Editor's Note: Visual Reads is a monthly series focusing on the York County Public Library's ever growing collection of graphic novels. Whether you are partial to super heroes or love to see a well-done adaptation of your favorite novel, we've got plenty to choose from.
Our first post introducing graphic novels covered just some of the hundreds of superhero titles available from York County Public Library. This post will focus on the graphic novels that avoid the traditional superhero subject matter, but are no less exciting!
While non-superhero comics existed in the newspaper "funny pages" before even comic books arose, it has been in recent times that their popularity and variety have grown into a new genre of graphic novels for those who don't really care to read about superheroes. From science fiction and horror stories for adults to books that bring lessons to teens and children in an easy to read format, the genre of non-superhero graphic novels has something for every interest.
At the York County Public Library, we have a huge variety of these more unique graphic novels for all ages to read. Here are some of our favorites.
