2015 Graphic Novels and Manga Reading Challenge: My Master List

I've gotten into Graphic Novels and Manga in the last couple of years - easily one of the best decisions I've ever made reading wise. I'm looking forward to catching up with existing series and discovering new ones in 2015.

But there's so many zillion books from other genres out there to tempt me. I'm so easily distracted...
Which is why I'm signing up for the 8th annual Graphic Novel and Manga Reading Challenge hosted by Nicola at her blog of the same name.

I'm aiming for the Bronze Age Level: to read and review 24 books during the year. If all goes to plan, that's roughly 2 Graphic Novels and/or Manga a month.

Here's my rough TBR idea list for the challenge - it's very liable to change:

* = Not yet released

  • Ms Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why* by G. Willow Wilson, Jacob Wyatt and Adrian Alphona
  • She Hulk Volume 2: Disorderly Conduct* by Charles Soule and Javier Pulido
