I meant to post a reading update, but a full one isn't going to happen now.
I did read a pretty good graphic novel on the train today.
Courtney Crumrin & The Night Things by Ted Naifeh.
It's a disaffected girl meets old uncle who lives in old house in proximity to werewolves and goblins and things. Not usually up my alley, but this was done smartly and ok for elementary kids, I think.
Here's the creator's page.
The publisher has some pdf samples here and here.
I'll try and get the other collections to look at from the library.
