Andrew's Graphic Novel Picks

Andrew, at the Centennial Hills Library, is the Go To Guy for Graphic Novels. He reads 'em, enjoys 'em, and knows which are the best! Each month, Andrew suggests three wonderful graphic novels for Teens or Adults. (Sometimes for Kids too!)

Here are Andrew's picks for the month:

Green Lantern: Secret Origin
Geoff Johns

Witness the beginning of the career of the bravest Green Lantern who's ever lived as the "secret origin" of Hal Jordan is revealed.

Discover how and why Hal received the power ring that changed his life forever.

Uncover the mystery of the death of Jordan's predecessor, Abin Sur.

Find out why Jordan's teacher and mentor, Sinestro, became obsessed with the prophecy of the apocalyptic end of the universe - "the Blackest Night."

Thor: Volume 1
J. Michael Straczynski and Olivier Coipel

Not a clone! Not a robot! Not an imaginary story! The God of Thunder is officially BACK! You've waited for it, you've demanded it...and we say thee YEA!

The Odinson comes roaring to life in this highly anticipated ongoing series by red-hot superstars J. Michael Straczynski (Amazing Spider-Man) and Olivier Coipel (House of M)!

But how does a god return from Ragnarok? And what place will he find in a world torn by Civil War?

Captain America: Reborn
Ed Brubaker

Steve Rogers' closest friends and allies may have found a way to bring back the original Captain America. Or is what they found something more sinister?

The Red Skull's greatest plan to destroy Captain America has been in motion and its completion is almost at hand. Will Captain America be lost forever, or will he be REBORN?
