Have you been wanting to foray into graphic novels, but have no idea where to start? Well, do I have suggestions for you!
Classic comics? Here are a couple I enjoyed:
Daredevil: The Man Without Fear by Frank Miller
Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson
Looking for something a little less superhero-based? The very first graphic novel series I read– and LOVED:
Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan: A virus wipes out every male on earth– all but one.
If you enjoy that, Brian K. Vaughan also wrote this series, which I really liked:
Saga: An intergalactic couple whose love is forbidden go on the lam in the midst of war.
Not your style? How about some options that read like novels?
Blankets by Craig Thompson
Drama by Renee Telgemeier
Ghost World by Daniel Clowes: The classic.
This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki: This book one a 2015 Caldecott honor, the first ever graphic novel to do so. It won a Printz honor this year, as well.
Would you rather be reading non-fiction, graphic-style?
March by John Lewis: The author was present for the events in Selma in 1967, and is now a congressman. This book is both powerful and educational.
Stitches by David Small: This haunting autobiography is beautifully executed.
Go forth and read!
