Graphic novels are ALL THE RAGE right now!
I don’t know why I shouted ALL THE RAGE. But they are ALL THE RAGE! Here are a few — okay, a lot — of graphic novels and comic books that you should check out!
(Click a thumbnail to see the full book cover.)
The Popular Kids
You’ve probably read one, two, or all of these series. You probably see them everywhere, so it’s a good thing that these series are great!
The Indie Favorites
You might have heard of these, or maybe not. Maybe some of your classmates have read them and are super smug about how great they are. Don’t let those hipsters win; pick up one of these books today!
The best stories are always retold! They had amazing past lives, and now these books have been reincarnated with illustrations and speech bubbles. One day they’ll have an identity crisis and there might be a graphic novel vs. original novel showdown, but for now… you decide which edition is better!
You might not have grown up with these, but I certainly did (because I’m way older than you). But that shouldn’t stop you from reading these classics — some of the authors are still writing and illustrating, and the others are still just as hilarious as they were in 12 B.C.
Just kidding. I’m not that old.
So… How’d I do on this super duper whooper long list — did I miss anything? Leave a comment below if you think a comic book or graphic novel is missing from this list!
Nancy’s favorite book/series from this blog post is Foxtrot. Wait, no. Robot Dreams. Hm, scratch that — Dear Dumb Diary. Origami Yoda? Oh, Calvin and Hobbes, for sure… but Jedi Academy is so good… AHHHH DON’T MAKE HER CHOOSE! SHE LOVES THEM ALLLLLLLL!
