Great Graphic Novels for Teens: The 2014 Selections Are Announced


Each year, the fantastic librarians on the Great Graphic Novels for Teens committee (a part of YALSA, the Young Adult Library Services Association) compile a massive list of the best graphic novels suited to teen readers. The list this year features 78 comics, all vetted for quality and content and suitable for readers ages 12 to 18. The Top 10 this year is an amazing compilation showing the variety of comics available to readers (of all ages --- this list would appeal to many adults as well). The GGNFT Top 10 is listed below; below for the full list of the committee's selections, click here.
