Graphic Novels. Do you read them?

A friend of mine in the lit/publishing industry told me that graphic novels are all the rage right now. Have you ever read a graphic novel? If your favorite author had written your favorite book in graphic novel form rather than written word form, would you have read it?

I thought that Maximum Ride was just a novel. They have that as a graphic novel too?

I love graphic novels. Have dozens of them. I like the art and the stories are usually pretty cool.

Neil Gaiman. I read his as much as I can borrow them. (which, unfortunately, is not a lot anymore. I like his graphic novels. I'll probably buy some next time.)

And Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files have some graphic novels, and I've read them. smile Because... it's Harry Dresden. I love the series, so yeah.

I love graphic novels. Many of them have great artwork and the stories are interesting.

Some of my favourites are Superman: The Wedding Album, Dirty Pair: Sim Hell and the Star Wars: Legacy series.

Yes and yes! Graphic novels are great, especially during busy periods in ones life when you don't really have much time to just relax and read a regular novel in a timely manner; but with a graphic novel you can just read in only about a sitting or two and still get your reading fix with a great story plus an added addition of some amazing art.

I like some graphic novels. I don't really get into fantasy so that limits most of them. However, I did just read "Nightly News" which was awesome.
