Book: Blankets

Last night and tonight, I finished the graphic novel Blankets by Craig Thompson. It's his account of his childhood, growing up in a severely religious household, his first love, and disillusionment (with all of the above).

Are graphic novels often autobiographical, or have I just happened to pick up those ones? The other one I read recently was Mom's Canter by Brian Fies, also autobiographical (or at least familial-biographical). I'd recommend both of these books.
