The Greatest Graphic Novels I've Never Read

Hi, everyone. Australia is burning, and we’re on the brink of World War III, so, whatever, let’s just list the most influential graphic novels I’ve never read. Yes, I’m ashamed. Hell, I even own some of these. As much as I love comics, these are 20 of the most amazing (as the evidence suggests) graphic novels out there I just haven’t gotten around to yet, but I will, dammit, if the country doesn’t collapse!

  • Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
  • This One Summer by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki
  • Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction and Chip Zsdarsky
  • A Contract with God and Other Testaments by Will Eisner
  • American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang
  • All-Star Superman by Grant Morrison and Frank Quietly
  • Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel
  • Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson
  • March by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell
  • Hip Hop Family Tree by Ed Piskor
  • El Deafo by Cece Bell
  • The New Mutants (Marvel Graphic Novel #4) by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod
  • Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
  • The Authority by Warren Ellis
  • 100 Bullets by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso
  • Astro City by Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson
  • Saga of the Swamp Thing by Alan Moore
  • Black Hole by Charles Burns
  • Runaways by Brian K. Vaughan by Adrian Alphona
  • Almost all of Sandman by Neil Gaiman. Seriously, I’ve only read the first volume of the trade paperbacks, which, I hear, isn’t even remotely the good stuff.

Anyway, thanks, sorry. I deserve your hate and your rotten vegetables
