7 Best Graphic Novels for 10 Year Olds

As you love your kid get excited with more and more reading with compelling stories so you can check out these Best Graphic Novels for 10 Year-Olds. In fact, graphic novels entice children into stories with illustrated comics and compelling plots told primarily through dialogue. Graphic novels are small and paperback in nature and they can seem much interesting than a traditional novel which is more suitable for kids. The illustrations help guide the story along and they are in general less text-heavy.

In addition, reading lovers can also potentially benefit from the opportunity to use their brains functioning in slightly different ways bringing together the story through both words and images.

Best Graphic Novels for 10 Year-Olds

Here I carefully compiled a list of favorite graphic novels for aged 10 years and up which are loved by kids also the best selling in the market.

1. Watchmen by Alan Moore

The greatest graphic novel in the history of the medium for intelligent grown-up readers perfect for your 10-year-olds the Watchmen by Alan Moore, the award-winning author of V for Vendetta and Batman: The Killing Joke.

In fact, the Watchmen is a deconstruction of the superhero, an examination of the overlap between Man and Superman, a recognition that we’re none of us capable of handling the responsibility that comes hand in hand with power. That talent, or strength whether human or superhuman does not somehow overcome the moral and mental frailties that are a part of the human condition.

Watchmen begins as a murder mystery that soon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy considered as one of the best graphic novels of all time also a gateway to the entire graphic storytelling medium.

The story itself is less important than the themes that story unearths and the backdrop. Watchmen is about morality, politics, humanity, about being a superhero, is about comics in general, and it’s about power.

Watchmen is also about literary, funny, erudite, tragic, exciting, and of course, fascinating.

“Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor…I am Pagliacci.” ― Alan Moore, Watchmen

2. New Kid by Jerry Craft

New Kid would definitely be the best graphic novel for 10 year-olds, an excellent choice for growing readers, an engrossing, humorous, and vitally important graphic novel.

But the fact is that instead of sending him to the art school of his dreams, his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school famous for its academics, where Jordan is one of the few kids of color in his entire grade.

As he makes the daily trip from his Washington Heights apartment to the upscale Riverdale Academy Day School, Jordan soon finds himself torn between two worlds and not really fitting into either one. The big question is that can Jordan learn to navigate his new school culture while keeping his neighborhood friends and staying true to himself?

Jordan Bank is one of a small number of students of color at the school but just like every other twelve-year-old middle school student has to navigate making new friends, avoiding awkward crushes, getting good grades, and making time to do what he loves most drawing cartoons.

His art is embedded throughout the text and gives the reader an inside look at Jordan’s thoughts on well just about everything.
