Reading Suggestions: Graphic Novels Part 1

Chester Brown's Louis Riel - Drawn & Quarterly ISBN: 1896597637

Clear writing and fine line cartooning in this story of Canadian
politics and the brutalities of colonialism

Darwyn Cooke and Richard Stark's Parker: The Hunter - IDW Publishing

Hard boiled fiction that takes no prisoners. Cooke's drawings are
produced without compromise and his ability to tell the story without
words is peerless

Mat Johnson and Warren Pleece's Incognegro - Vertigo

Passing for a whiteman in the deep South is filled with danger.
The investigative reporter at the heart of this story makes the
ultimate sacrifice to take on the Supremacists

Woodrow Phoenix's Rumble Strip - Myriad Editions ISBN: 9780954930998

If you get in your motor vehicle and drive it without remembering it's a
potential deadly weapon then you are part of the problem. Phoenix tells
it like it is and his graphic black and white images will haunt you long
after you put this novel down. Recommended for all drivers

I. N. J. Culbard and Ian Edginton's Dorian Gray and The Hound of the Baskervilles - SelfMadeHero

Victorian England is evoked in these stark and dynamic retellings of grand fiction. In foggy London town dastardly deeds are afoot
