Great Graphic Novels

15 02 2008

I don’t always mention graphic novels on TeenSpace, and I’m not exactly sure why. I read them. I love them. I think they’re awesome. And so, apparently, do a lot of other people. The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) compiles a list every year of Great Graphic Novels for Teens. Here are some of the titles that we own from the 2008 list:Laika
