12th Annual Graphic Novels and Manga Reading Challenge

This challenge is at its Facebook group once again. I will try to get at least 12, the most number of graphic novels I seem to get to each year.

The Graphic Novels and Manga reading Challenge is now in its 12th year and sign-ups are open!
Write a sign-up post on your blog, goodreads, facebook, etc and link to it here.
What counts: graphic novels, collected trade editions, manga, comic strip collections, comic books or combinations of text and bubbles all in the same book. In print or digital. Anything else you feel is suitable. 
My personal criteria are if it has either frames OR speech bubbles it counts. I also feel many picture books and zines fall under this criteria as well. I'm not going to be the comic police but if you are unsure, just ask.
You must write a review and link to it for it to count towards the challenge. Reviews may be posted on your blog or goodreads or similar places. Several reviews may be gathered and posted in one link on your blog, but each book must be reviewed individually and linked here to count. Do not post your actual review here on the group.
Here is how the Challenge plays out:

Modern Age: read and review 12 books during the year (that's only 1 book a month)
