Ghostopolis by Doug TenNapel
Garth Hale has an incurable disease, but he's just as shocked as anyone when a horse skeleton steals him away to Ghostopolis, the land of the dead. The dead kingdoms are ruled by the evil Vaugner, and Garth (with the help of his Grandpa) has to save the dead world. The illustrations are clean and simple and the writing is junior high/middle school snarky. Some of my usual graphic novel readers won't like this, but some underclassmen will. It was "cute" and a fun read.
