A Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill

Strap in, kids, this one is a wild ride. With a slow-burn horror, Lovecraftian beginning, you won't be able to put this one down. Part family drama, part spine tingling spookiness, the Turner family and their woes will make any horror fan happy. Cosmology is perfect for anyone who has read through all of Stephen King’s back catalog and is itching for more. - J Gallo

Grease Bats by Archie Bongiovanni

I’m a big fan of Archie Bongiovanni’s work, especially their short and sweet A Quick and Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns. Bongiovanni’s art is spunky and cute, and they’ve got a great sense of humor. This collection will resonate really well with my generation of 20-something queer disasters (of which I am a proud member). Gift it to your friend who just came out, who’s been out and proud as long as you’ve known them, or anyone under the LGBTQIA+ rainbow who needs a good laugh about the dating scene. - J Gallo

The Conscious Closet by Elizabeth L. Cline

Let your closet do some good, and pay attention to where your donated clothes are going. The Conscious Closet will give you techniques to green-ify your wardrobe, and Fashionopolis takes an unflinching look at the fast-fashion industry and its impact on the world. Either one of these books would be great for environmentally conscious folks wanting to bring their Earth-friendly values into more of their lives. - 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
