Graphic Novels Reading Challenge 2010

I don't know if I've mentioned before, but one of the first signs I had that my BF was "the one" is his abiding love of fantasy novels. His favorite author list often overlaps mine. What I found out not much later is that he's an even bigger comic/graphic novel fan (you have to see his collection to believe it). I know his taste is impeccable, and I've been meaning to read more of the graphic novels he's been trying to press on me for years now. (I've at least managed to get all the way through Sandman. I'd have been a tasteless idiot not to devour that as quickly as possible.) So, in his honor, I'm going to participate in the Graphic Novel Challenge this year.

I'm going to aim for the Intermediate level, which is 3-10 books over the year. Based on my To Read list from LibraryThing, and knowing I've started and not finished a few series along the way, I know I'd like to read the following:

The next Lucifer book I need to read
The next Fables book I need to read
Runaways, Vol 1. - Brian K. Vaughn
Astonishing X-Men, Vol 1.: Gifted - Joss Whedon
Astro City: Life in the Big City - Kurt Busiek
Girl Genius, Vol 1. - Phil Foglio
