Summer reading recommendations

This year’s CBC’s Canada Reads program includes a few graphic novel and comic picks.

In this video, The Beguiling’s owner Peter Birkemoe showcases Seth’s new book, George Sprott. Just have a look at how those pages are put together. Amazing.

Browse Birkemoe’s full list of recommendations here. I’ve not read a single one on the list, which is very exciting for me – so many undiscovered books to check out.

Toronto comic writer Sean Jordan, aka Wordburglar, who pens Snakor’s Pizza chimes in with one of his favourites: Planetary

I love Planetary. It’s definitely in my top picks, but I’ve never been able to decide if it should go on the superhero list or the mixed genre list. The mixed list includes sci-fi stories, but this series features so many superhero characterstics I have difficulty classifying it. The series started in 1998 and went on hiatus in 2002 or 2003. Now it’s back with the final issue, due in October. The Wildstorm blog posts a coloured page from the upcoming issue. Very exciting after such a long wait.
