Two of my previous articles, Ten Great Graphic Novels Being Sold on Amazon for a Penny & its sister article were somewhat popular, so I looked to write a third entry, but I found that there are many great graphic novels that, while costing more than a penny, were easily affordable and should be considered must reads for a comics fan (in my ever so humble opinion).

Silk Tapestry and Other Chinese Folk Tales: Songs of Our Ancestors Volume 2
Silent Invasion: Secret Affairs & Red Shadows By Michael Cherkas & Larry Hancock. The Silent Invasion is one of those rare books that was truly ahead of its time. Coming out in 1986, it was a black-and-white comic, well before black and white comics were fashionable. It dealt with a secret government conspiracy, involving aliens, well before the X-Files popularized the idea. The Silent Invasion was a victim of its own originality, and never got the recognition that it deserved. It is a paranoid cold war thriller that revolves around reporter Matt Sinkage who after having an encounter with aliens, cannot convince others of their existence. This collects them first two, of four, volumes.
