The Daughters of Ys Written by M.T. Anderson Illustrated by Jo Rioux

The Daughters of Ys is a modern reimagining of an ancient Breton legend about a wealthy city sunk into the sea by magic and vice. Jo Rioux’s dreamy palette and illustrations have, like M.T. Anderson’s story, a deceptive simplicity that pulls you deeper into the complex currents of duty and desire, love and loyalty, loss and responsibility, and family and nation, amidst a tale of dark magics and miracles. The depths of this may haunt you...but in the best way. — Jocelyn

The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel

What an absolute treat! I was so excited to finally read Bechdel’s seminal work, and even more surprised by how relevant and relatable it is still. I adore the lovably neurotic Mo, who is as concerned by the state of the world in the 1980s as we are now, and the hilarious and diverse cast of her friends. If you’re a fan of Dykes to Watch Out For or are perhaps looking for a supportive and affirming group of queers, you need this collection in your life. — Jax

The Contradictions by Sophie Yanow

It feels like every college student is trying to find themself and often it’s the failures that become the most meaningful. With Yanow’s expert eye and bold art style, The Contradictions explores the world of the college student trying to find themself and finding that their failures end up being the most meaningful part of their journey. While studying abroad, Sophie falls into a group of anarchists and sees firsthand the struggle and contradictions not just of her new friends but of herself. Yanow has managed to tap into the psyche of youth and come out with some profound insights into the human condition.  — Ivy

Welcome to the New World Written by Jake Halpern Illustrated by Michael Sloan

My favorite thing about graphic novels is how much they can convey within a frame, and in Welcome to the New World, I felt the poignancies, laughter, and desperate desire for home on every page. Meet the Aldabaans, a family fleeing war-torn Syria only to land in the US on the eve of the election in 2016. Now the rest of their family is left behind and the Aldabaans must assimilate and carve out a life as best as they can. A fascinating look at modern immigrant life that is both heartbreaking and uplifting. — Jax
