Graphic Novels: Breaking Out Past the Big Two

Graphic Novels: Breaking Out Past the Big Two

Created by Quinn - Updated on December 17th 2020

I am a lover of graphic novels, but I remember being deeply intimidated when starting out. After all, some of these characters have more than 75 years of history at this point. Do I start at the beginning? With a particular writer? I found it to be a bit too daunting to be honest, which kept me away from them for a while. But, then I discovered the vast, beautiful world of independent graphic novels. Rich stories with gorgeous art and a finite plot line (in most cases). I was smitten. I burned through everything I could get my hands on, and the rest is history. Here, I've included some of my all-time favorite stories. They're either standalone stories or the first volume in a series so there's no question of where to start!
