I'm kicking myself, because I can't remember who recommended it, but I picked up and finished reading Saga Volume 1, a graphic novel, last night. A cross between fantasy and science fiction, the galaxy is involved in a war between a technological society and a magic one. A male of the one side marries a female of the other, and a child is born; the child appears to narrate the events. Volume 1 apparently covers the first six issues of the comic book, and there's a volume 2 out there that I'm going to have to hunt down. Cool stuff.
