The first of its kind, this annotated guide describes and evaluates more than 400 works in English. Rothschild’s lively annotations discuss important features of each work-including the quality of the graphics, characterizations, dialogue, and the appropriate audience-and introduces mainstream readers to the variety and quality of graphic novels, helps them distinguish between classics and hackwork, and alerts experienced readers to material they may not have discovered. Designed for individuals who need information about graphic novels and for those interested in acquiring them, this book will especially appeal to librarians, booksellers, bookstore owners, educators working with teen and reluctant readers, as well as to readers interested in this genre.
