Best Seasonal Graphic Novels in 2022

Seasonal Graphic Novels

If you are looking for a new read this season, consider seasonal graphic novels. My favorite one is Mooncakes by Laurie Lee. I read it in time for fall and loved it! The book's beautiful illustrations, colorful characters, and delicious pumpkin flavor made for a perfect autumn reading experience. Here are some other seasonal graphic novels you may enjoy. Listed below are some of my favorite picks for each season. We hope you'll find something you like!

Laurie Lee

The story behind Laurie Lee's Seasonal Graphic Novel is a bit unusual. The writer grew up in an ordinary, low-class family, and was procrastinating because of her ill mother. Laurie found distractions in the pub, and in her messy room, and she began to scribble in soft pencil. She hoped to find patterns of words that would convey a feeling, but avoided overly lofty language.

In her opening recollection, Laurie Lee remembers her mother as "an artist, a light-giver, and an original." His account of his early childhood is classic memoir. While he was away from home, the author was still rooted in the Cotswolds. At the age of 19, Lee left his home in Gloucestershire and began a journey to "discover the world." At age forty-four, she returned to her childhood village of Slad.

Her life was shaped by events, and her writings have been influenced by the lives of others. She once traveled through Spain with her violin, earning money to fund her artistic projects. The result is a graphic novel that is as sensitive and as poetic as her childhood. Despite this, Laurie Lee has remained a favorite author among readers and critics. Although her writing style is unique, her work is always worth reading.

Dan Mora

Continuing the tradition of bringing Christmas cheer to readers everywhere, Dan Mora's Seasonal Graphic Novel series brings a new story every December. Using the same format as Doctor Who Christmas Specials, the series focuses on the mystical barbarian Klaus, who operates a cosmic sleigh and savors the joy of giving. He is also a member of the League of Santas and has been a participant in the mythical Lunar Civil War.

The third part of the 'House of Gotham' series continues the story of Pola Cola, who forms an alliance with the evil Anti-Klaus of the Underworld. The Anti-Klaus is basically Lobo Santa, but with a Cosmic Bike. They are doppelgängers of each other. As in the first volume, the art is beautifully done by Mora using water-colors. Fans will appreciate his use of color.

The creators of this comic created a world, but Dan Mora brings it to life. His work is similar to that of Jeff Lemire and Mike Mignola, as they have a wide-ranging universe, and a cool cast of characters. The story has the potential for almost any kind of plot. For example, Santa as a cosmic super hero rides a sleigh drawn by wolves. Fans of this comic should read it.

Dan Morrison

In the first book of Dan Morrison's new series, Santa Claus returns to save the world, but this year, the story has an even darker twist: a mysterious ghost is behind the holiday. But with each new volume, Santa faces a new threat. Dan Morrison and artist Dan Mora bring a new dimension to the characters in these books, making them feel as if they're part of a larger mythology.

The first novel, Santa Claus as Psychedelic Superhero, will launch December 6th from BOOM! Studios and features variant covers by Frank Quitely and John Cassaday. Although there is a strong storyline, the book doesn't stand out as a stand-alone novel. It's best enjoyed as a series rather than alone. There's a strong sense of family and community in this story, and the characters are incredibly well developed.

After publishing 'Hexed' by Boom! Studios, Dan Mora worked on the series for another publisher. It featured Michael Alan Nelson's interpretation of a female Lucifer (previously drawn by Emma Rios). Upon his departure from 'Hexed', Mora continued to work with Dan Morrison and Grant Morrison on 'Klaus' (2014-2016). During this time, Mora also did penciling and coloring for the new Buffy series, as well as for several other projects.

Dan Mora's Mooncakes

Costa Rican artist Dan Mora has worked for major publishing companies in the US on titles like 'Hexed' and 'Klaus.' His work has garnered him awards, including the Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award. His work is available in many forms, including comic books and graphic novels. He is the author of two novels, 'The Black Dahlia' and 'Mooncakes', and is currently working on a third book.

While at Boom! Studios, Mora worked on several comic book series, including 'Hexed' and 'Klaus', which starred Michael Alan Nelson's female interpretation of Lucifer. The series was hailed by critics as the 'new Buffy.' Mora also collaborated with writer/artist Grant Morrison on the popular comic 'Klaus', doing penciling and coloring duties.

Suzanne Walker

Mooncakes is the first graphic novel in the Seasonal Graphic Novels series by Suzanne Walker. Mooncakes is a wholesome story about a young girl named Nova Huang and her werewolf friend Tam. This story focuses on family and harmony with nature. Tam's healing and Nova's family relationships are all well-written, but there is only a small amount of depth to the story. However, the story is still enjoyable and ends with a satisfying happy ending.

Nova, the main character in Seasonal Graphic Novels, is a Chinese-American girl grieving the death of her parents. She lives with two grandmothers who are all witches, and the three of them collect spell books. Her mother, also a witch, grows jealous of Tam, and the two become best friends. However, their love affair is short-lived, and Nova and Tam end up falling for each other.

Honor Girl is the second graphic novel in the series. In Honor Girl, a boy named Hector wants Ari's bakery job, but Ari doesn't want to move to the big city. Meanwhile, Hector wants to be her boss. As the two grow closer, Ari starts to feel romantic feelings for him. But how can she convince him to leave her bakery job? The answer may surprise you. This graphic novel is a great read for teens.

Wendy Xu

This year's "Seasonal Graphic Novel" from Wendy Xu is both beautiful and a joy to read. It features a Chinese-American heroine, Nova, who is grieving over the loss of her parents. Her two grandmothers, both witches, collect rare spell books and have been her friends since they were children. Nova has also always wanted to meet a werewolf, and she's thrilled to finally have one!

The story is full of wonder and suspense. The young witch Sophie's magic is shaky. When she's sent to live with her relatives for a spell-casting competition, the relatives aren't interested in teaching her magic, but they want her to help them with the chores. So, Sophie attempts to do magic on her own. In the process, she accidentally gets entangled in the magic of a young water dragon, Lir.
