For those that like literary graphic novels, this book of recommendations will have something for you. The author warns that this is a very subjective list, and it shows. While it does have some examples of comic books, and manga, these too lean towards the literary. Memoirs, and memoir-style titles seem to be a particular favourite of the author, and it should be noted that the majority of these entries are for teens or older. While there are examples of other genres, they are among the most well-known, so it is best to look elsewhere for recommendations. Concise summaries cut to the heart of each book or series, explaining what makes it worthy of the title "outstanding", and the author does do a good job of selecting from a range of classic to modern. A useful tool, but only for those seeking literary graphic novels.
