Need a break from textbooks and essays?  Craving a treat for your brain?  You might not think reading would be the way to go, but I beg to differ.  Especially when it comes to graphic novels!  The combination of expressive pictures, short bursts of text, and fast-moving storylines is a perfect recipe for great entertainment that won't insult your intelligence.  There are so many different types of graphic novels and comics out now, that there is sure to be one to fit your mood.  Creepy, hilarious, thought-provoking, suspenseful, dramatic, romantic...  they've got it all!  We recently updated our Recommended page with a list of Great Graphic Novels for Teens!
 
Here are few that I personally enjoyed:
 
In the mood for something funny and light? 
Drama
While working on the sets and stage crew for her school play artistic, enthusiastic, (and just a little bit clueless) Callie stumbles into some rocky relationship territory.  Pick up this cute story and prepare to forget your own troubles!  
 
Want something more serious and thought-provoking? 
Trinity
This interesting book details the race to develop, build, and deploy the first atomic bomb.  Chronicling everything from the initial intellectual pursuit to the ultimate and incredible devastation caused by dropping the bomb, it's anything but forgettable.    
 
2012 was a great year for graphic novels. What are some of your favorites?  Let us know in the comments!
