Just getting into it!
Read The complete Maus and loved it! Now got Watchmen and Persepolis for Xmas.
“Crossed” volumes 1-14. “Wraith” by Joe Hill. (Includes Welcome to Christmasland 1-6)
Maus, Persepolis, Watchmen, and V for Vendetta.
Enjoyed Persepolis. Really enjoyed watching the movie. At the moment, I am watching The Legend of Korra. Yes, I realize I said watching instead of read. But, the graphic novel that really captures my imagination is the one my daughter is drawing/writing.
@Theresa how amazing having a creative daughter!
@Martina it is fun. She says that to draw is to breathe.
Nimona and Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson. Blankets and Habibi by Craig Thompson. Through the Woods by Alice Carroll. Saga by Brian K Vaugn.
Monstress, Death Note
Sandman, revival, American gods
I am not that much of a fan of them because I want to sink my teeth into something that allows me to grow attached to the characters and to the plot. I feel that graphic novels don’t allow that as much as traditional books. One of my friends did get me a manga edition of Les trois mousquetaires and Pride and Prejudice. However, I think I like these specific graphic novels because I know the stories for both of them rather intimately. I am trying really hard to get out of my comfort zone and read more graphic novels, but every time I try, I can’t get into them. Which is sad.
Maybe try graphic novel memoirs? There’s so many. The Customer is Always Wrong is one of my favorite graphic novels ever. It’s by Mimi Pond.
@Diana I am definitely going to give these books a try. It’s a shame that I don’t like graphic novels that much because so many people love them. I found a series at my local library that is a graphic novel retelling of the First World War. It’s either written by a son of a soldier that had returned home from the war or by one of the grandsons, and it has the most haunting artwork. One of the librarians recommended the book to me when I told him of my situation. Since I always take out WWI non-fiction, I should like these graphic novels.
When I was growing up the closest thing they had to today’s graphic novels was the Classic Comics. They were my first introduction to texts such as Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. In Year 10 I was forced to read Silas Marner and hated it. I couldn’t bear the thought of rereading it for a test so I resorted to the Classic Comic instead! I believe graphic novels are a great teaching tool and I use them in my classroom.
