My Top Ten Favourite Graphic Novels
(This is supposed to be ten favourites in a particular genre. I am tweaking the rules a bit... I was going to do fantasy but that is hard! lol)
1. | My favourite graphic novel series is Fables by Bill Willingham and all the others that joined in over its reign. I started the series in 2009. It finished in 2015. I still have not found another series that compares. It will always be my favourite, I think. The spin-offs are all fun, but they are not as good as the original.
2. | I love Saga, though! I think it is not competing with Fables because one is a fairy tale retelling and this one is a space adventure. It is not quite the same thing at all, so it is hard to compare the two. I enjoy their adventures and cannot wait for more!
3. | And now for something completely different... lol I love Maus. It was one of the first graphic novels I read when I decided to get more into the genre. I am a big fan of anything WWI and WWII related and this really worked for me. I think my graphic novel reading could have gone very differently if I had started with this and Fables in 2009.
4. | I think my favourite character with all the Marvel reading I have done in the last couple years is Deadpool. He is funny and sarcastic and I just love him. I have been reading him on Marvel Unlimited, but one day I would love to own him in trade... (The movie was fun, too!)
5. | After Christmas this year, I splurged and decided to try this series... And then bought all the sequels. I love it! I am a big fan of strong, female characters. Lazarus might not be all that she seems, but she is such a compelling character and I am so excited for Volume 5 in January.
6. In 2015, Comixology had some really good sales and I grabbed the first two volumes of this series really cheap. They compare it to Saga and Buffy. It was so good! I quickly upgraded to trade copies and bought Volume 3 as soon as it was released. I can't wait for a volume 4!
7. One of my goals was to catch up on this series in 2016. And, I did it. YAY! Now if the newest volume would just release all ready. It was supposed to be out a while ago... Then it was supposed to be out today. I still have not received it. It is a series set in a school and all sorts of strange things happen. It is a fun series!
8. Another series I set the goal to catch-up with in 2016 and accomplished. This series is so well done and I definitely recommend it. It is a super hero comic, yes, but it is a diverse super hero comic and the world needs more of those!
9. Another series set in a school! I only started this series this year, but I love it and the fun characters. Compared to what I normally read, this is a very 'normal' comic. lol It is not really, though. On the service it is about the adventures of being in university, but there is a lot more happening!
10. I love Hexed!! I almost forgot to include it because I read it on Scribd and still have not bought all the trades... It is such a good story and I love Lucifer and I wish it was longer!
This was a lot harder than I expected it to be... There were a lot of other ones I wanted to include!
So, honourable mentions:
... And many more...
