Do you want to read Moby Dick in one evening? Want to read Jane Austen but just haven’t gotten around to it? Your options have broadened for these great classics.
Our adult graphic novels section has options such as Moby Dick by Herman Melville, Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, or Ulysses by James Joyce. If you love Stephen King but just don’t always have the time for his full length novels, pick up one of his Dark Tower graphic novels and read that story in a quick read format.
This new and developing genre of fiction is widening its horizons to the titles listed above and even more classic titles. Stephen King, Patricia Briggs, Janet Evanovich and Kim Harrison are just a few examples of current bestsellers who are now putting some of their stories in graphic novel format. These books are fun, give you the nuts and bolts of the stories, and the artwork is exquisite. And the best part? You can talk about the stories with your friends and look well-read without having to put in massive amounts of reading time. But shhh, it will be our little secret.
