Top Ten Tuesday: So Graphic

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share lists on the following:

January 31: All about the visuals: Top Ten Favorite Graphic Novels/Comics or Ten Comics on My TBR or Top Ten Favorite Picture Books

Hmm, this week’s list isn’t quite one I’m prepared for…  I’m not a graphic novel or comic reader and picture books aren’t really my thing so I’m not exactly sure how to approach this week’s list.  I can count the number of graphic novels I’ve actually read on one hand.  So.  I think this is what we are going to do.  I am going to go browsing over at Goodreads and see what graphic novels catch my eye.

Ten Graphic Novels that I would totally give a chance if they crossed my path.

  1. V for Vendetta Came across this one first in my Goodreads search and felt it fairly fitting for the political climate we find ourselves in currently in America.  I also enjoyed the movie based on this series.  I would give this GN a chance.
  2. Watchmen This one kept coming up in the GN searches on Goodreads so it seems to be a standard as far as GN go.  Who am I buck tradition in a genre I know little about.  I would also try this one.
  3. Habibi This was the first GN suggestion that looked truly intriguing it is based in the Islamic world and from the few pictures I found in review posts this GN looks beautiful.
  4. Star Trek: Ongoing, Volume 1 Had to have my Star Trek on this list somewhere.  I enjoy the new dogma developed by J.J. Abrams so why not start there but in all actuality I would read any Star Trek GN that crossed my path.
  5. Lucifer, Book One (Lucifer, #1) From my understanding, the hit show Lucifer on Fox is loosely based upon this spin-off GN series.  Sure why not I do enjoy the show after all.
  6. The Dark-Hunters, Vol. 1 (Dark-Hunter Manga, #1) I have known for some time now that Ms. Kenyon had partnered with an artist to bring her Dark Hunter world to the world of Magna.  While I haven’t actively sought them out I think it would be cool to take a look at a visual representation of the characters and world that I enjoy.
  7. Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 1: Legacy Okay, this is simply on this list because I enjoyed the movie.
  8. Murder Mysteries This one looked so interesting it actually made it to my to-read list.  The story line sound really good.
  9. 6881206 I’m a fan of The Time Traveller’s Wife and while I’ve not read anything else by the author this sounds fascinating. A bookmobile that carries every book a reader has read!  Yes, please, imagine what you could learn about yourself.
  10. Cairo Another GN set in a Muslim society.  Sounds like something that would interest me.  Looks beautiful as well.

Well, there you have my list of potential TBR graphic novels that I wouldn’t pass by.  What other ones could you recommend to someone who isn’t familiar with the format?

  1. I never read a comic book.So The only ones I read were the VA and Percy Jackson graphic novels. But we did something a little different. Allyson added some comics she read on her list.
