I can't think of any examples offhand, but two places worth considering might be
English translations (or even the original French) of Tintin and Asterix.

The Book(s) of Frank, by Jim Woodbridge are, in contrast, wordless (unless you
count Smash! Bang! Kerpow! as words).

The _Codex Seraphinianus_ by Luigi Serafini, admittedly a book rather than a
comic, is chock-full of words, all of which are utterly incomprehensible.
