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

The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui

Refugee stories are massively important right now. This graphic memoir explores connecting the past to the present and the long, intergenerational shadow it can throw. The Buis left the fallout of the Vietnam war, but never imagined the lasting impact such trauma would have on their life in America. Drawn in an intensely personal style, I couldn’t help but be pulled into their story. - Ivy

Seconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley

In your teens you’re becoming the person you’ll be. In your twenties you’re figuring out who you want to be. In your thirties, you start realizing you have to live with who you are and the choices you’ve made. This is a brilliant fable for that age when you know if you could go back with what you know now, you could live the life you were meant to live. - Jocelyn

Abbott by Saladin Ahmed

Cigarette smoke and shadows tie together this graphic fantasy from acclaimed novelist Saladin Ahmed and artist Sami Kavela. Journalist Elena Abbott, armed with a camera and the truth, finds herself pitted not only against the injustice and police brutality of 1970’s Detroit, but also against a dark magic that is haunting her past and home. A winning cast and a noir story with a funky backbeat. - Jocelyn

Belonging by Nora Krug

Krug’s graphic memoir packs a powerful historical punch. As a German born two generations after the Holocaust, she struggles with her country’s atrocious past and the ambiguity of her family’s own involvement. Through vivid text and graphics, historical photos and documents, layering memory and story with poignancy, she seeks the truth and delves deep into her family’s history. Krug does the hard work to bring the personal past back to life and ask how one shapes one’s identity and finds one’s sense of home in its midst. Beautifully done in every way. - Melinda

Home After Dark by David Small

Home After Dark follows a boy through the harsh experiences of an unstable life. Its simple yet exacting art style and the writing of its characters are of equal quality in this fictional follow-up to Small’s critically acclaimed memoir Stitches. Home After Dark has received starred reviews from Booklist, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and Library Journal. Booklist says, “Small turns a deeply focused lens onto the isolation, loneliness, and relentless cruelty of male adolescence in this immensely powerful new work. Spare and powerful, this is not to be missed." - Ian

Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts by Anthony Bourdain & Joel Rose

One thing I loved about Anthony Bourdain was his ability to cross social and cultural boundaries while still respecting all involved, and this collection of his four graphic novels is no exception. The anthology is like a restaurant kitchen, buzzing with curse words and exhaustion, a round of storytelling following a luxurious meal. But these are ghost stories, and not for the faint of heart. The artwork in Hungry Ghosts is gorgeous and horrifying and the recipes look delectable, but I think my favorite part is that I could hear Bourdain’s voice when reading it. The dialogue, the mannerisms—Anthony Bourdain, through and through. - Rachel
