New York Times' Bestsellers in Graphic Novels

To spice up our weekly graphic novel posts, I am combining the New York Times' posts into one monthly post covering hardcovers, paperbacks, and manga novels.

Asterios Polyp Batman: Cacophony Bleach Vol. 29 Book if Genesis: Illustrated Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth Maximum Ride vol. 2 Rosario + Vampire Vol. 10

Asterios Polyp by David Mazzucchelli is about an arrogant, prickly award-winning architect who's never built an actual building, and a pedant in the midst of a spiritual crisis. After the structure of his own life falls apart, he runs away to try to rebuild it into something new.

Batman: Cacophony by Kevin Smith and Walter Flanagan is set in Gotham City and the mysterious masked-killer known as Onomatopoeia, who sets his sights--and sounds--against The Caped Crusader.

Bleach Vol. 29 by Tite Kubo

The Book of Genesis: Illustrated by R. Crumb is the legendary illustrator's literal depiction of the Bible's first book, Genesis. His illustrations are profoundly honest and deeply moving.

Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth by Apostolos Doxiadis and others is a recount of the spiritual odyssey of philosopher Bertrand Russell. In his agonized search for absolute truth, Russell crosses paths with legendary thinkers and finds a passionate student in the great Ludwig Wittgenstein.

Maximum Ride Vol. 2 by James Patterson and NaRae Lee

Rosario + Vampire Vol. 10 by Akihisa Ikeda

In place of the second NYT post, I hope to add a special topic each month to either highlight a series, an author's works, or something similar. For suggestions and comments, feel free to post a comment or use the contact form to message me directly.
