The Books of Magic

Author: Neil Gaiman

First line: "I don't want anything to do with it."

Why you should read this book: Young Timothy Hunter is on the cusp of the most important decision of his life, whether or not to study ars magica and become the greatest magician of his generation. With pretty much every mystical character in the DC Universe popping up to offer help or menace, Tim journeys through worlds to learn the costs and benefits of the practice. Kind of a dense work for a graphic novel, packed with equal parts information and action.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You've got the complete run of Promethea lined up on your bed table.
