I would only ever get into Graphic Novels if the art was really nice. I refuse to live in a fantasy land of poorly drawn people and horrible design.

I only read one graphic novel, and that was Stormchaser - the graphic novel.

The only one I've read is The Walking Dead.

Also, shit, I hate the term "graphic novel." It sounds so much better to call them comics, even if it's not technically correct.

Dragon Ball Z.

Nah, I actually haven't read. Out of the very few that I own, I'll say Hellsing. It's not your average animu.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

Darker Than Black - Shikkoku no Hana

Seriously. Anyone who watched Darker than Black and wasn't satisfied with the ending of the second series, read this shit.

I thought V for Vendetta was one of the greatest thing I ever read.

Just forget about the whole anon movement after that. Ruins it.

Graphic Novel is the term they use when they want to pretend they arent comics.

Well manga, comic and graphic novel do all mean the same thing really except for minor differences.

Hentai is just hentai and its always lewd.

james kolchaka's "American elf" is an amazing graphic novel, since the artist chroniclizes his life through daily comic strips

I've got the first four volumes of The Walking Dead and it's pretty great. Wish I had more of them actually. It's the only recommendation I can give since it's the only graphic novel I can recall reading.

Aren't graphic novels comics which have more than 100 and a lot more story/plot?

If Bill Watterson's Calvin & Hobbes never equated to "graphic novel" status, then I'm going with Jhonen Vasquez's work.

Squee first, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac second.

Moore's Swamp Thing run. Volume 2, if I have to choose one of the 6 books. The one where he storms hell to rescue Abby.
