Chainsaw Man Vol. 1, by Tatsuki Fujimoto

Staff Pick

Denji wants two things: a decent meal, and to sleep with someone before he dies. Now that he's become a monstrous fiend under the ward of the state, these two goals are finally within his grasp! But his job is a dangerous one, his coworkers are either obsessed or insane, and the boss he's crushing on has other plans for him.  Chainsaw Man is the deconstructed sushi roll of Japanese action comics: crude, bizarre, yet imbued with a certain flavor that sets it apart. If you're a twenty-something former Naruto fan with depression, this is the series for you.

By Force Alone, by Lavie Tidhar

Staff Pick

Anyone can write a dark take on the King Arthur mythos, but only

Lavie Tidhar would do so while including legendary martial artist

Lancelot, a Holy Grail sequence that riffs on STALKER, and a vision of

kingship that's less noblesse oblige than perpetual grifting. The result

is a resolutely 2020 version of well-trodden territory: a cold-eyed

assessment of the realities of power that is nevertheless a lot of fun

to read.
