OK, OK, I give in. After a little gentle arm-twisting (it didn't take much really) from Andi, Iliana and Dewey, I've decided to join the Graphic Novels Challenge. By joining now, half-way through the year, the goal is to read 3 graphic novels by the end of December. I'm already planning to read Maus I and II for My Year of Reading Dangerously so that'll be one of my choices. For the others I might choose from these that I already have: 99 Ways to Tell a Story by Matt Madden, City of Glass by Paul Auster (adapted into graphic novel form by Paul Karasik & David Mazzucchelli), one of the Tintin stories I have, The Sandman: Endless Nights by Neil Gaiman, or finally reading some manga, or anything else that sounds interesting. I already have several in my wishlist that I've jotted down after reading the reviews from other bloggers so I should hopefully have no problem with choice.
I'm pretty new to the genre having only read Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi a few years ago, and a handful of comic strips when I was younger. (I do love Calvin and Hobbes!) So it'll be fun to read something that's different from my usual fare.
