Graphic Novels Challenge 2015

You know I just love graphic novels and enjoy participating in Nicola's Graphic Novel Challenge every year! (This will be my 5th year participating!) It's a great way to discover new graphic novels too, because every month everyone lists the books they've read so you can explore what they've read and if they liked them. So, here we go again for 2015! It's officially the Graphic Novels Challenge 2015 hosted by Nicola from It's All Comic to Me.

Here's How it works…

Trying to keep things simple this year.  There will be 3 levels of play this year.  Please write a sign-up post on your blog and then sign-up below with a link to your specific sign-up post (NOT to your home page).

What counts:  graphic novels, collected trade editions, manga, comic strip collections, comic books. In print or digital. Anything else you feel is suitable.  My criteria is if it has either frames OR speech bubbles it counts.  I'm not going to be the comic police but if you are unsure, ask me in the comments any given month.

Here is how the Challenge will play out this year:

runs from Jan.1 - Dec. 31, 2015

The Levels...

Modern Age: read and review 12 books during the year (that's only 1 book a month)

Bronze Age: read and review 24 books during the year (Can you handle 2 books a month.)

Silver Age: read and review 52 books during the year (Are you up to a book a week!)

You must sign up for a level, but once you complete that level you may move up and try for the next one.

Last year I read a total of 28 graphic novels and manga (and that's not even counting the rereads of some of the manga I have enjoyed!) But I don't want to stress out, so I'm going to keep it simple and sign up for the Modern Age Level and read and review at least 12 books during the year! I'll be listing all the graphic novels & manga I've read for this challenge right here!

  Interested in signing up? Here's The Link! Thanks Nicola for hosting this challenge again!
