Stabbing It's that time again and we are accepting nominations for November & December 2016 Graphic Novel of the Month. The book with the most votes being November's book and the runner up being December's book.

You may nominate several books if you like but to be fair I will be going down the list taking the first selection mentioned by each user until I get enough books to vote on. I'm not really sure if there is a limit on the number of books you can vote on in a pole or not. I will work nominations from top to bottom and repeat.

We'll take nominations for about a week then vote.

Please:

You're allowed to recommend any graphic novel that's reasonably available.
It needs to be available in trade paperback and digital at cover price more or less.
Nominated books will be looked up Comixology for availability and rating.
If it is 17+ that is a M Rated comic and a no for this group.
No single issue comics.
No omnibus editions.
No manga.
No Porn.
Subject matter should be generally be in step with what the group is usually reading; or superhero-ish.

Stephen Brophy | 59 comments I second Sheriff of Babylon--it was just recommended to me the other day so it's already on my radar.

Nimona should be fine although I can't find it on Comixology. It says on the Amazon page that if you buy it for Kindle you get it on Comixology too so I don't know why I can't find it on the site, but it might be there. Also, it says grades 5 and up on Amazon so I'm just assuming it's teen rated.

Sheriff of Babylon is a 17+ rating so we can't do it. Sorry!

Phil Here is the Comixology link for Nimona: https://www.comixology.com/Nimona/dig...

Thanks!

Nimona is defaulting as our graphic novel for November 2016, since we didn't get any thing else nominated.

I will still take nominations for December but remember no 17+ rated books, please.

Will Robinson Jr. | 16 comments Battling Boy by Paul Pope and The Twilight Children by Gilbert Hernández are two possibilities for December.

Defaulting to Battling Boy for December because the other book is 17+.

Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season. ;-)
