Few characters in comics are as beloved as Maggie and Hopey, the Latina punkettes introduced to readers in Love and Rockets No. 1 way back in 1982. Jaime Hernandez has revisited them many times since, expanding their universe to include a telenovela's worth of drama. They've been acquaintances, BFFs, lovers, estranged, friends again, and now middle-aged adults. Their relationship has been tested by time and circumstance and reading about it is one of the great pleasures life has to offer. This graphic novel reunites Maggie and Hopey at a reunion concert for the veterans of their punk scene. The beautiful black-and-white artwork crackles with emotional tension and swells with grace moments that beautifully encapsulate the complexities of existence. It's also very funny. Whether a newcomer to Maggie and Hopey's world or a fanboy/girl from way back, put this on your “must-read” list. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley

Once again, Lucy Knisley delivers a heartfelt, funny, and honest look at life as only she can. Fans of Knisley have followed her journey through motherhood across social media for a few years now, and the antics of her little bundle of joy "Pal". In Kid Gloves, Knisely shows the heartbreak that followed a miscarriage, her journey through self doubt, and anxiety over her preparedness for it all. Anyone who has had children can relate to all of these moments, and the endless joy and love that having a child brings. I love this book. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

McGuire uses time as a way to show one place in various eras, even eons. It is a graphic novel with few words that gives perspective on our place in the world and how place is shaped by the passing of time. ~ Reviewed by Percy Sutton


Box Brown in Conversation

Notes from the Shire by Chris L

 

I’ve been a huge fan of Box Brown’s work for quite a few years now. His graphic novels, illustrated with his trademark cartoon style, always seem to appeal to my exact niche interests. Pro wrestling, videogames, stand up comedy, and more weave their way into and out of Brown’s work. I was lucky enough to recently talk with Box about his past, present, and future.
