A Graphic Novel or Series that consists of short stories/anecdotes by multiple authors/creative teams.

47Time I chose Sleepwalk and Other Stories based on the synopsis.

This comic is really fun and cute Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard, Vol. 1. It's about adventurers telling stories in a bar. The characters are mice, but the stories themselves are in a relatively serious tone. The best story has the storyteller's tab erased.

47Time I thought A Contract With God and Other Tenement Stories would work here, but it's written by the same author. Still it features independent stories, so if anyone is willing to be more lenient on the 'multiple authors/creative teams' part, then it's a good choice. Hell, it's a good choice just because it well written.
