Graphic Novels Challenge 2009

So I was super excited to find out that Laza had started a graphic novel challenge! She has even created levels of participation you can choose from. So I looked over all the graphic novels I have to read and wanted to read and decided to go for the highest level, Doctorate, which is to read 24 graphic novels! I'm taking the term graphic novel a bit loosely to include some anthologies, smaller comic books and an illustrated zine anthology. Anyhow I'm very excited. Check out the challenge's blog here to join!
