[Book Tag] The Graphic Novel Tag

The Graphic Novel Book Tag

The Graphic Novel Tag, created by Harriett Rosie, is one that I have been meaning to do for ages! I'm so glad I finally got around to it!

Let's dive in!


The Graphic Novel Book Tag

1. The first graphic novel you read:
Hmm. Unfortunately I can't remember the very first graphic novel that I ever read... but the graphic novel that I first read after using Goodreads was Avengers: Mythos written by Paul Jenkins, illustrated by Paolo Rivera

2. Your favorite graphic novel:
I have to say the Locke and Key series! Each volume is just so incredible; the storylines are captivating, there is a great dark and spooky tone, and the artwork is so lovely!

3. A graphic novel that disappointed you:
Runaways, Vol. 2: Teenage Wasteland written by Brian K. Vaughan, illustrated by Adrian Alphona. I didn't really love the first volume of this series, but I had high hopes that I would like the second volume more. Unfortunately that was not the case.. It wasn't horrible, it was just a miss for me. I think if I had read this when I was a teenager rather than a 26 year old, I would have liked it a lot more. 

4. A graphic novel you'd like to reread:
The Walking Dead series! I can't remember where I left off on my first read though, but now that I own all of them, I'm dying to give them all a read from start to finish!

5. A graphic novel you would recommend to everyone:
Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Adaptation by Tim Hamilton. This was such an awesome adaptation! 

6. A graphic novel with art you love:
Tooth and Claw written by Joshua Viola & Angie Hodapp, afterward by Carrie Vaughn. The artwork in this graphic novel is incredible! Each panel looks a bit like an oil paintings because the texture is very soft. The color palette is mainly natural colors with splashes of vibrance. I loved the way that the panels were broken up on the page in varying formats, and that each border of a panel wasn't clean cut. And boy, I am a total sucker for when the artist includes sound bubbles for noises that are incorporated into the panel!

7. A graphic novel you wish was a series/you wish was longer:
Definitely Rat Queens, before it took a bit of an odd turn of course... I've heard that they're revamping this series and I cannot wait to check it out!

8. A graphic novel that made you laugh:
Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy by Noelle Stevenson & others. This whole series is so funny! If you haven't checked it out yet, I highly recommend it!

9. A graphic novel that took you out of your comfort zone:
I accepted a a graphic novel as an honest review request. From the synopsis, I was immediately nervous. Unfortunately, this book just wasn't for me... It was Growing Up in the New World Order.

10. A graphic novel on your TBR or wish list:
Oh my gosh, I have so many!! Here are a few at the top of my list:
  • The Deadpool Dead Presidents Series
  • Afterlife With Archie
  • Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Series
  • Descender Series
  • Thornhill by Pam Smy
  • The October Faction
  • Mighty Jack Series by Ben Hatke and colorists Alex Campbell & Hilary Sycamore 

Thanks for reading!
