Congressman John Lewis (D-Ga.) was at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday discussing his award-winning graphic novel, March, which resulted in a real march for civil rights awareness.
Uncomfortably Happily is the rare graphic novel that remains still for long periods of time. That’s not to say the comic is ever boring, only that it makes the most of its quiet and relies on strongly developed and clearly motivated characters, rather than complicated plot, to tell its story.
Comic book creators who like the rain and steampunk might have just found their dream job. The city of Seattle is holding a contest for an artist (or team of artists) to make a graphic novel about a historic steam plant. Cha-ching!
Game of Thrones has generally kept true to the original book series, but there are ways the show has strongly deviated from the source material (including most things after season five).

Three years ago, Representative John Lewis published the first book in a three-part graphic novel series about his experience as a leader for the Civil Rights Movement. Today, March is one of the biggest books in the country, selling out on Amazon overnight. And it’s all because the next president decided to pick a…
Most people know Daniel Clowes as the creator of Ghost World, but that’s just because it was made into a movie. He’s done many highly acclaimed comics and now another one is getting the movie treatment: Patience, about a man whose wife (named Patience) is murdered. Then, 10 years later, he discovers a time machine…
Tetris is one of the most popular and ubiquitous video games of all time. No matter how long it’s been since folks played it, the classic puzzle challenge seems to be permanently projected onto people’s brains and eyelids. It turns out that the story of how the megahit game’s creation and dissemination is as…
Philip Pullman is best-known for the His Dark Materials fantasy trilogy; its first book, The Golden Compass, was adapted into a feature film in 2007. Now the author is trying something new with his first graphic novel, which has a most excellent premise: it’s about a time-traveling ghost ship.

Neil Gaiman's latest book is so good it's already being turned into a film, and it's not even out yet. Together with illustrator Lorenzo Mattotti, Gaiman has turned the fairy tale classic Hansel and Gretel into a graphic novel, and now Hollywood is turning that into a movie.
Obviously, it's not quite as stylized and sexy as the original Sin City but this 8-bit video game version by CineFix does a great job in mimicking the original by adding the perfect dab of color to accentuate the shadowy world of the graphic novel. The whole thing plays out like a comic strip.

Disney is rolling out their very first graphic novel, titled and inspired by the beloved Tomorrowland ride Space Mountain. Penned by Bryan Q. Miller and drawn by Kelley Jones, take a look at the very first images of the "real-life" Space Mountain. Which, honestly, is nothing like we expected.
The long awaited Y: The Last Man movie adaptation is as "close as it's ever been" to happening. Which fills us all with excitement and dread. Please be good. Please be good.
The gorgeously illustrated book Salsa Invertebraxa, by Paul "Mozchops" Phippen, is like nothing you've ever seen before. Written in crazy, Dr. Seuss-style rhyme, it's the half-fantasy, half-hard science story of a jungle full of insects who will do anything to survive. Including go to war.
David Foster Wallace once wrote that "Every love story is a ghost story." Which sounds awfully pretentious, until you come across a book like Mark Siegel's graphic novel Sailor Twain, or The Mermaid in the Hudson and you realize just how intertwined the two genres really can be. It's a tale of lust, desire and lost…
