message 1: by Zeta_comics (new)

Zeta_comics Here's another one that puzzled me: David Small's "Stitches". I haven't read it, what does history has to do with it? (I don't wanna delete recklessly but I want the list to make sense)


message 2: by Allison (new)

Allison Why is Sandman on here?


message 3: by Zeta_comics (new)

Zeta_comics Sarah Pi said when voting it: "The story "Three Septembers and a January" tells the story of one of the most colorful characters in American history, Emperor Norton."

message 4: by Erin (new)

Erin This is fantastic! I am going to use this to help me create a display of Historical Graphic Novels at my library. Thanks!


message 5: by Kamal (new)

Kamal Arora Just getting introduced to graphic novels - am sure the list would help a lot


message 6: by Julie (new)

Julie I agree with above about Stitches. Some of these are memoirs and nonfiction but really have nothing to do with historical events.


message 7: by Ghada (new)

Ghada Great list! But can suggest "Alpha" by Jens Harder. It is more about the history of the universe I must say, but it's an absolute wonder: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...


message 8: by Zeta_comics (new)

Zeta_comics I'm this close of removing "The Arrival" (one I've actually read!), but 9 people voted for it. I love it, but what historic event does it depict??

Why not vote for it yourself?


message 10: by Ronan (new)

Ronan American Born Chinese is a great book but I don't think it's historical fiction.

His Boxers & Saints is better for this list I think.
