Have a Look: Colourful Graphic Novels
Check out some of our most colourful comics!
When I was growing up, one of the reasons I most looked forward to visiting my grandparents was knowing I'd have the chance to read the colour comics they'd saved from the paper. Since they lived in a bigger city, there were even more weekend comics to read than in our local paper. I feel the same excitement today whenever I pick up these graphic novels. There's always something a little bit magical about reading in colour. The books featured here cast an even greater spell with expansive palettes, mesmerizing patterns, and innovative storytelling.
