Quick Post - Comic Novels

So, as I'm sure you can tell from my previous posts that my favorite genre is hands down mystery!  Well, I'm trying something new today, and I thought I would share the experience with all of you. 

I've never read a comic novel, and I don't really understand the draw.  To me it seems like some sort of picture book for grown ups...and I don't know that I am a fan.  A while back when Watchmen became famous I thought I would purchase the book and see what I thought.

Today I finished reading Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler (I will post my review on that later on), and I decided I wanted to change things up a bit.  I noticed Watchmen sitting on my shelf of books to read, and I thought, 'what the hey, I'll give it a try'.

I'm only about 20 pages in so far, but I really like it!  It's super interesting and it isn't hard to follow like I thought it would be.  I'm easily distracted, and thought that maybe with all the pictures and stuff I would have a hard time following along with the plot, but I think I am getting it!

What are your feelings on comic novels?  Have you tried to read one before?  How do you think it is different from reading a 'regular novel'?  Do you like it better?

I will keep you updated as I go through the book, and let you know what I think.

I just wanted to do a quick post to let you know what I was up to -- and also to get your input!

Happy Reading!

Graphic novles are a medium to tell a story. Like everything else, some are great (Kingdom Come, Sandman) some...not so much.

I'm actually working on a few reviews of my own for graphic novels.
