You can join in the fun HERE! "Last Saturday (May 2nd) is Free Comic Book Day! In celebration of comics and graphic novels, some suggestions:"
1) Do you read graphic novels/comics? Why do/don’t you enjoy them?
- Yes, I read comics.. long before they were known as graphic novels! LOL! I enjoy them because of the illustrations and fast-paced story lines =)
2) How would you describe the difference between “graphic novel” and “comic”? Is there a difference at all?
- No difference at all. "Graphic novel" is just a term coined by the Hollywood people to glorify comics -_-
3) Say you have a friend who’s never encountered graphic novels. Recommend some titles you consider landmark/”canonical”.
- I'd recommend "The Dark Night Returns" and "Watchmen" for starters. Hope that will get him hooked so I can recommend "heavier" titles ;-)
