Graphic Novels & NY Times

Click link in the title above to read article. You may need to register to read it, that's free. The New York Times will be ranking best selling graphic novels, including manga. I read several manga online & I enjoy them quite a bit. They're a little too rich for my blood, especially since they're so quick to read, but I'm hopeful our libraries will buy some series to keep the kids happy. I hope to order some from the library, notably Persepolis (sp??) and Watchmen. I hope to use the list to find others.

There is also a new site, related to Bookreporter.com, called Graphic Novel Reporter that has all kinds of new info, including a blog and a newsletter, all related to graphic novels.

I hope you read Persepolis. It's a really good book! I have Watchmen here to read, but I haven't got to it yet!

Kailana~I do plan to read Persepolis, there has been so much great buzz about the author's work I couldn't miss it. Watchmen I saw in the bookstore, but I've already indulged myself too much in the book budget department & plan to look for it at the library. Will you review it?
