Ducks by Kate Beaton

Kate Beaton is one of my favorite comic artists of all time, and I am so pleased that she is back with a new book! Ducks is very different from her other work, although it has her characteristic playfulness and wry wit; it’s a quiet, autobiographical story, full of introspection and deep yearning for home. Ducks is a great graphic novel for both her die-hard fans and for those who are looking for some serious, good storytelling.

The Night Eaters: She Eats the Night (The Night Eaters Book #1) by Marjorie Liu, Illustrated by Sana Takeda

Lush illustrations meet masterful storytelling in this horror graphic novel by Marjorie Liu (winner of the Eisner and Hugo awards), working here as part of a power duo with artist Sana Takeda. Luckily, She Eats the Night is the first in a trilogy; I don’t think I could have lived without more of this story about twins Milly and Billy, who struggle to keep their restaurant afloat—and face a night of horrors beyond their imagination. I could spend hours admiring the colors that bring this story to life.

Sensory: Life on the Spectrum by Rebecca Ollerton

As an Autistic comics fan, I could not be more excited for this anthology of comics from Autistic artists and authors. Through an eclectic and engaging array of styles, this collection explores many aspects of Autistic life, from diagnostic journeys to sensory overload to racism in the psychiatric field. Sensory includes tips from fellow Autistic people and visualizations of the experiences of Autism. It is a valuable tool for both Autistic and Allistic readers.
