Hey, this is Sean from 3OH!3 and these are my top ten favorite comics/graphic novels. I got into comics at an older age then most people do. So I have to admit these comics are a little bit more mature in content. Nonetheless, these are great books and are definitely worth picking up.

10) Clumsy

Author: Jeffrey Brown

Publisher: Top Shelf Productions

Anyone who has had a failed relationship can identify with. It is awkward and honest. Kind of sappy but in the best way.

2) Summer Blonde
