Actual comic books, Asterix and Calvin and hobs are both huge favourites here.

DD2 is also totally adicted to Garfield, when not reading Twilight and the 'sodding. hunger games. (Whole concept gives me the creeps)

PG Wodehouse might work - especially if they've seen a Fry and Laurie adaptations and liked it.
