If reading the book before watching the movie/TV show is your thing, you'll definitely want to check this out as the upcoming Netflix series is set to come out next year. Beyond that, Sandman is an incredible episodic story of Dream, one of the "endless" as he navigates everything from a quest to the underworld to a centuries-long friendship with a man he has made immortal. It's a sometimes funny, sometimes creepy, sometimes heartfelt, always wild story, and the art is rad. You should probably get it.

I read this comic in single magazine issues from Comicazi as it came out, and I'm so excited that it's collected and I can finally share it with everyone. NK Jemisin comics writing is as brilliant as her prose, and Jamal Campbell's art is stunning. Far Sector is a poignant look at politics, police brutality, and the power and price of emotions. It may take place on a distant planet, but the story still hits close to home.

The Arrival is great for kids (and grown-ups!) whose favorite part of picture books is the illustrations. Packed with delightfully imaginative detail and a masterclass in visual storytelling, The Arrival is a bittersweet (but mostly sweet!) narrative of immigration, loneliness, and making a new home in an alien world.

Published: Fantagraphics - September 10th, 2019

This incredibly well researched graphic biography tells the story of my personal favorite painter, Artemisia Gentileschi. Siciliano doesn't shy away from the dark and often violent truth of Gentileschi's life as she went from her father's apprentice to a famous Renaissance painter in her own right. This book captures the humanity of such a great figure, while still giving us a view of the politics and hardships of the time --and an art lesson to round out the whole thing. Plus, just look at this cover, who wouldn't want to add such a beautiful book to their collection? CW: Sexual Assault

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.
