Asterios Polyp is a 'paper architect.' None of his designs have ever been built, but he's still widely respected. He's also super smart (too smart for his own good?) and really fun to read about. And he has a crisis. And it's beautiful.

Asterios Polyp is the first graphic novel I've really fallen in love with since I graduated from high school. It's the first one I've read that feels like it was really and truly written and drawn with an adult audience in mind.
