Blue Pills by Frederik Peeters

If someone told me that I would a) read a comic book about HIV and b) actually be incredibly moved by... I'd inform them that they had no conception of how truly shallow I could be. Anyhooooo...

This is a very heartwarming book. Never too in your face about its premise, never so harrowing or blatant that you cringe at the pain of the protagonist. It even has wonderful surreal touches in it eleventh hour (something that almost always wins me over).
