8 Graphic Novels I Want To Read In 2018

August 9, 2018

I adore comics and graphic novels but it took me a while to get into them and decide what I liked. There's just so many and I found it so intimidating at first but I finally feel like I've got to grips with it and now I have a list as long as my arm of the ones I want to read! These are some I already own but desperately want to read this year.

Monstress

I've lost count of how many people have recommended this series to me and of how many awards this has been nominated for! Monstress speaks to my soul, its a steampunk horror. I repeat Steampunk Horror! With what look like anthropomorphic creatures... From what I gather the main character, Maika Halfwolf is a survivor in a world ravaged by war. She has scars, both literal and mental and a prosthetic limb. Say no more, I want to read this now.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Motor Crush

Being the only child of a petrol head I had little choice but to inherit my Dad's love of things with engines. This graphic novel is the perfectly blend of Bike and Book for me. It sounds absolutely amazing. Like Fast and Furious meets Rat Queens. I can see this being a firm favourite.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Unbeatable Squirrel Girl

Squirrel Girl. Need I say more? I think not...

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Zodiac Starforce

I get serious Sailor Moon vibes with this graphic novel and I am all here for it. I used to love the magical girl shows when I was little. Powerpuff girls, Winx Club all of those! Major throwback feels. If I'm remembering rightly I think theres also some LGBTQ rep in this series too! Very excited...

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Gotham Academy

I've been trying for ages to decide what to use to dip my toe into the DC universe because my god theres so much and I have no idea where to start (I have since had so many suggestions from my recently found Comic Oracle. Hi Dean.) I saw Jesse George (JessetheReader) loose his mind over this series and I loved how it looked. Books like Harry Potter, House of Night and the X-Men series I've always gravitated towards so anything with some kind of school always piques my interest.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Goldie Vance Volume One

Goldie Vance

Diverse Clueless. Yessss. Give it to me. Aside from the main character wanting to be a detective I know nothing about this series. Aside from the fact that Boom Box! are consistently producing some of my favourite series at the moment. Every one I've read from them I've adored.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

I've always been a massive fan of fairytales, be they Grimm, Disney or lately Angela Carter's versions. I've had Through the Woods sat on my shelves for ages and I have no clue why I haven't yet picked it up. I know it's exactly what I want, dark and creepy with the slight whimsy all fairytales have. From the brief flick through I've had I love the art style! It's so dark.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Pretty Deadly V1

I think, emphasis on think, this graphic novel follows Death's Daughter and her origin story. I get serious Saga vibes just from flicking through the artwork...and the content I think too! Looking forward to finding out what this is all about.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Those are the Graphic Novels I want to read in 2018.

Do you want to read any of these?

Or are there some others?

Thank-you for reading,

Katie x
