Graphic Novel Challenge 2009

So, one more can't be such a big difference now, can it? So I'll join the Graphic Novel Challenge for 2009 as well.

My definite list is:
1) Art Spiegelman: Maus 2
2) Marjane Satrapi: Persepolis 1
3) Rutu Modan: Exit Wounds

I will probably pick my other 3 graphic novels (I'm doing the minor version) from the following list:
1) Marjane Satrapi: Persepolis 2
2) Harvey Pekar: The Quitter
3) Adrian Tomine: Summer Blonde
4) Daniel Clowes: Ghost World
5) Will Eisner: A Contract With God
6) Alison Bechdel: Fun Home – A Family Tragicomic
7) Seth: It’s A Good Live, If You Don’t Weaken
8) Peter Kuper: Stop Forgetting To Remember
9) James Vance: Kings In Disguise
10) J.M. DeMatteis: Brooklyn Dreams
11) Bryan Talbot: Alice In Sunderland
12) Kyle Baker: Why I Hate Saturn
13) Andi Watson: Slow News Day
14) Joss Whedon & Georges Jeanty: Buffy


  1. You gotta read the Daniel Clowes and Adrian Tomine for sure, they are my favorites!

  2. I've felt the same way about signing up for challenges. It's like after 20, what's one more? :) Thanks for joining! Looking forward to your reviews.

  3. @ Alea: I'll try to get to them in that order - but who knows?

    @ Laza: This is sooo true! By now, I'm close to 40 challenges and the end of my signing up for more challenges isn't even close, I'm afraid... I'm addicted, where's the Challenge-holics Anonymous at?

  4. yeah...Buffy is no Graphic's a Collection of single issue comics...

  5. And you can't read Maus2 without reading Maus1, that's like reading Lord of the Rings 2 before you read the first one...
    I read almost all of them, but the most impressive definitely was Ghost World, great movie too!

  6. Anonymous, sweetie, did you ever consider that I might have read Maus 1 a looooong time ago? Because I have - right when it came out in Germany. I just never found Maus 2 as a separate book because the publisher changed the 2-book thing very fast into a 1-book issue and I didn't see the point in paying for a part I already have in perfect condition... :-)
