Although we've become adept at recommending individual books to individual readers over the years, there are some exceptional graphic novels which we all love ourselves, and which have proved to have a spectacularly broad and long-lasting appeal at Page 45.

So here's a section which should prove invaluable both to those embarking on excited voyages of comicbook discovery for the very first time, and comics connoisseurs who may have missed out on some absolute beauties simply because they couldn't be found on shelves eleswhere.

It's by no means a definitive "best of" (we'll be rearranging the furniture from time to time), but a carefully selected, diverse range of books to whet your appetite, representing hours of negotiation between ourselves and an almost impossible degree of self-discipline!
