Every week, iFanboy talks comics. This video show brings you the world of comic books through the eyes of iFanboy hosts Josh, Ron, and Conor. Whether you want to see what's going on at some of the biggest comic book conventions, or you're not sure what comics you should be reading, iFanboy covers a... Read More
Are you looking to spread some graphic novel love this holiday season? This year, iFanboy is here to help you with your shopping. There are all kinds of people out there, and Ron, Josh, and Conor are convinced that there's a comic book for every one of them.
If you want a graphic novel that has some gravitas, check out Joe Sacco's Safe Area Gorazde, chronicling the author's time in Bosnia. The guy who loves classic war comics is really going to love Will Eisner's Last Day in Vietnam. If it's all out action and conspiracy they're looking for, then The Losers is the book you're looking for.
But there are books with female characters as well! There's a feature film, but before the movie was Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel, Persepolis. Yet another book is Strange Girl. A romantic comedy in comic form is Shenanigans. A classic underground comic called Ghost World is good for anyone who liked the movie.
A nearly perfect gift for anyone who watched the Real World when it was still good has to be Pedro and Me.
Comics are for younger people too though! Young ladies might not be aware of Minx's The Plain Janes. A young (or old) fantasy fan will probably get a big kick out of both Mouse Guard and Bone. If you're trying to hook kids on reading superhero comics, you could do a lot worse than X-Men: First Class.
Now get out there, and show people how good comics can be!
