Panelathon is a read-a-thon created by Natalie at Pagesandpanels. She’s co-hosting with two others, Jesse and Shae, over on YouTube and Twitter! This is a comic-graphic novel-manga based read-a-thon, the first I’ve ever seen solely dedicated to that, and is going to be a great time!
Panelathon is happening at the end of this month, from May 20th to May 27th, so I decided I would do a whole new instalment in my Graphic Recommendations series, this time Recommending reads based on the read-a-thon prompts.
I’m not affiliated with the read-a-thon or anything, nobody approached me to do this, I just think it’s great to encourage more people to read things in the graphic format that tend to get overlooked or avoided as it’s not ~real reading~ to some people.
I won’t be covering every prompt, but this will basically cover all your grounds for the read-a-thon, giving as many ideas as possible. Also, this is going to be a mix of titles I have read, and some that I haven’t but want to read, just to give a broader range!
~Not published by the ‘Big Three’ (DC, Marvel, Image)~
~Graphic memoirs/non-fiction stories inspired by real events~
~LGBT+ characters (on the page representation!)~
~A fantastical journey~
(This is for a genre I don’t typically read from)
(One of my favourite genres)
(My other favourite genre)
And those are all my recommendations. I really hope everyone gets a little something from this, I had so much fun compiling the list and sorting my own TBR. I’m such a mood reader that I won’t put my TBR here, but if anyone wants to follow along with my progress, I’ll most likely be updating on Twitter!
(Also, if you can’t make any of the covers out/want any more info, drop a comment or DM me on Twitter, I’m always about to talk comics and manga)
Thank you for reading!
