17 Cozy And Creepy Graphic Novels Perfect To Read In The Fall

I have come to love graphic novels, and graphic novels that are great to read in the fall are my favorite kind! Think witches, ghosts, and mythical creatures as prepare to peruse the list.

I’ve read almost all of these and liked all the ones I read, but some stood out more than others like Mooncakes, Snapdragon, Paper Girls, and The Okay Witch.

The ones I haven’t read yet are on my TBR and hopefully, I’ll get to them this fall! If you decide to pick up any of these cozy, autumn graphic novels, let me know which ones and what you think after you read them!

This was a fun list to put together and has really gotten me in the fall mood, not that that’s hard to do. I’m always ready for fall and cozy/spooky books.

  • If you want to listen to some of these, consider trying Audible! You can get your first month free (one free book) plus tons of others they have for free.  Get that Audible deal here.
  • If you’re on more of a budget, try Scribd!  You can get your first month free there. You can read books and listen to audiobooks. It is unlimited (especially the reading) but if you listen to tons of new audiobooks you may be restricted after a few. I don’t listen to enough to confirm this, but I do use Scribd myself and like it a lot.
  • If you want to read more on your Kindle but don’t want to buy books, Kindle Unlimited is a wonderful option. It’s $9.99 a month but if you read a lot and like to read more than just new releases, it could be worth it. Get Kindle Unlimited here!
  • Get $5 off of $25 from BookOutlet! This is a great place to find new books for pretty cheap. They also have sales quite a bit, so keep an eye out for those. I tend to check here for books I want if they’re more expensive other places. They don’t have everything but they do have a lot. Get that deal here.
  • Thrift Books has become my go-to when I’m looking for a book and want it cheap. It’s great if you like buying used books. With this you can get a free book after spending $30!
  • Shop my book lists here! You can find every book list I have on Bookshop.org (except my monthly round-ups) and I add everything I can but they occasionally won’t have some. I do occasionally add extras though. If any lists are empty, they’ll be filled in shortly! Shop my bookshop.org book lists here.

Mooncakes

Nova is a teen witch that works at her grandmother’s bookshop, loaning out spell books and investigating supernatural occurrences in their town.

One night she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods and comes across her childhood friend, Tam, battling a demon in the woods as a werewolf.

Together, they take on the dark forces, rekindling their latent feelings.

This one is SO cute, you have to read it.

The Okay Witch

Moth loves all things witchy but is about to learn they’re not like they are in the movies. When some bullies try to ruin her Halloween, something strange happens. It turns out Moth’s family is at the center of some witchy drama that’s been in Founders Bluff for centuries.

I loved this one and think it’s the perfect fall graphic novel. I’ll have to read the second one this year.

Snapdragon

Rumor has it, Snap’s town has a witch. But Jacks is just a weird old lady that sells roadkill online.

Snap needs a favor from her and starts helping with the strange work when she realizes she may have real magic.

This one is so cute and the vibes of it are perfect for fall.

Anya’s Ghost

Of all the things Anya thought she would find at the bottom of a well, it wasn’t a new friend. Much less a ghost friend but a friend is just what she needs right now, or so she thinks.

The Witch Boy

Aster is 13 and part of a magical family where girls are raised to be witches and boys shapeshifters, but Aster wants to be a witch and still hasn’t shifted.

The other boys are being threatened by a mysterious danger and Aster knows he can help – as a witch. His new, non-magical friend Charlie will help give him the confidence to practice his new skills and truly be himself.

This whole series is really good and I would definitely recommend them all.

Seance Tea Party

Lora thinks growing up sounds terrible. As her friends start to fade away she is determined to still have fun on her own. A tea party with a twist leaves her with Alexa, a ghost that haunts her house and her former imaginary friend! They become best friends but not everything can last forever.

Pumpkinheads

I finally read this over the summer and wish I saved it for fall! It was really cute and I loved it.

Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends since they work together every fall in high school at the best pumpkin patch in the world. Everyone Halloween they say goodbye until September 1 next year.

But it’s their last year here as seniors in high school and it’s their last goodbye, too. Their last shift seems like it will be sad, but what if they made it the best ever and tried all the food, saw all the sights, and finally did something about that crush Josiah has had for three years.

Wytches

If you thought you knew everything about witches, you were wrong. They are much darker and much more horrifying. While the Rooks have moved to the remote town of Litchfield, New Hampshire to escape a haunting trauma and start over, something even more evil is waiting for them in the woods.

Harrow County

Emmy always knew ghosts and monsters prowled the woods near her house but on the night of her 18th birthday, she learns she’s connected to them in a way she never imagined.

I really liked this one and would definitely recommend reading it in the dark. It’s a great creepy graphic novel to read in autumn.

Paper Girls

Four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls in Cleveland, Ohio uncover the most important story of all time the morning after Halloween in 1988.

This the perfect fall graphic novel since it starts on Halloween!

Suee and the Shadow

Suee is twelve, wears her hair a certain way, and has no friends. When she starts school at Outskirts Elementary, she starts to hear a whispering in the exhibit room. The last thing she expected was to see her shadow come to life. Soon, weird things start to happen, like classmates turning zombie-like and her shadow starts to get stronger.

Through the Woods

This is a collection of five macabre illustrated tales. It’s not graphic or gory, but unsettling and creepy. Each story has it’s own creepy and unnerving plot that will leave you scared with a little suspense in the atmosphere.

Spell on Wheels

When a thief makes off with their things, three young witches set out on an east coast road trip to recover their possessions before any harm can come to–or from–their things.

One Year at Ellsmere 

Juniper expects a scholastic utopia when she gets a scholarship for Ellsmere Academy but its far from ideal. The queen bee is out to get here and there are rumors of a mythical beast roaming the forest near the school.

Witches of Brooklyn

Effie’s aunts are weird. And magical. Which makes Effie wonder if she can do magic, too. Her life takes a strange turn as she learns more about her family and finds friends who will do whatever they can to be there for her as her life gets more interesting. This is another great choice if you want a witchy graphic novel for fall.

Sheets

Marjorie, a thirteen-year-old, feels like a ghost as she runs the family laundry business. Wendell is a ghost who lost his life much too young.

Their worlds collide as Wendell turns the family laundromat into his midnight playground, appearing as a sheet during the day. As he tries to create a new afterlife for himself, he unknowingly sabotages the life Marjorie is struggling to maintain.

This one is so high on my graphic novel TBR and it sounds so perfect for fall!

Squad

The new girl can’t believe she is invited to join the school’s most popular clique. She also can’t believe their secret: they’re werewolves whose prey is boys who take advantage of unsuspecting girls. To fit in, she allows them to turn her into a werewolf but things start to go wrong as their pack begins to buckle under pressure. And to make things even muddier, Becca may have feelings for one of her new best friends.

I wouldn’t normally pick up a werewolf book, but this one sounds like an exception for me!

Have you read any of these autumnal graphic novels? Which ones? Any others I should check out?
