If you've listened to the podcast and want to see our hapless heroes' hijinks in a new format, this is for you! If you've never heard of The Adventure Zone but love beautifully-drawn graphic novels and lighthearted high fantasy adventures, this is definitely for you! I don't think I've ever found another story that made me feel this purely, laughingly happy the whole time I was reading it.

Full disclosure, I was VERY into creepy and unsettling things as a child and the tragedy of the Donner party fell right into my wheelhouse. As an adult, this book was a fun mix of history and fiction all mixed with a deep feeling of disquiet that weighs on you throughout the entire book. It might not be the traditional Christmas ghost story, but it's still the perfect spooky winter read.

Elena Abbott must contend with racism, sexism, and occult horror while she chases down a serial killer the police aren't pursuing. Only she can stop the murderer, but that's provided she survives. Beautiful art, superb storytelling, and fantastic characters. I had no idea how much I needed this comic until I picked it up.

Filled with fun facts about juvenile animals of all kinds! The drawings that accompany each fact are adorable and peppered with the author's poignant (and slightly painful) jokes. I had a tough time putting it down. Informational, cute, and great for cracking a smile and unleashing an "awwww" or two.

Noma Guide to Fermentation

 

One of the world’s greatest restaurants lets you in on its secret ingredients. With a little patient diligence any home chef can use fermentation to vastly expand the flavors they can create. I’ve already made two batches of lacto-tomatoes (my gazpacho will never be the same!). For the foodie, the scientist, and the home cook looking to take a big step forward.
