  1. I also loved both of the Alex and Ada volumes currently out and would highly recommend – already pre-ordered the third. Another book that's really beautiful and different from anything else I have seen is 'The River by Alessandro Sanna'.

  2. Finally someone elsethat was underwhelmed by Wretched and Divine. I really thought I'd love it 🙁

  3. Hi Sanne
    Maybe you would enjoy Habibi by Craig Thompson? I noticed you've done a review of Blankets by him, and Habibi is just as good or even better 🙂 It's quite a different, slightly more complex story, but just as wonderfully drawn/told.

  4. Halfway Home by Christine Mari Inzer
    A sweet and fun read with lost in translation vibes. Deals with rediscovering ones roots, and a cool look at Japanese culture!

  5. I saw this thumbnail on my feed and literally squeeed ^-^
    My rec for a graphic novel is This One Summer by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki. It was a really nice afternoon read. Not my favorite graphic novel (that would be Blankets) but it was very enjoyable, nonetheless.

  6. Hello! Not sure if it is just me, but your accent sounds thicker than usual? Or maybe its just been toooooo long since I've watched a video. I have only just recently gotten interested in comics and graphic novels, so I am enjoying hearing reviews and look forward to more.

  7. I haven't read that many graphic novels/comics myself but of course I am going to recommend Watchmen by Alan Moore.
    But I also recommend Relish by Lucy Knisley; just finished this one last month and it is great! It's a graphic memoir celebrating food. Also I would recommend Batman: The Long Halloween if you like superheroes and mysteries.
    Also Maus by Art Spiegelman is great as well! I had to read this for a class; it is a graphic memoir about the author's parents and their survival through the Holocaust. I promise it is a great and emotional read and that it is not a clunky historical like the suffrage one in mentioned in this video.
    I plan to read Seconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley (author of Scott Pilgrim) if I get around to it this month.

  8. I just read Strong Female Protagonist recently. It's about a former teen superhero who decides to retire and unmask herself after most of the supervillains get caught because she thinks being a superheroine is pointless without any villains to fight, and so she goes off to go to college. It's really really good actually

  9. Great Video! I love art and stories so graphic novels combines my two favorite things! 😀 About The wicked + the divine, the story is a bit all over the place but what i really love about it are the characters 🙂 Also update for all the wicked lovers, they picked it up for a tv show! Next on my list has to be Sally Heathcote: Suffragette! Thank you for the recomandation 😀

  10. Hi, Sanne. 
    It would be great if you could one day do a whole video dedicated to Pride & Prejudice. Both the novel and the 2005 film adaptation. I love your videos, btw! xx

  11. I don't know why I haven't come across this book channel before….I'm just gonna go ahead and add you on everything…..

  12. I'd recommend "Rat Queens" from Image comics, it's about a really sassy group of women who fight monsters and stuff. The illustrations are great, and I really like the humor in it, I think you'd find it hilarious as well. 🙂

  13. I love the Wicked + the Divine, but I definitely see your point on large amount of jumping around.  The plot and back story don't really get defined until the issue 7 or 8; in may ways the Faust Act is just the exposition of the story.  I think it's one of those things you get used to when reading longer comic runs like this (it's supposed to be around 40 issues when it ends).  Anyway I'd recommend Bitch Planet by Kelly Sue DeConnick and (since you liked the art in WicDiv) Gillen and McKelvie's run of Young Avengers.

  14. I felt the same way about The Wicked + The Divine. I couldn't really get into it, it took me a week to finish it.

  15. Guy Delisle! For good graphic novel about travel in country we know little about the everyday-life, Guy Delisle, a French-Canadian, have some pretty good things! He tell his daily life in country we don't necessarily know a lot about when he follow his wife who work for Doctors without borders. Great drawing, informations about the situation of the country, anectode about his life there, funny: it's just so good! 

    Some of his biggest work: Jerusalem: Chronicles of the Holy city, Burma Chronicles and A user's guide to neglectful parenting, about his daily life with his kids.

    I don't know if it is for everyone, but you have to check this out 🙂 Enjoy!

  16. have you read Beauty by Hubert and Kerascoet? ir's a graphic novel i saw on Amazon and reading a bit of the reviewed pages i thought it was sorta like Cinderella, but idk. if you did read it i would really like to know what you think of it cause then i could buy it.

  17. Hi! This is late but have you ever read Celeste by I.N.J Culbard? I found it very enjoyable. Also I'm sorry you didn't like the wicked + the divine :c I love that comic. I feel the writing is a lot more fluid in the second collected volume though.

  18. Some recommendations: Portugal – Cyril Pedrosa; Essex county and The Underwater welder – Jeff Lemire; Paul has a summer job – Michel Rabagliati; Asterios Polyp – David Mazzucchelli; Habibi – Craig Thompson; Black hole – Charles Burnes: The Initiates – Etienne Davodeau.

  19. Watching your graphic novel reviews always calms my anxiety. Today was very rough, thank you for the work you do.

  20. The Wicked and The Divine is one of the best modern comic imo. I've read The Faust Act and Fandemonium, and I agree that at some parts it's a bit all over the place, but overall a great comic series. Things get a bit more f**ked up the more the story goes on, especially in the last issue in Fandemonium.
