Comics for Adults

W. Barringer
The list author says: "Here is a list of comics for people who like darker themes, ideas, situations, and graphics."
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic
"A nonfiction graphic novel. The protagonist explores a cold relationship with her father, which is complicated by his death and the revelations about his life."
Watchmen
Watchmen
"Class must-read fiction graphic novel. As with all Alan Moore novels, there is a lot of text, but it's all very good."
V for Vendetta
V for Vendetta
"My favorite Alan Moore graphic novel. Lots of text. The characters in the graphic novel are much more fleshed out than those in the movie based on the graphic novel."
The Walking Dead:  Compendium One
The Walking Dead: Compendium One
"Gross, brutal, bleak. I highly suggest the Compendium over the individual volumes, as it takes a good bit for the story to get rolling. If you're worried about spoiling the TV series, the graphic novel and TV show split very early on."
Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth
Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth
"A Batman Arkham Asylum comic. Dave McKean is an amazing artist, and his visuals make this a particularly haunting foray into Gotham City."
Y: The Last Man, Vol. 1: Unmanned
Y: The Last Man, Vol. 1: Unmanned
"The first of a series. Y: The Last Man explores a post-apocalyptic world where there is only one man. Humorous in parts, but rather serious in others. A very good series."
The Fountain
The Fountain
"The graphic novel published before the film, when Aronofsky had lost hope to be able to make the film. At times confusing and thin, it has some very good moments as it explores the relationship among life, death, and rebirth."
Black Hole
Black Hole
"A very disturbing comic about a disease that ravages young teenagers in various ways. Unsettling visuals."
