Giant Days has been one of my favorite comic discoveries of the last couple years and now that the creative team is back for this spin-off I can stop crying (/cry less) about it ending. Wicked Things has all the same trademark wit and aesthetic BUT WITH MORE TEEN DETECTIVES. Sold.

Smith's How The Word Is Passed is flying off the shelves, so why not complement it with his debut poetry collection? Counting Descent feels like canon to me and I'm thrilled to see it reprinted. Come find me after you've processed Clint's instructions for cardboard boxes, I'm still recovering.

$27.00

Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Random House - March 30th, 2021

Another absolutely essential read from Hanif Abdurraqib! Like They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us, this is a keen insight into pop culture that is part history, part memoir, but with a tighter focus, one that celebrates Black performance. As always, Hanif puts on a master class on empathy, something we could all use more of.
