I reacently got interested in graphic novels but, quite onestly, I don't know where to start. Can you suggest me some good graphic novels? I'm almost 15 and I like sci-fi, fantasy and basically anything else. Will you give me a hand Please?

Y: The Last Man is a really good series. I would check that out. Watchmen is also a classic.

Have you already read Sandman? If not, I would reccomend that. Or you can start elsewhere and lead up to Sandman so you can see how a lot of stuff pales in comparison. Everyone always raves that Watchmen is the pinnacle of graphic novels, but I think Sandman is miles ahead. Watchmen is great, sure, but reading Sandman has become an almost spiritual experience for me, there's really nothing else like it.

Yeah, Sandman is one of the best things I've ever read, graphic novel or not, but just to warn you, it's very mature, and not in terms of sex, violence, and language. Stephen King says in the forward to book 8 that "if you're not old enough to chew this stuff for yourself, maybe you'd better go back to Spider-Man and the X-Men a little longer. Otherwise you're going to be puzzled." I'm just saying this because you're very young, but you might just love it. Take a peek at some of the books before you decide to buy them and see if you like it.

I would recommend "Asterios Polyp" It really shows how much the art of a graphic novel can tell the story as much as the words.

Asterios Polyp
