I have seen most of the non-starred ones here in the Manchester Council Library and I have read quite a few of them as well!

Personal favourites … Sin City and V for Vendetta!

hey dhar, what are these graphical novels ? sort of comic books or sci-fi fiction novels .. I saw that book “Eldest” at a bookstore .. and it was just like a bit fiction novel like LOTR .. am curious what really is a graphical novel .. could u explain .. just plain curious 🙂

though ur book collection and ability to read them as fast as u name them have always amazed me .. sometimes its just so much difficult to find time .. I end up buying books but find it difficult to read them .. 🙂
