Much Ado About Nothing and Buffy the Vampire slayer graphic novelsEarlier this academic year our Six Book Challenge students took part in voting for books they’d like to see us stock to count towards the Challenge.

One of them who has recently completed the Challenge told me how she’d loved reading the Manga Shakespeare Much Ado About Nothing edited by Richard Appignanesi. Since she finished the Challenge we’ve added Romeo and Juliet to our stock too. If you’re into graphic Shakespeare then why not try Macbeth by William Shakespeare edited by John McDonald?

If you’re a fan of Manga then you’ll also like these graphic novels:

Adamtine by Hannah Berry

Fables: Rose Red by Bill Willingham

Fables: Arabian Nights (and Days) by Bill Willingham

Buffy the Vampire Slayer- Time of Your Life by Joss Whedon

Graphic doesn’t necessarily mean it only applies to plays and novels. We’ve got some graphic books for students studying for Access to Higher Education:

Introducing Psychology: a Graphic Guide by Nigel C. Benson

Sociology in Pictures: Research Methods by Michael Haralambos and Wendy Hope
