Hello all,
So it's Graphic Novels for September. Another area out of my usual comfort zone, but I have made some great discoveries over the years...

I have been meaning to read Ghost World by Daniel Clowes (being a fan of the film) for a loooong time now, so my decision has been made.

I'm always recommending Guy Delisle's books - especially for those who think graphic novels are just about superheroes. I particularly enjoyed Burma Chronicles and Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea.

What will you be reading?

You are roaring through them, Bill! I am still trying to finish my cult novel - it's not only long, but slow-reading....

Tank Girl isn't deep reading, Liz, easy to whip through. :)

I picked up my copy of 'Ghost World' from the library on Saturday afternoon and finished it that day. It was a good depiction of friends leaving school and growing apart, but if I'm honest, I preferred the film.
