On my wish list: a new graphic novel series

So, I talk a lot here about what I’ve read – but not so much about what I want to read more of. And at the moment, I’m on the hunt for a new graphic novel series to get my teeth into. I have a really good local comic book shop and I’ve been having a nose through the shelves every time I go to pick up my regular orders, but so far, nothing has jumped out at me.

So what do I like to read? Well as you can see from the picture above, I love Lumberjanes and Fence, and I’ve ventured a bit into one off, longer titles. On the downstairs shelf, I’ve got the whole run of Paper Girls and a large collection of Rivers of London graphic novels. So ideally, I’m looking for something in a similar vein. Or maybe combining the two?! So teenage magicians that aren’t too gory?

I’m not a big super hero reader – mostly because I don’t really know where to start and the series seem intimidatingly long and complicated. Ive toyed with some of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics but again, I’m not quite sure where to start. I’ve also never really tried manga – mostly because I don’t know where to start! I do have the manga versions of the first three Parasol Protectorate novels, and as you can see I’m not averse to a graphic novel retelling of a story I’m already familiar with, so maybe that’s where I should be looking next!

Hit me up with your suggestions in the comments!

    1. I think i bought it for Him Indoors a few years back – I’ll have a dig around and see! If not, I’ll take a look next time I’m in the shop. Thank you so much.
