New & Noteworthy Graphic Novels for All Ages

With the publication of Alison Bechdel's second graphic memoir, Are You My Mother?: A Comic Drama, & Craig Thompson's Habibi fresh in my mind, I feel compelled to revisit one of my favorite topics: graphic novels in the library catalog.  Here are some of the top graphic novels for adult & youth, as suggested by the Booklist magazine of March 15, 2012, & a few other of the latest graphic novel arrivals for good measure. As Abrams ComicArts advertises, "Powerful stories, artfully told!"
