  Where did he go? Why can't Jack find him?  That is the tale this magical storyteller crafts in "The Graveyard Book".

Frankenstein: Agent of SHADE Vol. 1: War of the Monsters

Writer:  Jeff Lemire
Artist:  Alberto Ponticelli

What happens when Frankenstein, the Bride of Frankenstein, a werewolf, a mummy, a vampire,  and the Creature from the Black Lagoon team up?  You get one of the best comics on the market.  It sounds like a classic movie monster slugfest but Jeff Lemire chose to go in a different direction.
