Fables, although it's a vertigo book so some 14 year olds might be a bit too young
Bone might be a bit more appropriate.
Barry Ween not sure if it's still in print as it's a bit older but bloody hilarious

+1 for Bone.

Or Clan Apis if he's cool enough to not think its dorky. (because it's awesome). At that age it might seem to little-kid to his tough teenager sensibilities. :)

Usagi YoJimbo, if you want to get him started on an awesome series.

If you don't mind more violence, of the ritualized sort, Lone Wolf & Cub is sure to satisfy a teenage boy

I read Akira around that age, and I turned out fine. Grown man, playing with little metal dolls. . . well.. hmm.

Oh and if he's a good and proper nerd, Eric Shanower does a pretty awesome retelling of the Trojan War
