The Greatest Graphic Novels and Collected Editions

List Criteria: English language comics, printed in graphic novels or collected editions (trade paperbacks).

A list of the best graphic novels and collected editions (trade paperbacks). The best graphic novels and collected editions are generally fan favorites and regarded highly by readers and collectors of graphic novels. If you're looking to read graphic novels that will keep your head in the pages long after you've stopped reading, these are some of the greatest graphic novels and collected editions to check out.

This list includes some of the best graphic novels for kids and teens, the top graphic novels for adults, and some collected editions for any age. Some of the greatest graphic novels, like Watchmen, have become some of the best superhero movies and the Hollywood obsession to turn graphic novels and collected editions into franchise movies.

For the purposes of this list of the best graphic novels and collected editions, multi-volume works with a clear beginning and end should be treated as one entry. Adaptations should generally be omitted. If you don't see your favorite graphic novel or collected edition on the list, feel free to add more so other collectors and new readers can get dialed in to what you think the top graphic novels are. And once you do add your choice for greatest graphic novel, make sure to vote it up so it gets to the top of the list of the greatest graphic novels and collected editions.
