My son & I Bone. YES!!!Axiem wrote: ↑Fri 12 Jan 2018, 06:16Looking at my shelf of graphic novels / manga, what stands out to me:
Bone (Jeff Smith) - I'd classify it as fantasy-adventure
Maus (Art Spiegelman) - Depressing, about World War II, but soooo good. Not quite in what you were asking for, but good enough for me to recommend it anyway
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (Hayao Miyazaki) - Fantasy/sci-fi adventure, and so much better than the movie (even though the movie's also good). Despite being technically sci-fi, the technology is much less a part of the plot than the characters doing stuff, in my opinion. I read it far more like a fantasy than a sci-fi, even though it is the latter, strictly speaking (and, to be fair, is ultimately something that drives the plot)
Maus - I agree! defs depressing, but good. Sort of like Mickey Mouse and Felix the Cat meet the movie Train de la Vie. But not. Unforgettable images & imagery.
