Both "Maus" and "Watchmen" frequent college bookstores, and yes, "Maus" often makes it into high school curriculums too thanks to the accesbility and ease of reading combined with the emotional power. Along with "Schindler's List" and "The Diary of Anne Frank", it's one of the best ways for we later generations to even begin to understand the experience of the Holocaust. "Watchmen" probably doesn't make it into high schools very often on account of its value is more in terms of story telling structure and literary theory, which is more suited for college.
