  1. Pride of Baghdad, by Brian K. Vaughan

  2. Hm … my favourite comic at the moment is “The Walking Dead” followed closely by “Fables” – but I think that may be because I am still in Halloween mode.

    I loved “Dark Holes” by Charles Burns, and “Blankets” … And the “Persepolis” books (I include “Embroideries in this) are just fantastic.

    All that being said … I think for recommendation purposes, I am going to have to go with …. Scott Pilgrim. Not only is it set in the city I was born in (yay!) but it is quirky and fun, too.

    Thanks for this post and the giveaway – Beautiful Darkness has been on my to-read list forever!

  3. Ok I am going to have to say James Pattersons Witch and Wizard: Battle for Shadowland. I Loved this book! and James Patterson is an amazing author!

    Oh and Did I mention that I absolutely LOVED Beautiful Creatures and I would love to win an ARC of Beautiful Darkness hehe

    Thanx for the giveaway!

    My Bloody Fairy Tale

  4. I haven’t read many but I was impressed with/really like The Invention of Hugo Cabret and American Born Chinese. Both are definitely worth looking into!

  5. Darn it…just forgot the name but I read a really funny one by Hale (just forgot her first name…author of goosegirl) about Rapunzel in the Wild West…really funny and cute…
    Thanks! Been wanting this book! rivkarno1(at)hotmail(dot)com

  6. A huge surprise to me was when I read the Twilight Graphic Novel because even though I enjoyed the books, I hate the movie! But the graphic novel is so much subtler and much more like how I initially imagined the characters to be like.
    And I don’t know if it’s true, but I heard there making or maybe already made a Mortal Instruments graphic novel which I would love to get my hand on!

  7. I agree with Vicky N. I love the Twilight graphic novel! and im also looking forward to reading the Mortal instruments and vampire academy graphic novels

  8. Thanks so much for holding this giveaway! If there is one graphic novel you should check out it’s One Piece! It’s a japanese graphic novel (or manga) but one of the greatest storylines I have ever read and the characters are hilarious 🙂

  9. Thanks for the giveaway! I read Maus for my teaching reading and literature for young adults class and I loved it. It was so incredible and a really powerful commentary in the Holocaust. I would recommend it to anyone with a semi-strong stomach or an older audience.

  10. The Vampire Knight series is a good one. Also looking forward to the Alexia Tarabotti series graphic novels. Love that so many good books are getting the graphic novel treatment.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. I love the Buffy season 8 comic’s

    Also I want to read the Sandman comics as well as the Fables.


  12. I’ve never really read any graphic novels or comics. I’ve wanted to read some manga, like Dragon Ball Z or Vampire Knight, but I’ve never gotten around to it. I did read some Deadpool comics, but I read them online and I had no clue if I was reading the first one first. 😛
    I love Batman, the X-men, and Spiderman in general though…one day I’ll pick up the comics 😉 lol

    Thanks for the chance to win Beautiful Darkness 🙂

  22. Mmmm I’ve never read any graphic novel, but I would like to try with Twilight or VA, because I love the books!

  23. Mmmm I’ve never read any graphic novel, but I would like to try with Twilight or VA, because I love the books!

  24. Tina Soetzenberg says

    Hmm….I haven’t read a graphic novel before and didn’t think i ever will but when i heard Vampire Academy was being made into a Graphic Novel i practically screamed [with joy of cause] Dimitri Belikov would get a girl to do anything!

    Since the movie is taking its time the G-novel is a way of bringing the amazing series to life and we sorta get to see the charactors descriptions….[facially of cause]

    I really can’t wait….but i’m scared my parents won’t buy it they already have a shopping list with at least ten books!!

    Thanks 🙂

  25. The Walking Dead is currently my favorite.

  26. Charmed comics by Zenescope =D

  27. Thanks for that opernationnal contest (I am french).
    I would like to read the Twilight graphic novel, it seems really good (I have already read the books).

  28. Analea Rose says

    The Maximum Ride series in manga form are pretty good

  29. The only graphic novel I can think of right now is “Avalon High´” by Meg Cabot – pretty good! Though I would love to read Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, The Long Way Home!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  30. the only one ive read was the graphic novel Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi,.. not bad 🙂 thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  31. I absolutely adore Crimson Hero, it’s a manga series and it’s super fun (and funny!) to read. The main character is a really strong and athletic female volleyball player, which is really inspirational to see. Cheers 🙂

  32. I loved the Watchmen. It was wonderful. You should check it out if you haven’t.

  33. Forgot the authors for the Watchmen are Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons 🙂

  34. I really love “Fables” and “Blankets”. “American Born Chinese” is also fabulous!

  35. I haven’t had good luck with graphic novels but would be willing to try some based on the awesome recommendations here!

  36. The graphic novel I really enjoyed reading was Homecoming by Patricia Briggs. It’s a prequel of how Mercy and Adam first met.

  37. I haven’t really read any graphic novels, but I’m interested in trying them out! I’ve seen some samples of the artwork in some and it’s fantastic. One that I’ll definitely be reading is the Vampire Academy graphic novel set to be released next year some time. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  38. I have just read one graphic novel-The Killing Joke .It was quite intriguing.

  39. I’m in the middle of The Walking Dead series and it’s pretty stellar

  40. Didn’t read the Kick-Ass comic book (yet) but I loved the movie 🙂

  41. I have not read it, but I would like to try reading the graphic novel Watchmen. As for comics I have read tons of them b/c my brother is a cartoonist. I don’t have a particular fave… but I like the classic x-men (or I did ages ago when I read them). =) Thanks! seescootread[at]gmail[dot]com

  42. Tales of the Vampire Slayer is one of my favorites. It features Slayers that came before Buffy and I just started reading Anne Elizabeth’s Pulse of Power.

    Thanks for the great giveaway.

  43. I recommend La Corda d’Oro by Yuki Kure. It’s a great music manga about this girl getting a magic violin and all of the people and lessons that she learns because of it. It’s so awesome, I love it.

  44. My manga/graphic novel recommendations are Angel Sanctuary by Kaori Yuki and Anita Blake by Laurell K. Hamilton. I really enjoyed both series. There are several I’m looking forward to like The Vampire Academy Series and The Hollows.

  45. I would try the Dark Hunter series comic books by Sherrliyn Kenyon.

  46. I love Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. Thanks for the chance to win!

  47. jmspettoli says

    Anything X-Men I love even though I’m more of a manga girl. I love Clamp so some of my favourite mangas are Tsubasa, xxxHolic, and Cardcaptor Sakura.

  48. I’ve only read one graphic novel (okay, it’s manga but it still counts right?) but I really liked it so I recommend Vampire Knight.
    It was pretty cool 🙂

  49. Duygu Ezilmez says

    V for Vendetta is an awesome comic book, but may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

  50. I would love to read the Twilight Graphic Novel! I also have The Imposter’s Daughter and am going to read that soon!
