The most common question we get asked from new fans is simply: Where do I begin?
The DC Essential Graphic Novels 2017 catalog is our answer, and we’re thrilled to share it with you.
DC has long been the home of the genre’s most seminal graphic novels. Fresh off the pages, DC’s characters have found their way to movie theaters, television sets and video game consoles around the world. Our heroes and villains are hotter than ever in the wake of hit TV shows such as The Flash and Supergirl, and in anticipation of the upcoming box office giants Wonder Woman and Justice League, following our incredibly successful 2016 film releases. Cultural awareness of all things DC has never been stronger and, in turn, popular interest in the source material is at an all-time high.
Newly revised for 2017, this catalog has been specifically built to introduce readers to our expansive collection with a curated touch. For those just getting into comics, we have listed our best and most culturally relevant graphic novels–from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal WATCHMEN and Frank Miller’s classic BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, to new classics like Paul Dini’s impactful memoir THE DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY. This catalog guides curious fans to the most accessible entry points into comics, moves them on to spotlights and even suggests reading orders for getting to know some of the world’s most recognizable characters. This new edition includes updated reading lists featuring graphic novels starring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the Justice League, as well as the best collections from Vertigo and MAD.
We continually strive to create the best and most diverse graphic novel library possible. We’re positive that we have something for every fan–and to help them find it, we are also offering the DC Essential Graphic Novels 2017 catalog free download on Netgalley and Edelweiss, and participating digital retailers.
