Recommended Reading 101: Graphic Novels

Posted April 1, 2017 by Bonnie in Recommended Reading 101 / 3 Comments

Taking classes and getting excited for the assigned reading was always my favorite part of school. Using that same concept and turning different genres, locations, and subjects into a course of their own, you could come up with your own assigned reading. These would be my picks for recommended reading, what would yours be?

Graphic Novels 101

With the rise in graphic novel popularity, these are a few I feel have been glanced over but are definitely deserving of a read.

If you’re looking for a story about a housewife that is more than she seems…

Lady Killer is the story of Josie Schuller, a picture-perfect wife and mother who kills people in her spare time before picking the kids up from school. This one is a ton of gritty fun with some unexpected laughs and gorgeous (yet bloody) illustrations. Volume 2 comes out in a few short months.

If you’re looking for true crime in the form of a graphic novel…

…then you should pick up Green River Killer. This is the true story of a serial killer in the 1980s, responsible for the deaths of dozens of women in the Seattle area. The most interesting thing about this novel is the author is the son of Tom Jensen, the detective who was put in charge of this case.

If you’re looking for a story about zombies that isn’t The Walking Dead…

Revival, Vol. 1: You’re Among Friends is the introduction to a small town that is put under quarantine after the dead come back to life. They’re far from the people they were in life, but they aren’t the straight-forward out for brains zombies. After a brutal murder though, the dead coming back to life are suddenly the least of their worries.

  1. This is an area of books that I admit I know very little about. I think I’ve read three or four graphic novels but none of the big ones — Saga, I think?
    I actually had Lady Killer in my TBR on GR and had no idea it was a graphic novel. I think this makes me want it even more!
    I am also really intrigued by the idea of true crime graphic novels. I had no idea this was even a thing! But it’s pretty cool.
    Lol I bet all the poor zombie gn are so sad TWD is such a huge force of pop culture.
