Booking through Thursday
Today's discussion is the following --
Suggested by Vega:
Last Saturday (May 2nd) is Free Comic Book Day! In celebration of comics and graphic novels, some suggestions:
- Do you read graphic novels/comics? Why do/don’t you enjoy them?
- How would you describe the difference between “graphic novel” and “comic”? Is there a difference at all?
- Say you have a friend who’s never encountered graphic novels. Recommend some titles you consider landmark/”canonical”
My answer --
I don't read graphic novels, I have not seen much evidence of them over here in the U.K. The odd one I've spotted has been similar to stories in a women's magazines but perhaps a little longer. Although I'm not against the weekly/monthly publications I prefer a longer read with a book.
As a child I loved comics, 'Princess', 'Diana' and 'Bunty' , who can remember the' 4 Mary's' in the Bunty? Great fun!
My answer is very negetive, I'm afraid so therefore I wouldn't have any recommendations.
