List your favorite graphic novels this year and why you like them.
Hari Conner released the final book in their webcomic series Finding Home this year and it remains one of my favourite series. It has absolutely gorgeous scenery and a really well-written slow-burn romance.
Another graphic novel that came out this year, that I really enjoyed was Poiko: Quests and Stuff by Brian Middleton (another book published by Wonderbound!). The story is sweet and gentle, perfect for younger readers.
