Suggested by Vega:

Last Saturday (May 2nd) is Free Comic Book Day! In celebration of comics and graphic novels, some suggestions:

– Do you read graphic novels/comics? Why do/don’t you enjoy them?
– How would you describe the difference between “graphic novel” and “comic”? Is there a difference at all?
– Say you have a friend who’s never encountered graphic novels. Recommend some titles you consider landmark/”canonical”.


Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the commentsβ€”or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  16. No answer from me on the blog today — I know next to nothing about graphic novels. I haven’t read comic books in ages.

  17. love comic books, but got to admit not sure what the difference is between comic books and graphic novels—more text in the novels??

  18. I don’t read this genre. Happy BTT. πŸ™‚

  20. Graphic novels are great for escaping when you’re stuck at home with mom and dad.
