When you’ve waged war as long as Andy and her squad, you’ve gotten your hands more than bloody.

Shuzo Oshimi: The Flowers of Evil – Complete 1
The first combined edition of The Flowers of Evil features volumes 1-3 of this best-selling and acclaimed series.
It follows the adventures of a lonely bookish teen struggling to find his identity through Baudelaire’s poetry, until two girls–a beauty and a bully–help him find true love and friendship.
Edgy, intense, and romantic, this new edition will give fans a chance to reconnect with Kasuga, Saeki, and Nakamura as it explores the issues of bullying, loneliness, individuality, and identity.
“It is often darkly funny, with Oshimi delivering what would be ‘jokes’ in other manga with a straightforward sincerity that may or may not be deadpan. It’s an uncomfortable funny, akin to the funny parts in, say, David Lynch movies.”

Gigi D.G. & Paulina Ganucheau: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power 1 – The Legend of the Fire Princess
Don’t miss the first epic She-Ra and the Princesses of Power graphic novel, based on stories by showrunner Noelle Stevenson!
Even after everything that’s happened, the world outside the Horde’s walls is still a strange one to Adora.
Each day she’s learning more about her growing powers as She-Ra, including something new: the ability to heal corrupted runestones.
Runestones are the magical source from which princesses like Frosta, Mermista, and Perfuma draw their power, but Glimmer knows of another runestone — one with a dark past.
Long ago a fire princess ruled the lands to the west, until her thirst for power corrupted her, and led to the ruin of her kingdom.
Glimmer thinks the lost fire runestone could give the Rebellion an edge in the fight against the Horde, but claiming this ancient power won’t be easy… especially not when the Horde has their eyes set on the same prize.
Alison Bechdel: The Essential Dykes to Watch Out for
Settle in to this wittily illustrated soap opera (Bechdel calls it “half op-ed column and half endless serialized Victorian novel”) of the lives, loves, and politics of Mo, Lois, Sydney, Sparrow, Ginger, Stuart, Clarice, and the rest of the cast of cult-fav characters.
Most of them are lesbians, living in a midsize American city that may or may not be Minneapolis. Bechdel’s brilliantly imagined countercultural band of friends—academics, social workers, bookstore clerks—fall in and out of love, negotiate friendships, raise children, switch careers, and cope with aging parents.
Bechdel fuses high and low culture—from foreign policy to domestic routine, hot sex to postmodern theory—in a serial graphic narrative “suitable for humanists of all persuasions.”

This dark and complex tale, considered to be one of the best stories to ever come out of the Judge Dredd universe, has been contextualised with contemporarily thematic stories with re-coloured art by Watchmen’s John Higgins.
