I have been reading Zita the Spacegirl to my kids (7 & 5, boy and girl) very night. For those who haven't read it, it is a terrific graphic novel for kids full of adventure and strange creatures, with a great message. What else would you reccomend, as we approach the end of this great series? Specifically thinking of a modern, adventure-filled (but not overly mature) graphic novel or series. Science fiction or fantasy would be ideal.
I love The Walking Dead. Can anyone recommend similar (though not zombified) comics? [more inside]
PS240: Boom! Thwak! War and Comics. I teach in the political science department at a small liberal arts college, and I'm fortunate to have quite a bit of flexibility in new course design. For 2010-2011, I'm putting together a new course on war and comics/graphic novels. Awesome, right? I know. But what else goes on the syllabus? [more inside]

I saw a graphic novel in a store today - the sequel to an earlier work, about a female high school student's adolescence, and written by a woman. Any ideas on what it could have been? [more inside]

Has anyone done an epistolary comic book? It's not obvious to me how such a project could work and I'm interested in seeing what, if anything, artists have done with the form. I'm also interested in recommendations for good epistolary novels. I've already looked at the wikipedia page on epistolary novels and I plan to read some of the novels mentioned there.
I'm a snob. What graphic novels should I read? [more inside]
