I’ve really been getting into graphic novels lately and I constantly find myself on the lookout for more. Especially ones with nice covers. With graphic novels, I think it’s fair to judge them by their covers as aesthetic is a main feature.
The Tea Dragon Festival by Kay O’Neill
I am constantly blown away by the art style of this series. It is one of my absolute all-time favourites and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you definitely should. Everything is so magical and alive and the stunning covers are only just the beginning.
The Tea Dragon Festival isn’t my favourite of the series but it’s definitely still a beautiful cover.
Synopsis: Rinn has grown up with the Tea Dragons that inhabit their village, but stumbling across a real dragon turns out to be a different matter entirely! Aedhan is a young dragon who was appointed to protect the village but fell asleep in the forest eighty years ago. With the aid of Rinn’s adventuring uncle Erik and his partner Hesekiel, they investigate the mystery of his enchanted sleep, but Rinn’s real challenge is to help Aedhan come to terms with feeling that he cannot get back the time he has lost.
Season of the Bruja Vol. 1 by Aaron Duran
This cover blew me away the first time I saw it and gave me expectations for this graphic novel that were far too high. The art style is absolutely gorgeous and I love how bold and colourful everything is. It’s definitely an eye-catching one.
Synopsis: From a young age, Althalia knew she would someday be the last of her kind—a bruja, tasked with keeping the power and stories of the ancient ways from fading fully into history. Never alone, Althalia works in a paranormal museum with her friends, a real-life Chupacabra and a were-coyote, while living with and caring for her beloved abuela. Through these powerful connections, her skills and knowledge grow.
