A diverse range of in-print graphic novels is represented. 26 April 2006
By D. Donovan, Editor/Sr. Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you're a graphic novel fan you'll want to keep up with the best using THE 101 BEST GRAPHIC NOVELS as your guide. Here's a concise, updated reference to the best which includes such extensive revision that over half the listings are new - and reflect the best in manga art, too. A diverse range of in-print graphic novel styles is represented, a new section includes books about comics, and the result is a top selection including summaries of offerings and background detail.

Not what I expected 2 Dec. 2006
By Beverly Seaton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought this would be a list of adult grahic novels, like those of Harvey Pekar. A few were, but many were for children or comic book collectors. I do not think some of them really qualify as graphic novels. From the term "your library" I understood my own personal library, but seems it is for public librarians serving a mixed public. Fine, but I did not see that in the editorial description.

Great resource for teachers 30 Sept. 2007
By Florence M. Cross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received the book and it is just what I wanted....a great resource. I teach Language Arts in Junior High and I wanted a list of graphic novels to guide me in my purchases as to suitability and content. It has certainly provided direction.

would strongly recommend this for any reader, teacher, librarian, teacher educator, or parent with an interest in comics 15 April 2007
By Christopher Shamburg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an educator trying to get a handle on graphic novels and comics in literacy education, this was an excellent starting point (along with Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art). The selections, descriptions, and rating were helpful and accurate. It's been an excellent guide.

The entries are listed alphabetical by author, and I only wish that there were alternate indexes (by ratings or subject). However, it did force me to expand my initial interests...not a stress for a brief book.

I would strongly recommend this for any reader, teacher, librarian, teacher educator, or parent with an interest in comics or graphic novels--it can introduce you to a variety of titles or expand your existing readings.

Childhood Dreams 22 July 2007
By James Lansing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The main problem with this book is the list itself. There are far too many books aimed at children and teens, and not enough for the mature reader. The author seems to have stopped reading the latest books, and is trapped by the classic, easy insertions. How can you leave out "Road to Perdition" and "A History of Violence" ? Sure, Spiderman and Superman are fine, but both of these are more comic book and less graphic novel. The term Graphic Novel has moved beyond the superhero stage.
