The Top Ten graphic novels of the Fall (with previews): Atwood, Sattouf, Pedrosa, Thompson, more.

Twice a year Publishers Weekly previews the next six months of publishing and I assemble the list along with the Top Ten most interesting sounding books of the year. Usually this listing stays behind a paywall but this time its out where all can see! I’ve put together alst of 60 of the most notable graphic novels coming out between now and February 2017, and there are some surprises and real stunners, I think.

I also put together a Top Ten; a few of them I had to guess on but these sounded th emost interesting. Here’s a peek and a few previews:

A.D.: After Death
Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire. Image, Nov. 11
