Ghost writer turned famous author, Colette was subversive for her time, throwing off her husband, choosing her own lovers, both men and women, and living her life as it best pleased her. Goetzinger paints her as a force of beauty, leading the way off the beaten path. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

In a collection of woke vignettes, Passmore covers topics ranging from the debate over Confederate monuments to the proper and preferred use of pronouns in this day and age. Most wonderfully, the title piece is a graphic depiction of only just some of the dumb things white people do and say. Passmore gets his point across with style and humor. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

Absolutely amazing! I love this whole series and have so much fin reading them. The Comic Books Stories of Baseball, Video Games, and Comics have already been told, and now its time for the men and women of the squared circle to get in on the action. This wonderfully illustrated book follows the sport's carnival beginnings, all the way to its modern form as a TV juggernaut. WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

This bizarro take on Garfield shows what life would be like if humans and cats switched places on society. Humans (seemingly all male here) are lazy, grumpy, shouting little nuisances, and cats are stuck at dead-end jobs in cubicles. After Manfried escapes his slacker-owners window, he goes off on his own adventure, full of oncoming traffic and cat fight clubs. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Two uniquely American creations; baseball and comics, come together to bring life to the long and storied history of America's pastime. Fantastic illustrations trace the path of baseball from it's murky beginnings (NOT in Cooperstown, NY) all the way to the sport's modern era and star players.
This is a wonderful companion for fans of Ken Burns' legendary PBS series. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Dostoyevsky's titanic struggle to find understanding in a barbarous world finds expression in Konstaninov's chaotic, yet controlled, images and words. Dostoyevsky's life and work jostle on each page, revealing a fearless artist who never abandoned his search for sanity and sanctity. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
