Let me add:

Astro City (Wonderful super-hero book)
Mage, the Hero Discovered

I'd hold these books (mine and the ones JMS mentioned) up against almost any 
of the best literature of the 20th Century.

Jeez, how could I have omitted Astro City and Mage?  (I like Grendel as well
but it's a bit more uneven.)  They're just terrific works.  Finder I haven't

Marvels and Kingdom Come were also pretty cool, but then that's Alex Ross, who
can do no wrong.
