2011 Graphic Novels Challenge

Hey guys! It's Vasilly and I'm the newest host for the the Graphic Novels Challenge. I want to thank Nymeth and Chris for keeping this challenge going strong for the rest of us in 2010. This was one of the challenges that Dewey started and I'm happy to see that it's still going on years later.

So the rules are basically still the same:
  1. The challenge starts January 1, 2011 and ends December 31, 2011. You can start anytime you want to especially if you want to start early.
  2. The level of participation: Beginner (3 comics or graphic novels),Intermediate (3-10 books), or Expert (10+)
  3. Overlaps with other challenges is definitely okay
  4. Re-reads count
  5. Feel free to post your list at any time

One of the things that will change is mini-challenges. I don't think I'm going to have them this year but I will host a monthly spotlight on one book or author every month. I'm also hoping to feature a guest post every month along with monthly prizes. So sign up!


I am so excited to join the 2011 Graphic Novels Challenge this year!  I have been wanting to pick up more and more graphic novels these days and I am going to use it this year to explore and give myself a break from some upcoming chunksters that are on my reading plan.  

I am going to go with the Intermediate Level (3-10 books) and will list them as I read them.  I also plan to review them as I can and will link them up when available.

  3. Tif, I see that you and I read some of the same books this year. I thought Anya's Ghost was a great creepy read. Which one was your favorite?

  4. Vasilly ... I think my favorite was Fables! In fact, I actually included the first one in my favorite reads of 2011! I cannot wait to read more in that series!
