Graphic Novel Haul: Autumn 2012

The past three months have been very good to me in terms of inexpensive graphic novel finds. Half of this haul hails from my favorite used bookstore. The other half comes from a local bargain outlet store, where the books were as low as two for $1, and none of the books I purchased were over $3. Can you blame me for losing control of myself? The answer is no, no you cannot.



Here they are all stacked up. Um, I didn’t realize how many I bought until seeing them amassed like this. I just contemplated taking a pledge to myself not to buy anymore graphic novels until all of these are read, but that’s a promise we all know I can’t keep.

Back to the books. Let me break it down for you:




  • Raina Telgemeier’s Drama
  • Miss Lasko-Gross’ A Mess of Everything
  • Martin Rowson’s The Wasteland
  • Marjane Satrapi’s Chicken with Plums
  • Richard Sala’s Peculia
  • Matt Groening’s Futurama Adventures



  • Adam Sexton’s Shakespeare’s Macbeth: The Manga Edition
  • Richard Appignanesi’s Manga Shakespeare: The Tempest
  • Jordan Mechner’s Prince of Persia
  • John Matthews’ The Chronicles of Arthur: Sword of Fire and Ice
  • William Shakespeare’s Macbeth (the ISBN on this gn is linked to the original work. Why? I don’t know.)
  • Darren G. Davis’ Ray Harryhausen Presents: Wrath of the Titans
  • Chuck Dixon’s Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein, Volume 1: Prodigal Son




  • Sergio Aragones’ Louder Than Words
  • Aline Kominsky Crumb’s Need More Love
  • Steve Niles’ Daughters of Fly in my Eye
  • Michael Barson’s Agonizing Love: The Golden Era of Romance Comics




  • Rex Michael’s Fangbone! Third-Grade Barbarian
  • Rex Michael’s The Egg of Misery: Fangbone, Third Grade Barbarian
  • Stefan Petrucha’s Nancy Drew #15-21

The beauty of graphic novels is that they take a few hours to read tops, so it really won’t take me long to get through this glorious mountain of sequential art. ...Fine, yes, that's what I tell myself to allay the bookhoarder guilt. What of it?
