Our Dreams at Dusk: Shimanami Tasogare Vol. 1 -- Yuhki Kamatani

Staff Pick

Drawn by a nonbinary comics artist, Our Dreams at Dusk tackles adolescence, sexuality and gender head-on. Featuring explosive visual metaphors and lovable (if sometimes frustrating) characters, this is one of my favorite comics to be published in the US this year. Recommended to fans of "On a Sunbeam"!

Tender - Sofia Samatar

Staff Pick

I'd been meaning to check out Samatar's writing for a while, but this short story collection caught me off guard in its amazing stylistic range and flexibility. Dancing between heartfelt character study and chilling horror, Calvino homage and badly written (on purpose!) personal essay, each entry challenges the convention of the form while subverting the reader's expectations.

Copra Round One -- Michel Fiffe

Staff Pick

Originally published independently by its author, Copra reads like Suicide Squad but looks like no other comic ever drawn. Newly republished by Image Comics, now is a better time than ever to begin reading this cult classic.
