Top Ten Graphic Novels:
- Cemetery Girl– With a bit of Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book vibe, and Charlaine Harris’s supernatural heroines, I’m really enjoying this trilogy. Plus, I like the title. I’m a sucker for a good title!
- Scott Pilgrim– This was one of the first graphic novel series I got into, but I loved it. I also really, really love the movie.
- Paper Girls– A more recent graphic novel series for me- it’s a bit like Stranger Things, only with a bunch of kick ass chicks.
- March– So I haven’t actually finished volume one yet, but I was tearing up within the first few pages, so I’m pretty sure this one is going to earn it’s place in my heart.
- The Night Bookmobile– I stumbled across this at the library years ago, and it’s melancholy beauty has stayed with me. I’m still in search of my own Night Bookmobile!
- The Walking Dead– Of course this made the list! It’s the Walking Dead! The tv show has it’s ups and downs, and so does the graphic novel, but a lot of things work better in comic form (Negan, I’m talking about you, dude). I still have to catch up to the more recent volumes!
- My Friend Dahmer– You might not know that I’m a Murderino (what us fans of the podcast My Favorite Murder call ourselves), but I’m sure you’re not surprised to see a graphic novel about Jeffrey Dahmer on my list. The author went to school and was friends with Dahmer when they were teenagers. And this wasn’t the case of “Oh, he was such a quiet, sweet boy”. Nope, Dahmer was weird even as a kid. Maybe his school chums didn’t think he’d try to eat people or make try to make zombie lovers, but they knew he was off.
- Through the Woods– The woods are lovely, dark and deep… and this gave me nightmares that made it hard to sleep!
- Lumberjanes– I’ve only read volume one, but I’m a fan of these girls! I sold a copy of this first volume to a young teen boy recently, and I thought it was awesome that he wanted to read it. Gives me hope!
- Watchmen– this was probably the first graphic novel I ever read, and it was unlike anything I’d read before. It’s pretty much a must read for any fan of graphic novels.
