Star Wars, Volume 1 by Jason Aaron

Star Wars revolutionized science fiction, so it’s no wonder people continually return to its mythos. This Star Wars comic fills in missing scenes from the original trilogy. I loved dropping back in with Leia, Luke, and Han. They’re on a mission to cripple the Empire, but were not expecting to be in Darth Vader’s path long before Luke was ready to face him. The artwork and writing perfectly characterize our old friends, paying homage to the original stylizing with a modern sleekness.  --Ivy

Jessica Jones: Alias by Marvel Comics

Jessica Jones was once known as Jewel—but now she’s just a private eye (if one with unusual access to the world of the suited super-heroes.)  Sarcastic, bitter, sassy, and smart, Jessica will go to extreme lengths to pretend she doesn’t have a good heart, while protecting those who normally protect. Finally back in print, in time for a new Netflix series, Jessica Jones proves that the best heroes are ones that are human first.  --Jocelyn

Over Easy by Mimi Pond

Sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll, and an endearing helping of awkward combine in this excellent memoir. It’s the late 70’s, and Madge, who is determined to get cool and get laid, lands a job at the totally hip Imperial Cafe in Oakland. What follows are the often bizarre stories of her co-workers, the regulars and everyone in between, all woven around her journey through adulthood.

Velvet by Ed Brubaker

1973. The Cold War. Velvet Templeton is secretary to the director of MI6, always with a smile (and sometimes more) for the agents passing her desk. None of them suspect the classified, deadly skills she's kept retired for years—until a former lover is killed under suspicious circumstances, and Velvet finds herself framed as a double agent.

Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky

Admit it: you're intrigued. Follow that impulse. Because not only is this book funny, fun, and, yes, sexy, it gives you a story original and yet wholly familiar. In spite of the unlikeliest of (spoiler alert!) superpowers, real people battle that greatest terror of thinking we are strange and alone, and the most painful hope when we find someone who makes us think maybe we aren't.

Alex & Ada by Jonathan Luna

Alex is lonely, still recovering from a recent breakup. He misses that human connection, but it’s hard to meet new people. I’ve been obsessed with stories about A.I. lately, and boy does this one ever hit the spot. It's full of thought provoking ideas, excellent characters, compelling questions about humanity, and what it means to have the power bestow that humanity.

The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage by Sydney Padua

Do you like science? Or historical figures, like Charles Babbage (father of the computer) or Ada Lovelace (mother of computer coding)? What if those same historical figures were reimagined as crime fighters in steampunk London? Then, friend, you would have found that truly magical thing you didn’t know you were looking for: The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage. Hilarious, witty, and imaginative: You can’t miss this!

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

If you are at all a fan of graphic novels, or memoirs, or really excellent and honest writing, you need to check out this book. Marjane recounts her life growing up in Iran during the Islamic revolution, while being insightful, funny and heartfelt. The art is simple but evocative, and flows naturally with her writing style. I cannot recommend it enough!

Just the Tips by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky

Sex is awesome, but let’s be honest, it can also be really awkward. In my (and Matt Fraction’s) opinion, a lot of the awkward comes from an unwillingness to talk about and yes, laugh about sex and all the weird awkward things that come along with it. So take a moment to laugh with this little book, and remember that anything worth doing should be fun as well.
