My 10 year old nephew’s birthday has come and gone and I still owe him a birthday present. Rather than add further to his collection of video games, I thought about a buying him a graphic novel but didn’t know where to start.
So I took to twitter. I got lots of good suggestions and was going to Storify them but I couldn’t work out an easy way to transfer the twitter conversation into Storify. Then, having transferred most of the tweets manually, I somehow lost the edit and didn’t have the will to start over. So here, with minimal attribution alas, are the titles that people suggested.
Asterix (topical, since there is a brand new book out this week)
Maus (by Art Spiegelman)
Luke Pearson’s Hilda books
Watchmen (I had my doubts about that one — a bit unrelentingly grim)
My thanks to all who responded. You may be able to see the conversation on twitter by following this link.
