    Default Graphic novels

    So, I have a pal who has difficulty reading. He tried reading several books but couldn't get into them. I was thinking that graphic novels might be better because there's a lot going on visually in addition to the text.

    Based on his character and the movies he said were his favorite, Watchmen by Alan Moore came to mind. Except it has them breaking a character out of prison at one point. Also it's very violent... so I am afraid of it getting rejected on those two grounds. I did call and ask about book criteria but they just mentioned it has to be paperback and from a distributor directly.

    Thoughts? Alternative suggestions for good graphic novels?

    Anything ordered off Amazon or Barnes and Noble should be fine. If its coming in from a small retailer, it might get flagged and rejected.

    As for content, well, pictures are probably more controversial than words. Its no problem to mail inmates novels that describe all sorts of questionable stuff as long as the book isn't on a ban list or obviously pornographic. But if its a graphic novel showing it... ya it will probably get rejected if its too explicit.

    Akira is a good graphic novel series. Wool: The Graphic Novel by Hugh Howey. Preacher by Garth Ennis.
