Saturday May 2nd was Free Comic Book Day! In celebration of comics and graphic novels:
  Do you read graphic novels/comics? Why do/don't you enjoy them?

I have read a couple graphic novels...

As the World Burns: 50 Simple Things You Can Do To Stay In Denial by Derrick Jensen and art by Stephanie McMillan. I loved this book because it's Derrick Jensen. But it was also my introduction to Stephanie McMillan, and I now follow her comic, Minimum Security

Three Shadows by Cyril Pedrosa. I very much enjoyed the art work in this book... but the story itself was too simple for my taste. And I am definitely not going to pursue any other graphic novels, based on this one.

There was also a Firefly/Serenity book that I read at some point, but I can't find it or remember the title or anything. *rolls eyes at self*

Anyway. I wouldn't mind reading graphic novels. They are a lot quicker to read than text novels! :) But I don't really know where to start. And I've got a decent "to be read" pile already. So I'm probably not going to worry about it, unless a few free graphic novels drop out of the sky and land a few feet away. (Yes, the library is more than a few feet away!) ;)
