Superheroes are one of my favourite things, so naturally I am a big fan of comic books. Art style tends to be the first thing to draw me to a story, so here are some cute comics and graphic novels that I hope you’ll be drawn to as well.
Marvel is the love of my life, so what better place to start? The Unbelievable Gwenpool (US/UK) follows the story of Gwendolyn Poole, a comics fan flung into the world of her favourite characters. Think fourth wall breaks, fangirling, and complete chaos.
Anya’s Ghost (US/UK) is a coming of age story, with the addition of ghosts. Perfect for spooky season! It’s more the art style that’s cute than the plotline with this one- it’s not a particularly happy story.
Kusama: The Graphic Novel (US/UK) is a biography of one of my favourite artists, Yayoi Kusama. I hadn’t seen any graphic novel biographies before this, I think it’s a very interesting medium and I hope to see more of these.
Princess Princess Ever After (US/UK) is a heartwarming fairytale of kindness, bravery and adventure. The LGBT representation makes my heart happy. A card game version is due for release on October 1st.
Beetle & the Hollowbones (US/UK) is a paranormal fantasy story with very cute art. This book was recommended to me by a lovely person at Portal Bookshop, so please consider checking out their graphic novel section.
I hope you have fun reading these, maybe soon you’ll be as comic book obsessed as me!
Gabriel is a contributing writer from Yorkshire who loves everything creepy cute. You’ll usually find them crafting, and trying to keep yarn away from Kiki, their tortoiseshell cat. When they’re not creating super cute amigurumi, they’re probably trying to figure out how to dress as a kawaii vampire or dreaming about visiting Tokyo.
