This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is all bout graphic novels!
I admit, I haven’t read as many of them as I’d like and I liked the ones I’ve read a bit too little or a bit too much sometimes [yes, for the ones who haven’t noticed I’m rephrasing LoTR quote]. I did some last moment reading this week to have some actual choice in the graphic novels I’ve read. I do actually have some of them, mostly from a humble bundle, and I was waiting for a good moment to read them, but that actually means sitting at home in front of my PC and reading… There are so many things you can do on PC… So here’s my choice:
The Mocking Dead by Fred Van Lente and Max Dunbar
Yup, a zombie apocalypse story. It’s creepy and funny in some places. I had a good time reading it. And the ending… damn I wanted to kick the author. I really need to get the second part…
Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things by Ted Naifeh
That one is fun! A young girl moves with her parents to an old house that belongs to her great uncle Aloysius. Both house and her uncle seem to have lots of secrets… and strange creatures.
The story has kind of Coraline feel to it, spooky, yet fit for children.
The Guild by Felicia Day, Jim Rugg and Dan Jackson
Ah, the Guild… Has any of you watched this show? Well, go on! But you can also read through it. It’s fun both ways :).
George R.R. Martin’s Wild Cards: The Hard Call by Daniel Abraham, Eric Battle and George R.R. Martin
That one completely surprised me. I know Martin wrote many books except the famous Song of ice and fire series, but this was great! Just check it out 🙂
Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples.
Loved by so many Saga. I completely understand why now. This was one of my last minute reads. I’ve got the 3-volume set and I’m 2/3 done right now. It’s a good story with some nice action, magic, various s-f worlds and aliens and love :). Yup, I loved it.
