    Lightbulb Favourite self contained graphic novels from Image?

    What you got?
    Can physical comic books be still in good reading condition during my old age?

    Velvet is not a graphic novel. It's a collection of single issues.

    Collections of single issues are also considered graphic novels by Nielsen BookScan. It's just not an original graphic novel, though. Graphic novel as a term is pretty much to avoid the "comics are for kids" mentality via the book market.

    Hopefully, this will count: Darkminds/Witchblade is my favorite.

    Yes, big time. If you want to be a real stickler, you could sort of count this book as part of the <i>Criminal</i> series, but if you've never read any of those it doesn't matter, since it's entirely self-contained. And once you've read it, you will want to go back and read all the other Brubaker / Phillips books anyway, because you'll be a fan.

    Pride of Baghdad by Brian K. Vaughan, and Niko Henrichon comes to mind.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - Paper Girls - Runaways - The Wild Storm

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.
