Spanish Graphic Novels

Thanks to everyone who recently entered our Spanish Graphic Novel raffle. The winners have been chosen. Check below to see if you are a winner. We will also tell you how you can add more graphic novels to your classroom library.

If you didn’t win, but still want some Graphic Novels readers for your classroom, you can purchase your own. I found a series of Graphic Novels at bookstores while traveling in Colombia. They aren’t the easiest to find, but your may be in luck. These graphic novels are  adaptations of classics such as Robinson Crusoe, War of the Worlds,

1) Check your local library! If your local library has a Spanish section, start there. I recently find new materials at my library and among them were these graphic readers.

2) Amazon: We’ve found the following also available on sale. (Disclosure: these are amazon affiliate links)

  1. Cenicienta: La Novela Gráfica
  2. Hansel y Greta
  3. La Bella y la Bestia
  4. Rumpelstiltskin
  5. Caperucita Roja

These books are from Latin Books, but while they list their books online, they don’t appear to sell them.

3) I also found some Lego Stories Spanish Editions such as Superman y Batman and Star Wars

    I’m so excited! Oh wow…thank you so much!!!!

  2. @Spanishplans – I know you mentioned here that the materials you found in Colombia were adaptations of already existing novels. Did you find anything written by Colombians? Are there any authors in the Spanish-speaking world writing graphic novels or teenage literature? I’m under the impression that that’s not happening a lot, but I could be wrong.

      The unfortunate thing is that books are so expensive in Colombia. It is very hard just to come across a book store even in a large city like Medellin. Most of the the comic books that are sold are in English. In terms of teenage magazines, I’ve found Revista Tu (http://revistatu.com.co/) to be about the only magazine targeting teenage (girls). The only othing thing readily available is Condorito comics.
      There was one book store that did have young adult books, but again, they were expensive, and they shrinkwrap the books so you can’t look at them.
