“What do we do when our hearts hurt? We wrap them in friendship, shared tears and time, till they wake hopeful and happy again.”
A small, gorgeous treasure of an art book, scattered with meaningful messages of love, friendship, and a reminder to be kind to one another. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

I was blown away by this gorgeous gripping graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Newbery and Carnegie-winning The Graveyard Book, which I’d somehow never read. With each chapter drawn by a different artist, this single volume edition adapted by Harvey and Eisner winning P. Craig Russell works as a unified whole with an aesthetic reminiscent of vintage Sandman. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood

A sweet, tender manga about a hard of hearing young man, and the friend that helps him break out of his shell. It is both meaningful and beautiful and definitely worth the read. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

Published: Random House - October 1st, 2019

A dark, absurdist, hilariously irreverent take on the apocalypse and death, told in sticky note sketches. I first discovered Hertzfeldt’s distinctive stick figure style via Youtube over a decade ago in an animated video called “Rejected,” a series of increasingly existential rejected ads that earned Hertzfeldt an Oscar nomination (seriously, look it up). In book form, his mutant imagination channels Gary Larson, Randall Munroe, and Edward Gorey alike. A perfect gift for black sheep and weirdos. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau

Mooncakes follows two main characters, a witch who wears hearing aids, and a non-binary werewolf, as they fight to protect their town from an evil demon. If you’re looking for a fun graphic novel with amazing artwork and great representation, this is the one for you. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn
