Top 18 Best Graphic Novels: July 2016
Posted: May 1, 2016
Like the cover above, let me light the way and help you navigate through the teetering towers of comics being published these days. Take a look through my suggestions for upcoming new comics releases out this July and I hope you’ll find some gems to add to your Summer Must-Read List. Maybe like me you’ve been waiting for ages for someone to release all of those searingly powerful Alack Sinner stories into English and this IDW finally does with the first big volume of these New York noir masterpieces. Also out in translation are the almost-1000-page biography of Osamu Tezuka and some top-class bandes desinées.
Making their graphic novel debuts this month are Margaret Atwood no less, as well as Myriad winner Jade Sarson. Forced to pick one, let me recommend from Nobrow Press Geis: A Matter Of Life And Death, first in a trilogy by Alexis Deacon, former winner of The Observer / Cape / Comica Graphic Short Story Prize. Below is a sample page of his luscious artwork, without balloons - a few more sneak peeks are on his blog here… Never stop believing in wonder… Read my PG Tips here…
