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

Published: Harry N. Abrams - October 8th, 2019

Erin Williams commutes by train from upstate New York into the city for her day job. Along the way, the glances of the men she moves through provide the impetus for this searing examination of how the patriarchy reduces women to nothing. Her memories of alcoholism and rape make this more than a feminist screed. They lay bare how a masculine society exploits women for their own interests. A graphic Between the World and Me, Commute will leave the reader shaken regardless of gender—and reading long past their stop. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley
