A mate of mine introduced me to a manga series called Death Note. Apparently it has been taking the world by storm. Even my young sister is into it religiously. After reading the first volume I have to agree, there has been nothing like this before (at least not the books that I have read). The style of the drawing reminds me of those "hell vs heaven" mangas I read when I was in Malaysia (can't remember the author or name of the manga unfortunately). It is also intelligently written. Check it out.
