Christmas gift: What's a good, non-superhero Comic?

I want to get my daughter into a new Comic / Graphic Novel for Christmas.

She's a bit Anime fan, but rule that out. Lately she has decided to look at thing that are NOT Japanese for a change of pace. Anime overload. And she just has no interest in standard Superheroes. No Spiderman, Batman, Ironman, Superman, X-Men.

I was a comics fan back decades ago, but I am not up with what is current. My thoughts go to things such as Neil Gaiman's Sandman, but what is new and cool and stylish?

I want to walk into Minotaur in Melbourne this afternoon and finish off my Christmas shopping with a small stack of comics for her.
