Top Ten: Graphic Novels & Comics on My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. (JK, it was a freebie!)

I had originally planned to make a Five Favorite post about graphic novels… then realized I had read more comics than graphic novels… then thought I should do a FF on TBR graphic novels… and then had so many that I didn’t want to limit myself to just five! So, in no particular order, here are ten graphic novels and comics I am itching to read (hopefully in 2016!).


Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller // Bitch Planet, vol. 1: Extraordinary Machine by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro // Captain America: Winter Soldier, vol. 1 by Ed Brubaker // Filmish: A Graphic Journey Through Film by Edward Ross // Giant Days, vol. 1 by John Allison


Lady Killer by Joëlle Jones and Jamie S. Rich // Nimona by Noelle Stevenson // Rat Queens, vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe // Soppy: A Love Story by Philippa Rice //Trashed by Derf Backderf
