Babymouse: Queen of the World! I read this book over the course of about five months, like a coffee book, a few pages at a time, while eating breakfast and drinking my coffee each morning. When it was over with I had a long list of books added to my wishlist that will take me at least five years to get through.
Worth reading if you are a fan of comics and want to broaden your horizons a bit. Troppe scelte opinabili, troppo americanocentrico. Buono per degli spunti ovviamente. Feb 06, Matthew Noe rated it liked it. A dated, but still useful tool for collections. That said, I disagree vehemently with so many of the ratings I can't help but wonder Jun 25, Kurt rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , graphic-novels , bibliophile. When I might have been reading as a young child, I was watching movies instead. When I finally started reading in my teens, instead of literature aimed at my age group, including Comic Books of all stripes, I dove straight into literature with a capital "L".
In the past couple years though I have discovered the Graphic Novels or Comics that I did not read back in the day. This is a marvelously valuable reference sturdily bound for constant access and book marking--even wedging your foot between pages.

- BY MY SPIRIT;
Organized by genre, the best of the best is displayed page after page with each book's cover usually a half page tall and often there are brief samples of the work displayed as well. Each has a synopsis and review rating--for quality and age appropriateness. There are indexes to allow searches by titles, artists, writers and publishers. While these are nifty, they aren't perfect.
I did notice a few omissions while referencing back and forth. Another odd thing is that the reviews don't always seem to match the star rating given to a particular work. Don't know if these were done independent of each other but it occasionally seemed that way. Each genre subheading has a nice introduction but something I missed was a more comprehensive piece talking about the best graphic novels over all. I may be addicted to lists, but I would have liked a top ten of each genre and then one overall. Sometimes also it was not clear when the original publication date of the work was when they are rating a recent reprint or new collection of older works.
But these small quibbles aside, quite the invaluable reference book for someone who knew virtually nothing before I started reading it and I imagine it would hold more than a few surprises for even more hardcore readers. Jun 07, Jaq rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites. Don't know where to start or you're like me re introducing yourself to the wonderful, awesome universes that the graphic novel can take you to, then this is the book for you. I loved the way the graphic novels are grouped according to genre - making it easy to dip into the worlds of the superhero or the take a slide into the world at war.
This is a great reference material to for the librarian who wants to build a collection of graphic novels for their patrons. Well written, illustrated and inform Don't know where to start or you're like me re introducing yourself to the wonderful, awesome universes that the graphic novel can take you to, then this is the book for you. Well written, illustrated and informative to boot!
Sep 27, Smsu Library added it Shelves: art-music-speech-theatre , english. MAUS winning the Pulitzer , this would serve as a reference book for both collection development as well as general information on the works. It is also very useful for film, as many of these works have been adapted for the screen quite recently. This is an excellent source guide that I use quite a bit at the public library from my own collection and is written with with an academic audience in mind. Feb 06, mandy rated it liked it Shelves: graphic-novels. I found a lot of the categorizations to be a bit arbitrary.
Many of the books in each category could easily fit into at least one other category. Still a nice way to explore graphic novels and comics which I hadn't heard of before, and have added a lot more titles to my to-read shelf while browsing this book tonight. May 03, Jeffrey rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction , comic-books.
A very good way to be introduced to a broad swath of the best in graphic novels. It unfortunately but necessarily can only give the briefest of synopses to many of these works - but it does a great job of getting you interested in a lot of books you might not have come across or been interested in otherwise. Jun 28, Andy rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels , non-fiction , Great introduction for someone like me who's fairly new to graphic novels. I only wish Kannenberg had included next to the graphic novel pub.

It includes a number that I don't like, but also includes all of my favorites with just few exceptions notably Three Shadows. Anyway, it gives me some ideas of comics which I would like to read and it makes a great coffee table book. Jan 23, Mandy rated it really liked it Shelves: graphicnovels. A great resource for anyone who wants to devour or even just delve into graphic novels.
