YA Graphic Novels Coming Out January-March 2019
Graphic novels are one of the fastest growing genres in libraries and bookstores and have become especially popular among teenage readers. There was once a stigma against graphic novels, with critics dismissing them as little more than glorified comic books. But these works can cover serious, intelligent topics. When cartoonist Art Spiegelman received a Pulitzer Prize in for Maus , his graphic memoir about the Holocaust, he brought critical attention to the form and helped elevate it to a respectable literary genre. Since then, more memoirists have chosen to chronicle their lives through graphic novels, sometimes combining their artwork with photos, journal entries, and other real-life mementos. The visual medium makes even the heaviest of topics a bit more accessible, and these memoirists frequently use dark humor to tell their stories.
