If we're talking graphic novels I'd say that Spiegelman is head and shoulders above any other candidate. I like Sacco's work a lot, but I don't think it has the literary qualities for the Nobel. Satrapi's done some nice stuff, but overall she's too lightweight. Someone like Alan Moore, perhaps, has the breadth of work, but I can't see them considering anyone who has done a lot of work for mainstream comics and too much of his work is pastiche. The same applies to Grant Morrison/Frank Miller/Neil Gaiman (Gaiman also has his novels, of course, but again they're too lightweight).
