Top Ten Graphic Novels

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Graphic Novels. I have read some graphic novels that I liked, so I figured I could do this one.


Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson - This whole series is great. It's got a group of girls at summer camp. The camp leader is weird and they end up fighting a bunch of monsters and other paranormal stuff.

Jane the Fox And Me

Jane, The Fox, And Me by Fanny Britt - This is a fantastic story about a girl who was bullied at school, but she reads Jane Eyre and makes friends with a fox. Okay, the story sounds dumb when I say it like that, but the artwork is phenomenal!

American Vampire

American Vampire by Scott Snyder - I love everything vampire, even though this particular series is pretty gory. It's a good time travel type story.

Delilah Dirk

Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant by Tony Cliff - These books are so much fun. They star a badass lady spy and her sidekick the Turkish Lieutenant.

Ms. Marvel

Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson - No list of awesome graphic novels would be complete without the Ms. Marvel series. A muslim teenager in New York finds out she is the next Ms. Marvel. She has to balance saving humanity with her parents' expectations of her and her burgeoning feelings for her friend.

Read or Dream

Read or Dream by Hideyuki Kurata - I love this manga series about three sisters who love books so much that the paper loves them back and they can control paper to fight bad guys. It's so much fun!

Case of the Team Spirit

The Case of the Team Spirit by John Allison - This is a British graphic novel series that is so cute. It's about middle school kids who have super powers and have to solve mysteries. The English slang is great, and there's a dictionary in the back so you can figure out what they're saying.

Yo Miss

Yo! Miss by Lisa Wilde - This is a graphic novel about a teacher's experience teaching at a high risk high school in NYC. It was interesting and I admired her spirit.

Night Bookmobile

The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger - This is about a woman who discovers a bookmobile that disappears during the day and houses her entire reading history. The artwork is beautiful.

Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - This is a graphic novelization of the novel. I love the novel a lot, and I enjoyed seeing the depictions of the characters. Silas is my favorite (spoiler: he's a vampire).
