This is a new meme hosted by Sugar & Snark. It came about when Sugar was wondering which cover to use for her #70 Cover of the Week post. She kept on thinking of more than one, and they all seemed to have a theme/characteristic. So she decided to switch things up a bit!
Each week I (along with the S&S ladies) will post a characteristic and choose 5 of my favorite covers with that characteristic. I would love for you to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic so hop on down to the comments and tell me what you think.
Today’s Cover Characteristic – Graphic Novels
(Normally I would link all of the covers into 1 image and be done with it, but I LOVE graphic novels and to not allow you to blow them up and view them in all of their glory seemed mean. So.. to appreciate them the way they deserve..CLICK TO ENLARGE!!)
And The Winner Is…
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
By: Denise Mina / Illustrated by Andrea Mutti & Leonardo Manco
I love this graphic novel (all of them…not just vol.1) for it’s rawness. The artwork is unlike anything I have ever seen and takes my breath away each time I see it. Just to give you an idea of how much I love this cover. I went to 5 different comic book stores last year on Free Comic Day just to find it. FIVE! I had to have it. I was like a mad woman. I LOVE IT!!! And in case you were wondering. Yes…I own a copy of each graphic novel I listed today.
