No longer rashly dismissed as cartoonish fripperies, today’s graphic literature is every bit the equal of its contemporary fiction counterpart. Whether telling original stories of depth and complexity, paying tribute to important figures past and present, or filtering established literature through the graphic prism, there is nothing that cannot be achieved by the judicious juxtaposition of word and image.

Affectionate, hilarious and filled with dazzling puns, Flake tells of rival ice-cream men in a small coastal resort in Northern England. While principally comic, Dooley’s very funny debut pays visual homage to Chris Ware’s melancholy, but with a huge burst of sunshine and optimism thrown in. Flake is a delightful, laugh-out-loud graphic novel that puts Dooley into the top ranks of comic fiction.

A devastating example of what the graphic novel form is capable of, Sabrina is a very 21st century story of internet violence, fake news and conspiracy theories. Drawn in a deliberately plain style that chillingly normalises the brutality and trauma its characters undergo, Drnaso’s Man Booker Prize-longlisted work stands as a towering achievement in the genre.
