2015 - 8th Annual Graphic Novel/Manga Reading Challenge

The 8th Annual Graphic Novels Challenge is hosted by Nicole on its own blog!  Click the button to go to the site, get all the details and to sign up!

From the blog:

What counts:  graphic novels, collected trade editions, manga, comic strip collections, comic books. In print or digital. Anything else you feel is suitable.  My criteria is if it has either frames OR speech bubbles it counts.  I'm not going to be the comic police but if you are unsure, ask me in the comments any given month.


Here are the levels:

Modern Age: read and review 12 books during the year

Bronze Age: read and review 24 books during the year

Silver Age: read and review 52 books during the year

I usually start at the lowest level (due to signing up for a LOT of challenges), which in this case would be 12 books.  This will be some new territory for me, as I have not read graphic novels or comic books in a long time.  Probably the last time was when WhiteWolf introduced Vampire:  The Masquerade.  That, and possibly one or two of "The Walking Dead" graphic novels.

I'm sure I can get all the material I need from my sons. ;)


  1. I'm sure your sons have a lot of graphic novels you can borrow. I don't read many anymore, but I could probably handle twelve comic books.

    1. And there's a new comic store in town, Alex. The boys will probably be shocked when I suggest we go there! *lol*

  2. Welcome the GN/Manga Challenge LuAnn! Hope you have lots of fun with us!

    1. I'm looking forward to it, Nicola! I'm counting hours and minutes until I can start (that's 8 hours and 7 minutes till the New Year)! *LOL*
