The Rough Guide to Graphic Novels 1 (Rough Guide Reference) Paperback – September 15, 2008
Of even more interest to me was: the included graphic novel! that comes with this book Fingeroth and Langridge did a little graphic novel about making graphic novels. What fascinates me is that the artist is a dude but the writer he finds to work with is a female! Why, it's as if Fingeroth respects the concept of women who can create-- indeed, WRITE-- comics and graphic novels! Golly, wotta concept. --Mangalife.com

In this tome, he tackles what a Graphic Novel is, the development of the comic book industry, and an exhaustive listing of classic illustrated fiction, resources, icons of the industry, and a small section on manga. He does a good job discussing, and providing information for the novice reader and long time reader. That is indeed a challenge.
I was pleased to note the inclusion of 911 by Jacobsen/Colon as one of the best 60 GN's. For such a controversial topic, it was very well done and an example of HOW TO write and illustrate effectively.
Keep these coming guys, educated readers are life time readers.
