Set to Sea by Drew Weing, which I hailed as the Graphic Novel of the Year (of 2010). With several years to revisit it and reexamine it, I believe it may actually be the Greatest Graphic Novel of All Time (though Shaun Tan's The Arrival is a tough contender).
Publisher Fantagraphics has given it a new print run, and if you haven't seen it yet, don't hesitate (it's available right here). Even if it doesn't resonate for you quite as deeply as it has for me, it is a compelling work of art and a quintessential piece of cartooning.
