Flashlight Worthy Books List: Best Graphic Novels of 2009
See what graphic novels I and others considered the best of 2009 in this list on Flashlight Worthy, a website of books recommended by bloggers and others. My selection was Detroit Metal City, vol. 1, by Kiminori Wakasugi. Here's my recommendation:
Main character Soichi is a sweet-as-pie boy from the country with dreams of starting a pop band. Instead, he becomes the lead singer of death metal band Detroit Metal City, where he sports KISS-inspired make-up as Krauser II. This is not a graphic novel for the faint of heart, but if you like awkward humor and irony — and know when to not take a book too seriously — this is the book for you!
