Nat Turner by Kyle Baker

A graphic novel that tells the life-story of Nat Turner in his own words - taken from his confessions in 1831 - but mostly through very powerful and (obviously, violent) drawings. Although the subject matter of this book is very disturbing, it also portrays a future of hope on the last few pages. The drawings alone are enough reason to pick up this book.
