A lot of times you want to read a book, but just cannot squeeze in the time in your busy day. That’s why we have graphic novels – long standalone comics that make time fly by.

Listen to the latest episode on Abstract AF’s podcast where I recommend 5 graphic novel adaptations of popular fiction books. They may not capture the essence of the originals in their entirety, but are engaging and delightful nonetheless. These books are absolutely worth checking out if you’ve never had the time to read the long-form versions.
