Happy Wednesday, everyone!
Today I thought I’d talk about some graphic novels on my TBR. I don’t read a ton of graphic novels, but I really enjoy them. I think they can be fantastic, if done well, and I like supporting it as a genuine form of literature.
Also just a reminder from yesterday that I think my comments are being labelled as spam, so please check your spam folders!
Watchmen by Alan Moore: I’ve just heard so much about this book that I feel like I need to read it. It’s just a classic. I’ve also never watched Watchmen because I wanted to read the graphic novel first, so I should do that first.
V for Vendetta by Alan Moore: ditto for this book. I haven’t watched V for Vendetta, either, and I’m hoping to read this before then. Ditto here about the movie, but I think I’ll just watch this movie soon.
Maus by Art Spiegelman: I’ve heard so many good things about Maus, and I love historical fiction, so this needs to happen soon.
Saga by Brain K. Vaughan: again, I’ve just heard so many good things about Saga and I really want to read it soon. I’ve heard it has a ton of great representation, too, though it does apparently fall into the “bury your gays” trope. But I want to give it a try. Also, a fantasy graphic novel with a woman breastfeeding on the cover? Amazing.
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel: honestly, I just really like Alison Bechdel and want to read more by her.
Stitches by David Small: this sounds amazing and terrifying. It’s a graphic memoir of Small’s experience with cancer and bad healthcare. It sounds really interesting.
The End of the Fucking World by Charles Forsman: I watched the Netflix show of this graphic novel, and I’ve heard the graphic novel isn’t as good, but I still want to read it.
Sabrina by Nick Drnaso: in all honesty, I just added this to my TBR because I like the cover. BUT it also sounds right up my alley. I mean, the Goodreads description starts with “Video games, conspiracy theories, breakdown, murder“, so really, what more could I want?
So those are some graphic novels on my TBR! Have you read any of these? Which should I read first? Do you have any other recommendations? Please let me know!
