Anthony’s trade paperback and graphic novel recommendations (spring 2016)

iPad and newspaper

Updated on December 10, 2021

I thought it might be useful to offer up a post listing my recommended trade paperbacks and graphic novels. The list is compiled from my comics solicitations posts for the period from January to March 2016. I’ve also added a few suggestions based on the New York Times’ graphic novel best seller list. Given the popularity and evergreen nature of graphic novels and trades, this post might be more useful in the long run than the monthly listings.

All of the trade paperbacks and graphic novels below (unless otherwise indicated) are currently available both in print and digitally via Comixology/Amazon.
