Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
When Zita pushes a big red button on a strange device her best friend Joseph is sucked into a portal to another planet. Feeling responsible, Zita follows and finds herself working with an ever-increasing number of aliens to track down her friend. The aliens are great and funny and the story is captivating and easy to follow, unlike a number of other graphic novels I've read. And don't forget that the main character is a spunky girl, another plus. A huge thumbs up from me for Zita!
