Publisher Weekly Names 10 Best Graphic Memoirs

Mimi Pond is an America writer and illustrator and the recipient of the Graphic Literature Outsanding Body of work from the PEN Center USA for her 2014 graphic novel Over Easy. Following her latest work, The Customer Is Always Wrong - the sequel to Over Easy - Pond has compiled a list of her personal top 10 best graphic memoirs for everyone's collection.

In her round up she says, "I loved children’s books and I often wondered why, when you became an adult, they made you give up the pictures... I always wanted more pictures. You had to know where to look, though. I have been looking all my life for those stories, told the way I thought they should be told, drawn in ways that thrilled me to my marrow."

In graphic memoirs, Pond has found the literary complexity she longed for while not giving up her love for illustrations. Check out her top ten list below!
