I'm a big fan of this guy's work, and really dug this one. In it, he traces the rise and rise and rise of a budding robber baron against the expanding Chicago skyline. They kind of grow together. I don't wanna spoil how it ends, but I was surprised by what didn't happen- and the moral here seems to be that life usually sucks, so live as much as you can when you can. Not too Disney, but a nice thought nonetheless.
