An Embarrassment of Witches by Sophie Goldstein & Jenn Jordan

Life is hard enough after college, and living in a world filled with magic doesn’t make anything easier. In this very relatable graphic novel, Rory, after a rough breakup and a cancelled trip to save endangered dragons, has no idea what she wants out of life. Even her best friend, her new magic-studying housemate, and her familiar can’t save Rory from her own destructive behavior. The color palette is deceptively simple and lovely. I found myself pulled into the witchy drama despite myself.

Once & Future, Vol. 1 by Kieron Gillen, Illustrated by Dan Mora

With Once & Future, Kieron Gillen returns to one of his favorite themes: How do stories shape reality? Framed with Dan Mora’s bold, dark art, Gillen takes up the Arthurian cycle, ancient tales of family drama, nationalism, and magic, and slips under their patina of heroism and honor by creating a modern-day adventure of family drama, nationalism, and magic. A new series for those who enjoy monster hunting, quests, and turning the Western canon on its head.

Parasite: A Graphic Novel in Storyboards by Bong Joon Ho

While watching the Oscars, my mom told me not to scream if Parasite won Best Picture. So I just didn't breathe for about 30 seconds. Bong Joon Ho’s movie is a masterpiece of modern filmmaking and a potent, timely commentary on class warfare, no matter the geographic location. Bong mixes genres like a master chef creating a perfect dish, blending thriller, horror, and sociopolitical commentary. I’m so excited to get my hands on this glimpse into his creative process and to spend even more time yelling about this incredible film.

Making Comics by Lynda Barry

Do you remember the way you used to draw as a child? Most of us lose that as we grow older. Making Comics is a master class in the comic form. Barry, a powerhouse creator of strange and beautiful comic books, guides us through an intensive process to get the creative juices flowing and remind us of the courage we had as younglings. I was pleasantly surprised at my own daring as I worked my way through the book. - Ivy

Invisible Kingdom written by G. Willow Wilson illust. by Christian Ward

I’ve been a fan of G. Willow Wilson since the first Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel comics came out. Wilson is now blasting off into space, creating a world reminiscent of Saga, with intrigue, political chess games, and daring escapes across the galaxy. Christian Ward’s art is full of candy-jar colors, bringing this space epic to vibrating life. This is perfect for the comic book fan who wants to get into stories outside of the superhero genre. - J Gallo

Batwoman: Elegy by Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III

Former military cadet, survivor, and Don't Ask Don't Tell victim Kate Kane stalks a new criminal High Madame that could only have come out of Gotham in Elegy, one of the best superhero stories I've ever read. Greg Rucka's art is nothing short of beautiful, with breathtaking action sequences and humanizing flash backs, and Williams' story will keep you hooked. - Jocelyn

Hawkeye V1: My Life as a Weapon by Matt Fraction and David Aja

As someone who also gets hurt a lot, wears a lot of purple, and struggles with depression, I relate to Clint Barton very strongly. He's a regular guy (as regular as an ex-circus performer and Avenger can be) who gets thrown into really ridiculous situations. His hare-brained solutions will keep you hooked from page one. - 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
