Comics, Graphic Novels, and Manga for Tweens


The other day, I had a patron come up to me and ask me for manga, comic, and graphic novel suggestions. They liked the series Amulet, and wanted something
exciting and funny more geared to girls.


Have you ever had a reference questions where you just froze up?
 I had no idea how to tackle this one.  

I have read Smile, Sisters, and El Deafo, but that was the extent of my experience. 
Besides the classics such as Garfield and Calvin and Hobbes, I wasn't sure how to start. 

Thankfully, my amazing coworkers were there to save the day!

After this occurrence, I realized how foreign this genre was to me. 
So I challenged myself to read more comics, manga, and graphic novels.

After some research and a lot of reading, I formed a list of some of the best of the best within this genre.I plan to use this list this summer.

So here is a list (in no particular order) of some great graphic novels,
 comics, and manga for tweens:
