MAO: Volume 1 by Rumiko Takahashi

The legendary creator of Inuyasha and Ranma ½ brings a new series with mystery and a gothic sensibility that surprises and intrigues. Nanoka is an average teen with a tragic past who stumbles through a mysterious arch that leads to 1920’s Japan, where demons roam and where one day Nanoka meets a salty young man named Mao, who complicates everything she knows to be true. Takahashi mixes her elements effortlessly in this fun and funny, creepy and fascinating comic you won’t want to miss. —Jax

Lore Olympus: Volume One by Rachel Smythe

Lore Olympus started out as a webcomic in March of 2018 and became a wildly big hit. As a fan both of comics and of ancient Greek mythology, I’m honestly astonished it took me this long to find this beautiful book. Smythe has taken a story older than some civilizations and given it bright, modern life with pops of color and all the family drama the mythological Olympus is known for. Content warning: Lore Olympus features a brief rape scene and has themes of child abuse. —Jae

The Times I Knew I Was Gay by Eleanor Crewes

There are often early moments of approaching self-realization for a queer person, like becoming deeply attached to a queer-coded character without yet understanding why. In her memoir, Crewes explores these discoveries with candor through her inviting pencil illustrations. The Times I Knew I Was Gay is a beautiful story where coming out is neither the beginning nor the end but simply part of life’s journey. For those who love Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home, Kabul Nagata’s My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness, or Tillie Walden’s Spinning. —Molly S.

Far Sector by N.K. Jemisin & Jamal Campbell

N.K. Jemisin’s sci-fi murder mystery combines some of the best elements of noir, space opera, and cyberpunk, within a fascinating world beautifully rendered by Jamal Campbell. Accessible to anyone regardless of comic book familiarity, Far Sector is engrossing and transportive, with just the right amount of real-world reflection. Having raced through to the satisfying ending, I hope DC does more with Sojourner “Jo” Mullein and the City Enduring, and I can’t wait for Jemisin’s next foray into graphic storytelling.  —Jocelyn
