I totally agree. In fact, I think some of the best fictional comics strongly incorporate elements of autobiography (I'm thinking of Jeff Lemire's Essex County). It's an interesting phenomenon that, as your theme becomes more specific, it actually has more of a universal appeal. Everybody goes through the same things, as much as a person thinks they're alone in a situation, and I think comics (which are probably the most personal form of art) really effectively get across that feeling of "this-is-happening-to-others-too."
