The Best Of: Graphic Novel Covers #4

When it comes to graphic novels the cover is what makes me want to read them. As a visual media it makes sense, doesn’t it? The art style of a graphic novel can really make or break it and finding one with a great cover is a pretty good place to start. 

Talli, Daughter of the Moon Vol. 1 by Sourya Sihachakr

You can tell just how intense this graphic novel is from its cover and that’s pretty impressive if you ask me. It shows you exactly what the story will be like and I really enjoy the character designs. It’s very much a traditional anime style and that’s actually what drew me into it. 

Synopsis: Hidden within the walls of a secluded castle, Lord Borin raises his adopted daughter Talli in secret, and for good reason: Talli is a descendant of the Summoners, magical women hunted by those who fear their mysterious powers. Violently torn from her home, Talli sets out on a great journey in search of her origins and to learn the secrets of her great and dangerous power.

With the cruel Lord Ulric’s forces hot on her heels, Talli must keep one step ahead, gathering a motley crew of companions and protectors that includes the noble (some might say too noble) knight Sir Alan and the lethargic-but-ferocious swordsman Lélo. The ruthless Captain Nina pursues them doggedly, aware of the secret of Talli’s blood: the secret of the Summoners!

Heartstopper Volume Two by Alice Oseman

This is actually my least favourite cover out of the entire series, but it’s still great. I think the muted colours are what make it my least favourite because it isn’t very eye-catching. However, I love how cute Nick and Charlie look. 

Synopsis: Nick and Charlie are best friends. Nick knows Charlie’s gay, and Charlie is sure that Nick isn’t.

But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is discovering all kinds of things about his friends, his family … and himself.

Aquicorn Cove by Kay O’Neill

I’ve said this far too many times, but Kay O’Neill’s art style is my absolute favourite. I could ramble on about it all day, but no one wants that. 

If this cover doesn’t intrigue you to want to read this graphic novel then I don’t really know what else to say. The creature alone is enough to make me want to read it. Plus it just looks really cosy.

Synopsis: When Lana and her father return to their seaside hometown to help clear the debris of a storm, the last thing she expects is to discover a colony of Aquicorns—magical seahorse-like residents of the coral reef. As she explores the damaged town and the fabled undersea palace, Lana learns that while she cannot always count on adults to be the guardians she needs, she herself is capable of finding the strength to protect both the ocean, and her own happiness.
