Selecting Comics and Graphic Books For Adults


New Member
I do not have many sources to finding graphic books that are going to be of interest to me. I have passed the stage of reading about superheroes. Paste Magazine has a section for comics, but it is difficult to be certain that a reviewed title is going to be of interest to an adult. Occasionally, I have seen possible graphic books in The New York Times Book Review, and I found a book at Medium which Bill Gates recommended. I guess I am just going to have to try searching on Google. Does anyone else have any suggestions as to possible sources for adult-themed graphic novels?
Not knowing what interests you I'll suggest Alterna Comics and IDW

Thanks. I'll try them. I did my Google search, and found two fiction titles that may be good for me. I am having bad luck with nonfiction however. Selections found are few at this point.

regdog - Thank you for all your comments. At this point I could not figure how to PM you, so I figured I would leave my note at the end of your comments.
I hope they have something you like. I haven't found much in the way of nonfiction graphic novels, but I'll look around.

Thank you. I found a couple mature and young adult titles at Alterna. There, I saw a link that led me to comixology and finally to the Ignatz awards where I really found interesting titles. I have been looking for titles that take you beyond the obligatory sex and violence.
