Favorite Graphic Novels of 2017

Largehearted Boy's Favorite Graphic Novels of 2017


Every year, comics seem to become more entertaining and diverse.

These are the poetry collections I have most recommended to friends, family, and anyone else who has crossed my path this year (my personal metric for "favorite"), listed alphabetically by title.

What was your favorite graphic novel of 2017? Let me know on Twitter or Facebook.


The Best We Could Do

The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui

Thi Bui's The Best We Could Do is a profound and beautifully illustrated memoir of the Vietnamese refugee experience.


Boundless

Boundless by Jillian Tamaki

Jillian Tamaki's Boundless includes a remarkably varied collection of stories.


Everything is Flammable

Everything is Flammable by Gabrielle Bell

Bell deftly explores friendship and humanity in this poignant memoir.


Imagine Wanting Only This

Imagine Wanting Only This by Kristen Radtke

Kristen Radtke's graphic memoir Imagine Wanting Only This is one of the most moving and thoughtful comics I have read in years.


My Favorite Thing Is Monsters

My Favorite Thing Is Monsters by Emil Ferris

Hands down the most thought-provoking and moving graphic novel I have read all year, My Favorite Thing Is Monsters is a truly remarkable book and one of the year's finest (regardless of genre).


Spinning

Spinning by Tillie Walden

Tillie Walden's Spinning is an elegantly told coming-of-age story that will appeal to both adults and children.
