My Graphic Novel/Comic Book Wish List
Okay, so I very recently discovered how amazing graphic novels really are (yes, yes, shame on me) and I’ve compiled a list of them that I want to gobble up the very first chance I get.
Since I haven’t read any of them, what I’m going to do is post a link back to the blog/site that made me want to read them in the first place.
And so, in no particular order..
#1 : Courtney Crumrin And The Night Things – Ted Naifeh
I love the illustration already, and I found an amazing review here: Omphaloskepsis
#2 : Daytripper – Gabriel Ba, Fabio Moon
Review found at: Good Ok Bad
This blog is jaw-droppingly good. The amount of detail that is put into each review leaves me speechless.
#3: Maus – Art Spiegelman
This one needs no introduction, and yes, I haven’t read it yet. Baby steps. I will, pinky swear.
#4: Asterios Polyp – David Mazzucchelli
Again, Good Ok Bad.
And because I trust my Goodreads recommendations,
#5 : Marvel 1602 – Neil Gaiman
Needless to say, after Good Omens, Neil Gaiman is top priority. I’m thoroughly enjoying Neverwhere, and I just wish I didn’t have my exams at the moment.
#6: Robot Dreams – Sara Varon
#7: The People Of Paper – Salvador Plascencia
#8: Friends With Boys – Faith Erin Hicks
#9: Anya’s Ghost – Vera Brosgol
#10: Camp Foxtrot – Bill Amend
I’ve been wanting to read Foxtrot for AGES, and I just never seem to get around to it.
There are tons more that I want to get my hands on, but I think I’ll stop here. (Ten is a nice round number)
I’ve been wanting to read Scott Pilgrim for a very long time, as well – and I finally did last night! Well, the first three issues, anyway. (See why so many of my to-reads stay un-read? Scott Pilgrim just interrupted Gaiman who interrupted Llosa.)
Also, Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant. I’m a huge fan of her webcomic, but I want the book!
Have you read any of these? Do you think any of them warrant a, “What is wrong with you, woman?! Read that NOW “? Are there any you loved that aren’t on this list? Let me know!
