I left a comment on a recent post regarding how I would like to get better acquainted with current comics/graphic novels but am not sure where to begin at all. Any suggestions for a good read in terms of artwork and storyline would be great. Thanks in anticipation.
Paper Girls is great.ReplyDelete
"Ragnarok" by Walt Simonson might be in your wheelhouse.ReplyDelete
The first few volumes of "Lumberjanes" are hilarious.
'Goddamn this War' by Jacques Tardi is abt WWI.
Will check them out Spencer, thanks!Delete
There are three that continue the storyline of Tom Clancy's 'The Division' console game: NY Survival Guide, Extreme Malis and Broken Dawn. I am not a console player but I found these novels absolutely fascinating reads.ReplyDelete
Intriguing, l will have a look at these…Delete
My local city / town library has lots of graphic novels including a link to borrow some online during COVID / ongoing. The city/ town also has a comic shop which takes part in National Free Comic Day (September).ReplyDelete
A couple I can recommend - Glass Town by Isabel Greenberg (Hardback Bronte juvenilia)
Maus book 1 and 2 about growing up with family stories of the Holocaust is quite powerful - read this about 30 years ago.
I know Maus , it is excellent. My eldest has Glass Town, somewhere, l need to check out the library an£ local comic shop indeed!Delete
It really depends on what you are interested in. If you want to browse a few different comics I would suggest a trip to Deadhead comics opposite the Pear Tree in Edinburgh. Unbelievably still ran by Gaff after all these years.ReplyDelete
Have you considered online comics? Lots of them about.

Online comics , that’s a plan. I used , some time ago, read/ follow an online comic set in the world of Runequest.. It was most enjoyable. I can’t seem to find it now…ReplyDelete
There is a one volume collection of Charleys war available. A beautifully written and illustrated story. Which I can never read without a feeling of anger and sadness.ReplyDelete
