Look in the K-6 and 7-12 Madison media centers -- the graphic novel sections are the place to look to find great stuff to read. At the junior-senior high, there are new Marvel comics (including Ms. Marvel), new Batman stories, and some sleeper favorites like Oddly Normal. Some K-6 titles are the super-popular Amulet series, more Marvel heroes and bad guys, and some books that feature some favorite mythical characters like Zeus, Hercules and Pandora. Our HS principal was spotted reading graphic novels, too! Give one a try and ask your student(s) why they like them so much.
