My Year in Review 2011- Comics and Graphic Novels

A lot less graphic novels for me this year, but I was up in my nonfiction so I guess things balance out. Here, from my least favourite to favourite, is my recap of the graphic novels I read in 2011:

11. Liam O'Donnell and illustrated by Mike Deas- Wild Ride
10. Nicolas de Crécy, translated by Joe Johnson- Glacial Period
9. David Lester- The Listener
8. Ann Marie Fleming- The Magical Life of Long Tack Sam
7. Von Allan- the road to god knows...
6. Bryan O'Malley- Scott Pilgrim vs The World Vol. 2
5. Neil Gaiman, illustrated and adapted by P. Craig Russell- Coraline
4. Kevin Cannon- Far Arden
3. Josh Neufeld- A.D. New Orleans After The Deluge
2. Katsuhiro Otomo- Akira Volume 2
1. Bryan O'Malley- Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life Vol. 1

Still to come, fiction and short stories...

I've recently had a friend insist I start reading comic books/graphic novels. This is my goal for next year. I have your recommendations and he's written me a list as well!

While I back up your friend 100%, I think I'd check out my lists from both last year and the year before that for more essential reads.

Should I even be admitting that I have never read any Neil Gaiman books? I have much catching up to do.

Barbara: I like Neil Gaiman's work, but don't love it. I wouldn't feel bad for admitting it.
