In Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics", he postulates that the more "cartoony" and less detailed a character's features are, the more easily the reader can identify with that character. This holds up pretty well in my experience.

The Maus effect.

Is there an English translation of this?

 

This is a realistic look at the Japanese mindset of the "warrior" class that drove actions during WW-II (also see the movie "Letters from Iwo Jima").

 

The art also makes an interesting statement. The rendition of the backgrounds and dead people is quite realistic/detailed, that of the faces of living people is almost "cartoonie".
