Here are some funny graphic novels to kick off the week!

Elementary - When the Past is a Present (Amelia Rules! #4) by Jimmy Gownley
When her Aunt Tanner brings out a box of mementos, ten-year-old Amelia Louise McBride learns things about her family history that help her deal with such current issues as her first date and the deployment of a friend's father to Iraq.

High School - Mangaman by Barry Lyga
Ryoko, a character from the manga world, falls through a rip in pages into the real world, where he struggles to survive as an outsider in a typical American high school. Things like his chibi character, thought balloons, and motion lines make that difficult, especially after he meets and falls for Marissa Montaigne.
