A rich and beautiful epic, Jeff Smith’s Bone is the story of three cousins run out of their hometown who happen upon a valley where dragons, rat creatures and a Lord of Locusts are in general populace. With former royalty in hiding, the Bone cousins find themselves in the middle of the dissolution of an already shaky truce when a mysterious dark force attempts to free itself. Entertaining for both readers young and old, Bone starts off small and hilarious, slowly ballooning in both scope and emotion before barreling towards a climax reminiscent of Helm’s Deep. If you get that reference, this book is for you. And, if you don’t? . . . Eh, check it out anyway. (Suggested Age: 8+)

“Here’s what vampires shouldn’t be: pallid detectives who drink Bloody Marys and only work at night; lovelorn southern gentlemen; anorexic teenage girls; boy-toys with big dewey eyes. What should they be? Killers, honey. Stone killers who never get enough of that tasty Type-A.” With this introduction, Stephan King, who co-authored this volume with Scott Snyder, sets the stage for a graphic novel aimed at people who love vampires but have grown exhausted with their recent personifications in popular culture. In this beautiful, sprawling story that flashes between two time periods spanning over fifty years, war is declared between old blood European vampires and new blood Americans. Terribly dark, witty, gorgeous and fulla’ blood. Just what a vampire should be. (Suggested Age: 16+)

This description applies to the series not this one volume. Celebrating its seventh year in publication, The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman had a banner year in 2010. After winning the 2010 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series, AMC (Emmy award winning dramas Mad Men and Breaking Bad) recently found much success with their adaptation of Kirkman’s graphic novels. Follow Officer Rick Grimes, who has just awoken from a month long coma to find the country, possibly the world, overrun with, well, the walking dead. Thankfully not another violent, blood-and-guts based horror comic, The Walking Dead is a series about people, as well as zombies. More so, it is about people being put in impossible situations, their ever growing psychological damage and how they cope with staring both the apocalypse, and each other, in the face. (Suggested Age: 18+)
