What is your take on graphic novels? Being from the older generation, I am not a fan. Give me a good book (with no pictures), and let me use my imagination as to what a scene or person looks like. I know they are supposed to encourage reluctant readers to read and I'm all for that. But for me, not so much.

Being an artist myself, I have to say that there are a lot of graphic novels out there that have amazing artwork in them. This is the only reason why I look at them at all. I find that most are difficult to follow along with and why I would rather be reading a chapter book instead too.

i love art and I love books. However, I do not care for graphic novels. If I cannot imagine in my mind what is going on, chances are this is not the right book for me.

Even though I'm an artist, and I'm from the generation that grew up with graphic novels, I'm not a fan of American graphic novels at all. I am however, a fan of Japanese manga, which is similar, but the artwork and stories are more appealing to me.
