GRAPHIC NOVELS: Stories To Change Your Life

A Review By: The Times

The following review appear in The Times newspaper on 3 December 2005.

Paul Gravett’s Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life is not only the most definitive guide to the best work in the genre currently available but also the most exquisitely produced. There is an ever so slight whiff of the passnote about it somewhere, especially in the layout of the pages in the beginning and the section headings, but this is a very tiny quibble about an otherwise beautiful and knowledgeable book that manages to be a different type of critical history, one aflame with an incandescent passion. Its greatest success is the sheer infectiousness of its enthusiasm and love for the genre.
