The Graphic Novels Challenge

December 26, 2008

graphic_novel_button21I’m doing the first level of participation, which requires reading 6 books in 2009.

Here’s my pool, which are the ones I didn’t get to during Dewey’s challenge this year (descriptions copied and pasted from that post):

  • Castle Waiting by Linda Medley: Nymeth did enjoy this one, and the drawing style looks just gorgeous
  • .

  • Alice in Sunderland by Brian Talbott: also thanks to Nymeth’s review.
  • Legends in Exile (Fables Vol. 1) by Bill Willingham: Andi’s favourite graphic novel series
  • Cross-X by Joe Miller: um, did I mention I was a debater in high school? I did LD, not CX, and my big love was extemp, but this one still has me curious. and if you have no idea what I just said that’s ok.
  • Fun Home by Alison Bechdel: Emily and Dewey both recommend it.
  • The Adventuress by Audrey Niffenegger: my library doesn’t have Three Incestous Sisters, but has her newer one. Go figure!
  • Season of Mists (Sandman Vol. 4) by Neil Gaiman: this is the only new addition-I’ve now read the first three volumes, and each one has been better than the last. Here’s hoping that trend continues. :)

    I completely forgot that Audrey Niffenegger wrote graphic novels! I may need to change my list up a bit… :)

    In my opinion the trend does continue! I hope you enjoy all your picks!

    You have some phenomenal choices on there. And Nymeth is right; the trend does continue. The seventh volume is my personal favourite, but they’re all wonderful.

    The Adventuress is pretty cool!

    I’ve never heard of the Adventuress, I’m definitely going to have to check that out. Shoot me an email at gimmemorebooks10 at gmail dot com when you get a chance and I’ll add you to the blog.

    Wooohooo, Fables! Sorry, had to get that out of the way.

    Was just talking to a friend of mine about Fun Home. MUST get to that one this year.

    Jessi, yep!

    Nymeth, I’m so glad to hear that about Sandman. :D

    Memory, awesome!

    Chris, good to know. :D

    Alea, it seems cool-I can’t wait to get to it!

    Laza, done and done. :)

    Andi, you know I have to read Fables because of you! *sigh* All of you people with great taste making me read great books… :p

    you are so brave doing so many challenges!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
