Graphic Novels

Let's share our thoughts on graphic novels. I'm a big fan, but my tastes are quite specific, so I thought you guys might be able to suggest a few that I should try out.

As a teenager, I was particularly fond of Roman Dirge's Lenore, Serena Valentino's Gloomcookie, James O'Barr's The Crow and Daniel Clowes' Ghost World. I didn't rub along well with Serenity Rose, Jhonen Vasquez or any of the Voltaire books.

As an adult, I'm still really fond of Ghost World, but my tastes have veered away from the cutesy goth stuff. I'm working my way through The Walking Dead series at the moment (which is excellent for zombie fans), but I'm on book 9 of 10... I need to find something else to get stuck into whilst I wait for 11 to come out.

Recently, I picked up Rutu Modan's Exit Wounds and loved it - so understated, so emotional. I understand Marjane Satrapi's Persopolis is similar.

Frank Miller and Alan Moore don't interest me much, I'm not keen on fan-fic graphic novels (i.e. Buffy graphic novels) nor do I like superhero comics.
