Graphic Novels make up about twenty percent of my reading stats! After years of being a weekly comic book reader I took a break from comics in the late 90’s and didn't start reading them again until five years ago. Graphic Novels are how I caught up on all the stories that I missed from those years. 

 

For space reasons I read a lot of my favorite comics in the trade paperback format either through the library or lower cost digital editions. Here are some of the Graphic novels I’ve read so far this year:

 

8172  35456  1119046

 

10023145  8429651  13637111

 

17414488  16002121  13227961

 

17131903  17264824  17591893
