Graphic Novel November comes to an end.
Posted November 30, 2010on:
I can’t believe it’s the end of November!! When did that happen?
It happened sometime after we talked about over 20 graphic novel and manga series here on the Little Red. twenty series? more than 25 posts? Personally, I think that’s pretty cool. And it sure blew up the words “manga” and “graphic novel” in my word cloud. I wonder how long it’ll take everything else to catch up.
Does that mean this is the end of graphic novels and manga here on Little Red? Hell to the no! Thanks to discussing graphic novels with other bloggers, I’ve got copies of Maus II, Blankets, Persepolis and a bucket of other goodies screaming READ ME!! And they will be read! I’ve got more Phil Foglio and Ai Yazawa to publicly drool over! I’m just not going to torture you with it every day. Links to discussions of graphic novels, comics, manga, and all things visual will always be able to be found under the Manga/Graphic Novels tab at the top of the page.
As much as I love graphic novels and all their iterations . . . I am very excited to back to the business of novels. scifi, fantasy, steampunk, weird stuff, speculative stuff, more weird stuff. You know, the good stuff. Reading a quicky graphic novel nearly every day in November actually freed me up to read more speculative fiction, so I’ve got some treats lined up for you! In the next week or so you can look forward to reviews of novels by Lavie Tidhar, Joe Abercrombie, George R R Martin, Mary Doria Russell, Ursula K LeGuin and more.
December is gonna be an awesome month.
How about you?
What did you think of Graphic Novel November? success? epic fail? somewhere in the middle?
What reading goodies have you got on deck for December?
