As Nick and Charlie’s feelings get more serious, they’ll need each other more than ever.

Alison Bechdel: The Secret to Superhuman Strength

From the author of Fun Home, a profoundly affecting graphic memoir of Bechdel’s lifelong love affair with exercise, set against a hilarious chronicle of fitness fads in our times.

Comics and cultural superstar Alison Bechdel delivers a deeply layered story of her fascination, from childhood to adulthood, with every fitness craze to come down the pike: from Jack LaLanne in the 60s (“Outlandish jumpsuit! Cantaloupe-sized guns!”) to the existential oddness of present-day spin class.

Readers will see their athletic or semi-active pasts flash before their eyes through an ever-evolving panoply of running shoes, bicycles, skis, and sundry other gear.
But the more Bechdel tries to improve herself, the more her self appears to be the thing in her way.

She turns for enlightenment to Eastern philosophers and literary figures, including Beat writer Jack Kerouac, whose search for self-transcendence in the great outdoors appears in moving conversation with the author’s own.
This gifted artist and not-getting-any-younger exerciser comes to a soulful conclusion.

The secret to superhuman strength lies not in six-pack abs, but in something much less clearly defined: facing her own non-transcendent but all-important interdependence with others.

A heartrendingly comic chronicle for our times.

Elizabeth Holleville: Summer Spirit

Louise spends every summer at her grandmother’s house with her older sister and their cousins.

But this summer, Louise realises her relatives are fast growing up, without her. While they’re concerned with boy drama, Louise is suddenly left alone.

But then one day she meets Lisa, who will never, ever become a teenager…

Douglas Rushkoff & Michael Avon Oeming: Aleister & Adolf

Media theorist and documentarian Douglas Rushkoff weaves a mind-bending tale of iconography and mysticism against the backdrop of a battle-torn Europe.

In a story spanning generations, and featuring some of the most notable and notorious idealists of the 20th century, legendary occultist Aleister Crowley develops a powerful and dangerous new weapon to defend the world against Adolf Hitler’s own war machine spawning an unconventional new form of warfare that is fought not with steel, but with symbols and ideas.

Unfortunately, these intangible arsenals are much more insidious and perhaps much more dangerous than their creators could have ever conceived.

Foreword by Grant Morrison!

Bill Willingham: Fables Compendium Two

Once upon a time, the subjects of fairy tales–princesses, witches, talking animals, and more–lived far away in a fabled magical realm.

But when a savage creature known only as the Adversary conquered their home, the characters of folklore were forced to flee to a more mundane world.
Disguised among the normal citizens of 21-st century New York City, these magical beings have created their own secret society within an exclusive luxury apartment building called Fabletown.

Now, after years in exile, the citizens of Fabletown are finally ready to reclaim their Homelands. The long-brewing war against the Adversary’s empire is here, but even if our heroes succeed…happily ever after never comes without a price.

Lee Lai: Stone Fruit

An exhilarating and tender debut graphic novel that is an ode to the love and connection shared among three women and the child they all adore.

Bron and Ray are a queer couple who enjoy their role as the fun weirdo aunties to Ray’s niece, six-year-old Nessie.

Their playdates are little oases of wildness, joy, and ease in all three of their lives, which ping-pong between familial tensions and deep-seeded personal stumbling blocks.
As their emotional intimacy erodes, Ray and Bron isolate from each other and attempt to repair their broken family ties ― Ray with her overworked, resentful single-mother sister and Bron with her religious teenage sister who doesn’t fully grasp the complexities of gender identity.

Taking a leap of faith, each opens up and learns they have more in common with their siblings than they ever knew.

At turns joyful and heartbreaking, Stone Fruit reveals through intimately naturalistic dialog and blue-hued watercolor how painful it can be to truly become vulnerable to your loved ones ― and how fulfilling it is to be finally understood for who you are. Lee Lai is one of the most exciting new voices to break into the comics medium and she has created one of the truly sophisticated graphic novel debuts in recent memory.

Bishakh Som: Apsara Engine

The eight delightfully eerie stories in Apsara Engine are a subtle intervention into everyday reality.

A woman drowns herself in a past affair, a tourist chases another guest into an unforeseen past, and a nonbinary academic researches postcolonial cartography.
Imagining diverse futures and rewriting old mythologies, these comics delve into strange architectures, fetishism, and heartbreak.

Painted in rich, sepia-toned watercolors, Apsara Engine is Bishakh Som’s highly anticipated debut work of fiction.

Richard Sala: Poison Flowers & Pandemonium

Just a couple of months before his tragic passing in March 2020, cartooning master of the macabre Richard Sala completed his final book ― or, actually, his final four books.

Poison Flowers and Pandemonium collects all four of these original graphic novellas in one beautiful hardcover worthy of Sala’s legacy.

First up in Poison Flowers is “House of the Blue Dwarf,” a 125-page thriller featuring master criminal the Bloody Cardinal, who leaves a wake of mayhem and madness everywhere he goes.
“Monsters Illustrated” is a fun, 64-page monster movie riff that showcases Sala’s visual imagination. A young woman in a dusty bookstore reads a strange bestiary — the “book within a book” showcases a series of Sala’s gorgeous watercolor and ink drawings. But when she gets to the end, she finds the bookseller drives a hard bargain.
“Cave Girls Of The Lost World” is a campy, 60-page romp about a team of young women whose plane crashes in a land forgotten by time and rife with dinosaurs, carnivorous plants, and apemen — but these intelligent, brave, and resourceful women are ready to rumble!
Rounding out the book is “The Amazing Adventures of Fantomina Fantomella,” a 45-page graphic novella of violence and non-stop action. Priest and his mob thought Fantomina was dead. So how is it that she’s come back with a vengeance?

Poison Flowers & Pandemonium is a perfect showcase of Sala’s gorgeous watercolor artwork and his love of B-movie horror, silent film-era archetypes, and femmes fatale.

Yes. Monsters.
They’re real and they’re hell bent on controlling the news and information consumed by humans. Everything we’ve ever been taught about monsters is a lie and Jerri’s only possible advisor is a senile male chauvinist.

It’s 1983 and the outlook for humanity is getting . . . gnarly and their only hope is an alcoholic, acerbic horror host from Missouri.
