New Booklist - Graphic Novels!

Graphic Novels -- the adult version of picture books, in which stories are told via a combination of images and words -- have been gaining in popularity every since the groundbreaking Watchmen, by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, was released in the late 1980s.

But not all of the stories are superheroes, with capes, flying and slam-bam action. Some of the most interesting graphic novels today fall into the general fiction and/or biographies categories.

Glory B., at the downtown library, has compiled a list of recommended Graphic Novels (without Superheroes) for your reading pleasure. Click here to check out her list.

If you're a fan of this genre, or at least have sampled some in the past, what's your favorite Graphic Novel?
