Bustle: The Graphic Novel To Read Based On Your Zodiac Sign

“Bustle: The Graphic Novel To Read Based On Your Zodiac Sign” / Bustle / CHARLOTTE AHLIN / March 18, 2016

I won't argue that Astrology is a real science, but I will argue that graphic novels are real literature. Despite all the moms and teachers who want you to think otherwise, comic books and graphic novels can be just as beautiful, funny, terrifying, and inspiring as books without pictures.

Plus, there are simply so many graphic novels to choose from. For the hotheaded Aries, there are smartly-written superhero comics filled with capes and punching. For the emotional Cancer, there are poignant memoirs filled with feelings and hugs. For the secretive Scorpio, there are gorgeously illustrated stories so strange and distressing that you'll probably never sleep again. No matter which stars command your fate, you're sure to find at least one graphic novel that speaks to you.

Of course, every Zodiac Sign should feel free to read whichever graphic novel they like. But if you're looking for a good book to start with, why not ask the cosmos for a solid recommendation? Even if you're already well-versed in comics and graphic memoirs, why not let the Zodiac pick out your next read? Whether you think that Astrology is spot on or total pseudoscience, you can never have enough book recommendations. And you can certainly never read enough graphic novels.

2. Taurus: Supermutant Magic Academy by Jillian Tamaki
Taurus is the reliable, patient member of the Zodiac, but that doesn't mean that Taurus is boring. As a Taurus, you're both stubborn and creative, and you would totally understand the angst of the witches, mutants, and paranormal teens at the Supermutant Magic Academy. It's a book full of humor and ennui. This slice-of-life-meets-magical-teens story will appeal to your practical side, as well as your love for creative ideas.

9. Sagittarius: Hark! A Vagrant by Kate Beaton
You're the fun guy of the Zodiac, Sagittarius. But you're also a curious, philosophically-minded individual, and you love to learn. That's why you must immediately drop everything and read Kate Beaton's Hark! A Vagrant. It's the smart, hysterical collection of comics on history and literature that you never knew you needed. Beaton can turn anything from Napoleon to Nancy Drew into a complete laugh riot (and you just might learn something, too).
