The days of graphic novels being relegated to superhero fanboys are long gone, as is the stigma that they're just for kids. Many graphic novels are works of art that rival classic novels when it comes to story and structure. If the last time you read a picture book was in kindergarten, it's time to open up new worlds for yourself and start reading these 100 best graphic novels. Filled with superheroes and grade-school heroines, psychotic villains and mythical creatures, tenderness and heartbreak, '100 Greatest Graphic Novels' celebrates some of the finest graphic novels ever written and drawn.
