Sérgio | 459 comments Please suggest a graphic novel (only one) for our 14th Book Club discussion (during the month of February). You can send it until a week from now.

After that a poll will be set up during a week for us to decide what we will discuss next.

Imagine a gritty version of Toy Story where the toys become real on their way to rescue their owner who has been kidnapped by the Boogieman. Great stuff."

Hi Dora. That's a great book but unfortunately it hasn't been translated to English so most members of the group won't be able to read it.

Could you choose another book?

(If you want to choose another European book you can check out this site to see those who were translated: http://www.eurocomics.info/ )

That's right. You can choose another book Kris.

Oh, I see. I thought we were voting on the compiled list. I will rethink the decision. :)


message 21: by Dora (new)

Dora I'm really sorry, I thought I've seen an english translation on amazon (and thanks for the link, it helped a lot). My next pick is Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth and I'll use this opportunity to second Green Arrow, Vol. 1: Quiver
