Top Ten Comics I’ve Read So Far
Yes, it’s another Top Ten Tuesday here at Tiny Navajo Reads and today we’ll be discussing comics and graphic novels. I have read quite a few, but I’m still a novice when you compare me to my friends and coworkers. It’s because of them that I have read some of the ones that I’ll be putting on this list today, and I’ll be grateful to them for turning me to those particular volumes.
- White Sand, Vol. 1 by Brandon Sanderson
- Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
- The Complete Chi’s Sweet Home Vol. 1 by Konami Kanata
- Scooby Apocalypse, Vol. 1 by Keith Griffen
- Monstress, Vol. 1 by Marjorie Liu
- Fables, Vol. 1 by Bill Willingham
- Rat Queens, Vol. 1: Sass and Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe
- Marvel 1602 by Neil Gaiman
- Coyotes, Vol. 1 by Sean Lewis
- Taproot by Keezy Young
These comics and graphic novels have been some of my favorite. For all of those that state they are the first volume I have continued reading after them, I just wanted to make sure I had room to mention others. I have written reviews for all of these, but I’ll tell you why I enjoy these ones most so far here.
For White Sand, it’s a book that is written by one of my favorite fantasy authors. He creates such amazing worlds, and to be able to see one come fully to life, in my opinion, is one of the best things about this graphic novel. The story is no short thing either, but then I think Brandon Sanderson said it best when he said that when he first thought of this story, it came to him visually and this has been the best format for him to tell this story.
Chi’s Sweet Home is so adorable and fluffy and cute. It’s the everyday adventures of a kitten who gets separated from their mother and adopted by a young family who should not have a pet in their apartment. It’s just so stinkin’ adorable and I can’t recommend it enough. Even my husband loved it, for I read certain tidbits out of it and when I would stop he would ask what happened next. So Good!
Scooby Apocalypse is one of the best re-imaginings of the Scooby Doo TV show and I love it! The gang is not together when we first meet them all, but as they all gather together, you can see where their inspiration for this reincarnation comes from in the comics. It’s wonderfully dark but comedic as well.
Coyotes is so dark. Just…so dark, but so relevant. I truly think you need to read in order to know what I’m talking about and to experience it for yourself.
As for the rest, I do have my full reviews linked to all of the other comics I’ve placed on my list. Why don’t you go check them out and see what you think. Also, what comics are are in your top ten? Why are they there? Comment below and let me know!
