Want to read a graphic novel, but not sure where to start?
Then check out 500 Essential Graphic Novels: The Ultimate Guide, which is edited by Gene Kannenberg. You can find it in the King Reference Collection at PN6710 .K35 2008. This book is divided into 10 parts (categories include adventure, non-fiction, fantasy, humor, etc.). Each comic listed includes a representative graphic, a plot summary, a review, and further readings. The end of the book has a publisher's information section that will help you track down a particular graphic novel. There's also four indexes organized by appropriate age leve, artist, writer, and title.
It's fun to just flip through for suggested readings, but it could also be used for more serious research. What are you waiting for? Go find a new graphic novel to read....(I recommend Strangers in Paradise)
