i grew up reading archie comics, tin tin and a few others like x-men and batman, only briefly though because they were expensive in pakistan. anyway, only until recently did i discover graphic novels to be so much fun, amazing in illustration and comprising actual adult stories. so when some relatives were visiting from the states, i asked my much beloved cousin to send me my favourite three from amazon. and guess what, she sent me brand new ones. yours truly is in possession of her new favourite reads but also cannot put them down.
