Let's face it, the world of comic books or "Graphic Novels" as they are referred to currently, is overwhelmingly impenetrable for a lot of people these days. The sheer volume of new titles that ship each week make it hard to remember previously published books or even something that came out last Wednesday, but have no fear, Zanadu is here to help you discover what you didn't know you needed in your collection! We have thousands of titles available, but these are a few of our favorite forgotten gems kicking around the store.
And please don't ever hesitate to ask for recommendations or hazy recollections regarding books you might have missed while shopping at the store. Your friendly neighborhood comic monkeys are here to help! Remember, there is a comic for literally everyone on the planet--it's just a matter of unearthing it!

Corinna Park used to have big plans. In college, she imagined writing a best-selling novel and leading the idealized life of an author. After graduation, she moved to a big city and took a job at an advertising agency - just to pay off her student loans. Now she's worked in the same office for five years and the only thing she's written is copy. She feels numbed by the monotony of a life experienced through a series of screens. But whenever she shoplifts a magazine from the corner store near her apartment, she feels a little more alive. Yet Corinna knows there must be something more to life, and she faces the same question as does everyone of her generation: how to find it?
