When most people think of Graphic Novels and Trade Paper Backs, they don't think of 1st appearances. You may be surprised to find out that quite a few 1st appearances have happened in a new Graphic Novel or Trade Paperback.

Check out the list below and I bet you will find a few pleasant surprises. Just be sure this is a true first appearance and not a reprint of the comicbook where a character first appeared. We've done our best to filter out the reprints, but if you have any questions, just leave a comment below and we will dig into it.
