Where to start?

Post by Abigail R » 06 Aug 2018, 21:04

What are the best graphic novels or comic books for a new reader to start with? I have never read anything in the genre but would love to expand and give it a try?

Suggestions for a newbie?

I only started reading them a few years ago.

The main advice I can offer is to pick something that would interest you anyway.

What do you typically enjoy, in any format (reading/watching)?
If we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

We've all got light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.

I think graphic novels/comic books should be seen more as formats rather than genres, that way you just have to pick one that already is in your preferred genre and see if the style of presentation is to your liking. I guess kind of like Gravy already said then. 🤔 :lol:

Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen. Because it's hilarious. And one of the most relatable books for introverts.
