One of my all time favorite graphic novel sets is the Doctor Who Classics. This is a full color edition from May, 2010. An important part of a graphic novel is the art and presentation of the book.  Doctor Who is all in color. This state-of-the-art coloring is done by Charlie Kirchoff. The stories in Vol. 1 include City of the Damned, Dreamers of Death, Iron Legion, Spidergod, and Changes plus more. My favorite is The Time Witch. Enjoy this volume and others.

Children enjoy Graphic Novels, too! If you have a reluctant reader who might enjoy reading pictures, Owly is the series for you! There are hardly any words at all; every once in a while the kind-hearted Owly has a list for you to read.
