Graphic Novels Challenge 2010



Apologies for the double post today - this is just a brief note to let you know that my friend Chris and I are hosting the Graphic Novels Challenge in 2010, and that the sign-up post is now up. Laza, this year's host, was kind enough to let us use the same challenge blog, so that's where we're doing the sign-ups and will be posting most challenge-related stuff in the future. Click over for all the info you need, and also for a chance to help us with a question we've been debating.

We've made the challenge really easy - the Beginners level only requires you to read 3 comics/graphic novels in 2010. That's nothing! You could finish it in one afternoon! Come on - you know you want to join.

  9. Yeah I've been whining for awhile. I was actually getting a little worried that it wasn't going to happen, and I would feel obligated to do it. I have my list, and I'm going to add it to my third challenge post for next weekend!

  15. This will be a fun one, I look forward to it! Probably just the excuse I need to re-read Bone, as well as dive in to my large stack of graphic novels that I have yet to read!

    Care and Vivienne, we're preparing a mega list of reading suggestions to be posted before the end of the year...more on that soon! :D

  18. Hmmm...I'd be in dire need of that suggestions list, though I have sworn to read Persepolis. Count me interested. It's always good to expand the horizons...You are wonderful for hosting, regardless!

  19. I'm trying to resist challenges in the new year, but oooooo only three books!? I definitely want to read that many in the new year anyway, so.... hmmm....

  20. Oh temptation! I am really trying to stay away from too many challenges in the new year but I love graphic novels so I think I may have to join you guys in this one. I'll be posting about it soon.
