THE rise of the comic book hero in the cinema has seen an increase in people wanting to read more graphic novel adventures.

If you're looking for a new tale to enthral someone with this Christmas, here's just a few you should consider...

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore WE'VE all seen the awful movie, but don't let that put you off this fantastical adventure from the pen of comic writer Alan Moore.

Legendary literary figures come together to form a sort of Victorian Avengers to take on what could just be the devil himself.

The Sandman by Neil Gaiman A TALE that takes in ancient mythology, fairytales and folklore - Sandman is one of Gaiman's masterpieces.

One of only a few graphic novels to have featured on the New York Times best seller list, it is a haunting story which you'll want to explore further.

300 by Frank Miller AGAIN, you've probably seen the movie - but the graphic novel adds so much more to the legend of King Leonidias and his brave Spartans. This epic retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae is oozing with colour, action and emotion.

Scott Pilgrim vs The World by Bryan Lee O'Malley ANOTHER series adapted for the big screen, but this is also a perfect starting point for someone wanting to get into reading graphic novels.

Bright, bold and fun, Scott Pilgrim is packed with witty storylines and great characters to fall in love with.

Go colourful with new issues, or stay old school with the black and white editions, either way it's a great introduction to Scott's mad-cap
