In 500 Essential Graphic Novels the finest paperbacks, collections and hardcovers from around the world are gathered together for the first time in a volume that reveals the sheer diversity and rich talent that abounds in this visually thrilling medium. The crème de la crème of contemporary graphic novels are listed with a plot breakdown, the creators, publisher, date of first collected release, ISBN and, of course, a review. Every review is star rated and also employs a simple age rating so that parents can see what is suitable for their children, whatever their age. The reviews are also cross-referenced, so that a title like Gen, a biographical war story, has its main entry in the War chapter, but also a link in the Biography section. 500 Essential Graphic Novels also contains a Foreword by distinguished graphic novelist Garth Ennis, co-creator of the forthcoming HBO TV series Preacher. It is an indispensable reference book for any comic fan, graphic novel novice, library or school.
