The Cybils (the Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards) is currently open for nominations.  They really, really need graphic novel nominations and I was looking for ideas.  It needs to be a graphic novel for children or teens, and it needs to have been published between  October 16th 2009 and October 15th 2010.

Anyone have any suggestions for me? 

If you'd like to nominate something yourself, you can find the nomination form here: Link

I haven't read any of these new ones yet, so cannot yet make recommendations, but maybe someone else has and they are good candidates for nomination?
