Graphic novels: colouring some of our greatest stories in two dimensions.

Some novels read like a movie in your mind. Deeply imagined characters occupy and richly coloured settings – so authentic that readers are transported to exhilarating worlds. Occasionally, visual artists interact with these worlds also, breathing the imagery to life on illustrated pages of their own. And when powerful words and images combine, graphic novels can take fantastic fiction into bold new realms. Here are some books that do exactly that.
