New Adventures of Hitler scans
New Adventures of Hitler was a fantastically bonkers comic.
Grant Morrison simply took the germ of an idea based in fact - that Adolf Hitler had come to Liverpool to visit family sometime in his youth and constructed a surreal, wonderful, bizarre story around it.
It was first published is some Scottish arts mag, which also had Pat Kane of Hue & Cry writing for it. Pat Kane decided it was a disgrace and promptly resigned in protest (I don't imagine the reading figures went down all that much). Eventually it was reprinted in Crisis magazine but it has never been reprinted and remains one of Grant Morrison's lost works.
Anyway, the point of this post - the scans for it appeared here (via here) and you should really go and have a look.
