You got some good ones in there! I've read Mother, Come Home and Ghost World (you gotta watch the movie too!) Several of the other ones I'm hoping to read someday!

I've seen ghost world actually, a few years ago. Back before I had any idea who Scarlett Johansen was and recognized the other girl (whose name I now can't remember) from Now and Then. I didn't know the movie was based off a graphic novel. Can't wait to read it. I'll probably end up watching the movie again too. :)

It's one of my favorite movies! I love it! I'm going to be reading I think 2 of Daniel Clowes other books for the challenge!

I didn't know Neil Gaiman did graphic novels! I'm going to see if I can find one.

Thanks!! :)

Neil Gaiman has a TON of graphic novels. Alot of Sandman comics. They just turned Coraline into a graphic novel, which I should probably just go ahead and add to my list. :)

Neil Gaiman is so amazing....
