Other than a few Neil Gaiman comics I read in high school, I don’t often read graphic novels. But I’ve heard of two recently that intrigue me, and both are by Toronto writers. The first is This One Summer by illustrator Jillian Tamaki (whose work I adore) and her cousin, writer Mariko Tamaki. It’s about two girls on the cusp of becoming teenagers, during one summer at their families’ beach houses. Sounds like the perfect summer read.
The second graphic novel that interests me is Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley (you know, the guy who made Scott Pilgrim). Apparently it has a strong female lead (which you know I love).
Have you read any graphic novels that you really enjoyed?
