Luckily for the possess-y, she's got a best friend who knows something is up, and won't stop until someone's head spins around. - J Gallo

Drawing Down the Moon by Margot Adler

This is a classic of the modern Witchcraft movement. Adler takes a close look at the religions and spiritual movements of those outside of the norm of organized religion, shedding some light on an otherwise oft-misunderstood demographic of the country. This is perfect for anyone curious about the swiftly growing movement of contemporary witches and pagans. - J Gallo

Shuri The Search for Black Panther

As the younger female sibling of the heir to the throne of Wakanda, Shuri has always lived in her brother’s shadow. But when T’Challa gets lost on a space mission, Shuri’s life gets complicated. She’s much more at home in her lab, but her brother’s absence pulls her out of her comfort zone and into the swirling miasma of African politics and Wakandan tradition. Nnedi Okorafor masterfully navigates Shuri through gender politics, sibling dynamics, and the role of modern monarchies. Leonardo Romero’s art is reminiscent of the bright colors of 1980s comics, with a sketchy, expressive style. Wakanda feels real, as do the struggles and triumphs of its people. - J

Sissy by Jacob Tobia

Non-binary (NB), gender queer, and gender fluid folks have long been left behind as the queer community has grown louder. Here, shouting at the top of their fabulous lungs, comes Jacob Tobia. Their story is one that many other NB folks have had, and one that needs to be heard just as badly as any other queer experience. No journey of self-discovery is an easy road, but Tobia manages to shepherd us through their ups and downs with immense narrative grace. This book belongs in every queer studies course, and I hope it inspires other NB folks to tell their stories. - J

Space Battle Lunchtime by Natalie Riess

Part cooking show, part alien abduction story, all adorable. Riess takes 2 storylines that have been done to death and smashes them together to bring new life to them both. The art is colorful and charming without being garish, and each character (human and not) are interesting and exciting. A great read for all ages! - J

The League of Regrettable Superheroes by Jon Morris

This book is a hoot and a half. Not all superheroes make it to the big screen and win the day; some of them fade into obscurity for a reason. Collected here is a selection of comic book history's worst (best?) goofs. Meet Bee Man, the Clown, the Eye, Lady Satan, Kangaroo Man, and more. - J

The Secret Loves of Geek Girls ed. by Hope Nicholson

Having backed the original Kickstarter for this book, I was thrilled to hear it was being released by Dark Horse. It's full of stories of joy and heartbreak and fandom and the intersection of the 3. Growing up as a geek girl is hard, it's good to hear stories from people who experienced life and love as a geek AND a girl. - J

The League of Regrettable Sidekicks by Jan Morris

This book is a hoot and a half. Not all superheroes make it to the big screen and win the day; some of them fade into obscurity for a reason, taking their goofy, clumsy, badly named sidekicks with them. Collected here is a selection of comic book history's worst (best?) goofs. Meet Stampy, Fatman, Kid Tyrant, Peep, and Frobisher. - J
