This graphic memoir about Laura Gao's experience as a queer immigrant from Wuhan to Texas is great — funny, infuriating, and heart wrenching in turns, with a really smart and compelling approach to rendering bilingual conversation. Throw in Laura Gao and Weiwei Xu's expressive lines, gorgeous palettes, and energetic composition, and you've got a really lovely comic!
