I haven’t ever done a tag, so let me know id I totally screwed this up 🙂

1). What’s your favorite genre?
I am a Graphic Novel Fan

I also unabashedly love Science Fiction and Fantasy. If I can get a Science Fiction Graphic Novel… ohhh nelly.

2). Who’s your favorite author from the genre?
Brian K. Vaughan or Neil Gaimon. Does anyone else say Neil Fucking Gaimon? Or is it just me. Their books are rich and lovely and build the most surreal pictures in my head and on the pages.

3). What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?
It is a mixture of beautiful art and great storytelling.

4). What’s the book that started your love for your favorite genre?

That is a hard question. I can tell you my favorite book most recently is a book called Daytripper by Fábio Moon, Gabriel Bá, Craig Thompson (Introduction), Dave Stewart (Colours), Sean Konot (Lettering)

The Premise is, “What are the most important days of your life?

Meet Brás de Oliva Domingos. The miracle child of a world-famous Brazilian writer, Brás spends his days penning other people’s obituaries and his nights dreaming of becoming a successful author himself—writing the end of other people’s stories, while his own has barely begun.

But on the day that life begins, would he even notice? Does it start at 21 when he meets the girl of his dreams? Or at 11, when he has his first kiss? Is it later in his life when his first son is born? Or earlier when he might have found his voice as a writer?

Each day in Brás’s life is like a page from a book. Each one reveals the people and things who have made him who he is: his mother and father, his child and his best friend, his first love and the love of his life. And like all great stories, each day has a twist he’ll never see coming…

In Daytripper, the Eisner Award-winning twin brothers Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá tell a magical, mysterious and moving story about life itself—a hauntingly lyrical journey that uses the quiet moments to ask the big questions.”

I haven’t read anything this beautiful and profound in a long time. 

5). If you had to recommend at least one book from your favorite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?

I think the Locke and Key series is a very good place to start. It has everything that you need. Fun story and beautiful graphics. 

6). Why do you read?
I breathe therefore I read. Reading is my happy place and my sad place. It is the place of excitement and education. The act of reading is such a part of me that I have to do it. It is who I am. I am a reader.
I tag:

And anyone else that wants to give this a go?

  1. This is great. My children love reading comics – it’s reading, so it counts in my eyes! At the last Comic Con that we went to I found a comic titled “I hate Fairyland.” The cover looked a little graphic but I thought that my 9 year old daughter might get a giggle out of it. Glad I read it before giving the comic to my daughter. Funny? Very much so. Appropriate for children? Definitely not!
