Review
An amazing graphic novel and its the greatest graphic novel ever made. A team of retired heroes are asked to come back into service when a close friend dies. It takes place in semi altered timeline during the 1980's and flashbacks during the 30's and 40's. Highly recommend to anyone. I would especially recommend this graphic novel to people bored of generic superhero stories and people who think comic books are childish.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers stone is the first book to the 7 book series. This book is when harry first goes to harry potter and what happens to him. Harry lives with his aunt and uncle because for all he knows his mother and father were killed in a car crash. Harry did not know about Hogwarts until letters started coming to the Dursleys house and he got one and read it. Harry was told that he would not be attending Hogwarts by the Dursleys. The letters kept on coming so the Dursleys and Harry left to where they thought no one would find them but they were wrong. They were in a cabin out on a lake one night when a big oaf broke through the door. This turned out to be the game keeper from Hogwarts whose name was Hagrid. Hagrid took Harry to hogwarts where Harry went to school. Through out the book Harry and his two friends Ron and Hermione went on many adventures but one night when they found a mirror and that will show your future. That mirror gets harry in to trouble with a stone call the "Sorcerers Stone".  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
