What trade should we read together for our September Comic Book of the Month? Nominate your pick here!

This month's theme is "non-fiction or memoir genre".

Titles nominated this month must in the non-fiction or memoir genre. If you have any questions or concerns, please send a message to mod Kate, who is happy to help. You can find the complete 2018 theme calendar here.

Remember:
- Nominated titles must be TPB comics or original graphic novels.
- Only the first volume of a series may be nominated, unless the group has already read the previous volume(s) as a book of the month. To see what we've read, check out our group's bookshelf.
- Nominated titles cannot have the same writer as the previous month's BotM winner. This month, that's Marguerite Bennett.
- Nominated titles must fit the month's theme. To see past and upcoming themes, check out the 2018 theme calendar.
- Only one nomination per person.
- You can "second" a nomination in place of nominating a different book, but this will count as your nomination for the month. Seconded books will receive an additional chance of being selected in the randomization process.
- If a title you nominate wins BotM, please refrain from nominating another title for one month to give others a chance.

Nomination & Voting Schedule:
To better accommodate our increasing number of members, the nomination and voting schedule is as follows every month:

16th: Nomination forum opens
23rd: Nomination forum closes; 5 nominations are selected at random; Voting opens
30th: Voting closes

More details on our updated nomination and voting procedures can be found here.

Chris Gordon I think Maus by Art Spiegelman is nonfiction, or possibly fiction inspired by true events. If someone can corroborate that it is nonfiction, I'd nominate that.

It does need to have an English translation, unfortunately. Is there something else you'd like to nominate?


message 11: by Axel (new)

Axel | 15 comments I do have one comic book on "life in publishing": https://www.frankmadsen.dk/2016/04/19...

This one is definitely crossing the line.
