The Necessary Five

     Here is a list of the five graphic novels every collection of reading material ought to include, the five graphic novels that are most worthy of the term graphic literature.  For what it's worth, they're not actually my five favorite graphic novels, but the ones that most epitomize and exemplify the art form.  In democratic alphabetical order (by title), they are:

1. The Arrival by Shaun Tan
2. The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman
3. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
4. Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud
5. Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons
