Aside from the graphic novels by Marjane Satrapi, Fun Home and Ghost World, my knowledge of graphic novels is quite limited. So when I saw Dewey’s Graphic Novel challenge I knew I wanted to join but where to start?
Luckily Dewey had links to some good resources and Dark Orpheus sent me a fabulous list of suggestions. This Bookgirl didn’t feel so lost anymore!
Today I spent some time at the library looking through the shelves of graphic novels and I have come up with my list (yes, I’m including one from another challenge and yes, I may switch some titles out as I go). Here are the six challenge books I hope to read next year:
- One Hundred Demons by Lynda Barry
- Blankets by Craig Thompson
- The Book of Magic by Neil Gaiman
- Strangers in Paradise by Terry moore
- Maus by Art Spiegelman
- Watchmen by Alan Moore
I’m so excited about this challenge. Also if anyone is thinking of this challenge but needs a little help with the genre, I recommend Graphic Novels: Stories to Change your Life by Paul Gravett. I checked out this book and it’s also been a great resource.
