Top 10 Best Graphic Novels of All Time

We've grown up attached to graphic novels since we were kids but there original stories have also managed to entertain us in our adulthood. Here's a list of 10 best graphic novels of all time.

1

Batman- The Dark Knight Returns

Batman- The Dark Knight Returns

Unarguably one of the best graphic novels of all time, Frank Miller brought back our beloved Batman as a darker, more mysterious character. The story has transcended from the book to the movie we all have revered.

2

Watchmen

Watchmen

This novel is like no other. Selling more than a million copies all over the world, watchmen reinvents comic books by introducing the adult audience to this form of art. Watchmen depicts an alternate history where superheroes emerged in the 1940s and 1960s, helping the United States to win the Vietnam War.

3

Sandman

Sandman

Written by Neil Gaiman, Sandman tells the story of Dream of the Endless, who rules over the world of dreams. The novel has captured every reader's attention because of Gaiman's trademark use of anthropomorphic personification of various metaphysical entities, while also blending mythology and history in its horror setting within the DC Universe.

4

The Complete Maus

The Complete Maus

Why Maus you ask? This graphic novel, which was serialized, deploys postmodern techniques and represents Jews as mice and other Germans and Poles as cats and pigs. It is one of critics' most favorite graphic novels of all time.

5

Batman- Arkham Asylum

Batman- Arkham Asylum

A Serious house on serious earth. Joker in Arkham Asylum is plain bone chilling. Written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by Dave McKean, in this comic, the inmates of Arkham Asylum have taken over Gotham's detention center for the criminally insane on April Fool's Day, demanding Batman in exchange.

6

David Boring

David Boring

David Boring is about a reserved guy and his life as it moves around his friends, family and the surroundings. What makes the comic commendable is that the twits and turns in the plots are extremely unpredictable. Bizarre and a little sexually explicit, you should read this if you want to be entertained.

7

Bone

Bone

Jeff Smith's most popular work so far, Bone follows the Bone cousins, white, bald cartoon caricatures and their adventures. With a riveting and beautifully crafted story, Bone is worth a read.

8
