Great Graphic Novels for Teens

I wanted to do a mini-round up of things related to the GGNT list.

Graphic Novel Reporter has a roundtable discussion explaining the history behind the list.

Over at Good Comics for Kids, a discussion of some of the titles that made it onto the list.

I was happy to see that the title I nominated, Ken Saito’s Name of the Flower, made it on to the final list. Librarians do use lists like these when making decisions about what books they should order for their library. So if you are a comics or manga fan and feel like advocating for one of your favorite titles and you think it has teen appeal, I encourage you to nominate it next year.
