Graphic Novels Challenge

I tried to resist -- I really did, but it was futile. I love graphic novels! Here's my list:

1. Maus - Art Spiegelman

2. Blankets -Craig Thompson

3. Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid On Earth - Chris Ware

4. American Splendor: Unsung Hero - Harvey Pekar and David Collier

5. Dykes To Watch Out For - Alison Bechdel

6. Ethel and Ernest: A True Story - Raymond Briggs

7. The Snowman - Milo Manara

Milo Manara? Isn't he also known for his erotic illustrations?

It's scary that I would know something like this, but I do. ;p

Maus is excellent. I loved Dykes to Watch Out For. That author has a graphic novel about her life, called Fun House, that I want to read.

Do try and find a copy of Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi - it is absolutely excellent.

The book Katya mentions is actually called Fun HOME, though I have accidentally called it Fun House myself. I like it even more than her Dykes to Watch Out For series!

Anyway, I'm glad you didn't resist!
