Robert | 414 comments My favourite thing is Monsters is getting a lot of press. Can't wait to read it. I'm hoping that the inclusion of Sabrina will open the doors to more graphic novels in the future.

Excellent list! Loved My Favorite Thing is Monsters. (And Black Bolt. And all things Wakanda.) I have Kindred checked out of the library, that's next on my list.

It is cool about Sabrina, glad to see graphic novels getting more recognition.

I also adored My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, Vol. 1. Ferris is a gem. She seemed genuinely excited to trade artwork and publications with the unknown artists/authors at last year's Small Press Expo. Haven't read anything else on this list. Agree with oyou both--great news about Sabrina! Looking forward to reading it.

I didn't even know they were doing a graphic novel version of Kindred--if you remember, drop back in on this thread, Whitney, and let us know what you think once you're done.

I actually saw Kindred at the local bookstore - It looked good

I just finished Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation. It was excellent. I think it helped that it's been long enough since I read the book that I wasn't thinking about all the things that were left out and appreciated it in its own right.
