Reply I love this one summer!!!!And currently reading honor girl Reply Soooo I haven't bought any comics or graphic novels in YEAARS but you have inspired me!! I'm definitely going to start with Lumberjanes!! Reply Have you heard of Truth: Red, White, and Black by Rick Morales and Kyle Baker? Or really anything Kyle Baker does? Truth is a great Marvel comic that uncovers the harsh, white-washed history of the truth serum that created Captain America. It is brutal and heartbreaking and one of the best works I've ever read. Reply Have you read any manga I really like this form of book and it's one of the only ways that I can read more contemporary books. I just finished volume 1 of Orange and it's a beautiful series involving time travel and a group of friends trying to help save a friend from commuting subside with the help of letters from their future selves. Reply Have you read Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge? I think you'd dig it. Just out of college protagonist, very Buffy-vibe, LGBT+ characters. Reply The Sandman ALWAYS! It's an older series (1989-1996), pretty long and divided into several arcs, but it is finished. It's more adult-oriented and literary sort of fantasy that takes place in the DC universe (cameos from guys like Martian Manhunter and John Constantine and places like Arkham Asylum) but you don't need to know the main DCU to enjoy The Sandman. Reply I read Nimona when it was still online as a webcomic and really loved it as well. I've also read the first volume of Lumberjanes and I'm looking forward to catching up, it's just so fun 🙂I read the first trade of Bitch Planet last year and liked it but I was really confused by the premise at first (I went in not really knowing anything and based on the title I really thought it was going to be about aliens for some reason) I'll probably get the second one whenever my library gets it.I'll probably pick up Giant Days soon because I really like slice of life type stuff 🙂 Reply Solid recommendations, Cece! Doing a nifty job as usual. Thanks. Reply The Shadow Hero by Gene Luen Yang is also amazing. Totally recommend it Reply I have read most of the Lumberjane series. I need to catch up. I'll be honest though when Noelle Stevenson left the series my enjoyment of it went down slightly. She has a new graphic novel series coming out soon (hopefully starting this year) called "4 Wizards" and it sounds really good. Reply I read Lumberjanes last month and loved it! I've only read the first volume but really want to continue with the series. Nimona has been on my TBR for ages! I just bought Giant Days after the guy at the store recommended it to me and I can't wait to get to it! Reply I am reading Fun Home for school and I really love it !!! Reply Love the Fun Home musical and i've been meaning to pick up the graphic novel for ages. Will have to do so, esp. since you enjoyed it so much! Reply I love Nimona so I'm ver y excited to pick up lumberjanes! I haven't read my graphic novels so this is a very helpful video! Have you read the saga series? Reply Giant Days lowkey reminds me of the Gorillaz esque art style which I adore so I'll have to check it out!!! Reply Oh man, this is my time to shine!

GeorgesSaga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples Sorry for the wall of text, but this is my favourite medium in literature so of course, I have a tonne that I want other people to read. Reply I've watched/listened to Abby Corrigan singing Changing My Major so many times!! UHH I LOVE IT! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8TWzSfcBBc Reply I'm gonna add so many of these to my TBR. I'm on a huge graphic novel kick lately 🙂 Oh and Buffy <3 <3 Reply I loved the first volume of Giant Days so much! I really need to continue on with the series. I've already bought up to volume 4 so I just need a good day to binge them! And I also really have to read the Avatar comics soon! I need to know what happened to Zuko's mom!
