Current Obsession: Graphic Novel/Comics Edition


In the last couple of months I have been OBSESSED with reading graphic novels and comics. Part of it is because all my fall TV shows are back on (and I am an AVID TV watcher), so reading graphic novels and comics are a way of maintaining my reading habits but not taking a whole month to finish a book. I am also a completionist and I have several comic series that I have started and not yet completed (not because I don't want to... just lack of time). So I thought it would be fun to share with you guys the comic series and graphic novels that I am DYING to read/finish in the next couple months!

I would also like to add a side note of sorts. I am new to the comic/graphic novel genre... I have really only been reading them for about two years. I do prefer graphic novels or comic series that are wrapped up in just a few trade paperbacks. I haven't been able to get into the long, complicated superhero stories from DC and Marvel (I just don't think I have the time to commit to those stories with my avid novel reading habit). I have read a couple of the short Batman runs though. With all that said, I would love some new recommendations. Please send your favorites my way in the comments section below!

To Complete
  • Preacher (bk. 3-5)
  • A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (vol. 2-3)
  • Deadly Class (vol. 2-6)
To Start
  • Gotham Academy
  • Gotham Central
  • Paper Girls
  • Seconds (graphic novel)
  • Boxers & Saints (graphic novels)

  1. I've been into them lately too, only for a year. I started rat queens, montress, and bombshells. I don't like the periodicals, I just prefer to wait until it's published as a full volume. I would also like to read something from marvel, I'm thinking about the new ms. Marvel.

    1. I really want to try Ms. MARVEL as well! I've heard pretty good things about Monstress so I might have to add that to my list.
