Laziness Disguised As Artistic Curiosity (See Also: Story of my Life)

While browsing through Borders, trying to decide if I should use my $10 gift card to get 1 person a respectable gift or to lose ten friends, I stumbled across a copy of Marvel's Pride & Prejudice comic book. P&P (haha! Why do I know what that means?) is very popular with nerds. It's been made into a comic book, rewritten to include zombies and ninjas, and I know at least five nerds who went to see the movie even though they were single and nobody coerced them to do it. With the recent release of the Alice In Wonderland comic, I've been looking at my personal library and thinking "hmmm, what books do I want to read again, but don't want to bother with all that text?" So I've produced a modest list of books that I feel could use a more visual component (or "dank pictures" for those of you without useless art degrees).
Someone Make These Books Into Comic Books So I Can Continue Putting Off Upgrading My Cell Phone Plan

The Stranger by Albert Camus (with perhaps a science fiction twist..."it was like knocking three times on the door of unhappiness...PEW PEW PEW!)

Willy Wonka and the Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl

Steal This Book by Abbie Hoffman (I need an illustrated cookbook not covered in anime characters)

Rant by Chuck Palahniuk

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx ( "The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains." I CAN HAS BONDAGE IMAGERY WITH MY POLITICS?)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S Thompson (because I really miss Spider Jerusalem)

The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan ("It is easier to live through someone else than to become complete yourself." I sense a Mystique cameo!)

My bass theory book

Those parts of the Bible I haven't had quoted at me to explain why I'm going to hell

My Husband Betty by Helen Boyd (so I can draw mustaches and evil eyebrows on the panels she appears in, because if I can do that then I win)

Vice Magazine's Do's & Dont's

OMG The Feminine Mystique starring Mystique would be SO TOTALLY BALLER. I want to see concept sketches by New Years!
