- Nimona, by Noelle Stevenson – Even though it’s not a new graphic novel, I have to mention it, because it is just that awesome. Shapeshifters, weird -technology AND an evil genius who might not be that evil? Yeah. If you haven’t already, just go and buy it. Read it and then read it again.
- Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride, by Lucy Knisley – I’ve read ALL of Lucy Knisley’s graphic novels so far and this one is equally fantastic. With her sharp wit and funny, relatable stories about getting married, I loved dipping back into Lucy’s continued saga once again.
- Rolling Blackouts: Dispatches from Turkey, Syria and Iraq, by Sarah Glidden – I picked this book up because of the art on the cover, but I fell in love with the beautiful artwork. This book showed me so many different perspectives; through the narrative it feels like Sarah Glidden takes you along on her adventure.
- In Real Life, by Cory Doctorow – As a sci-fi fan, I was drawn into the engrossing online world of Coarsegold Online, but I was fascinated by the way that Cory Doctorow examines not only adolescence, but also poverty and culture-clash.
- Lumberjanes, by Grace Ellis & Noelle Stevenson – Hardcore lady-types rejoice! This series is a fun, fantastical and perfect reading material for anyone who likes strong-female-oriented narratives that involve all manners of supernatural coolness.
- ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times, by Andrew MacLean– As we follow Aria and her cat Jelly Bean through the apocalyptic landscape, we discover that Aria is on a mission. This fast-paced adventure has it all: sci-fi awesomeness, creepy aliens and some seriously action-packed scenes.
- Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat!, by Kate Leth – a fun, fast-paced story that is equal parts witty and thought-provoking, I couldn’t put it down. Sure, Patsy may have (literally) escaped Hell, but now she’s just trying to be normal in New York City. Naturally, hilarity ensues.
- SuperMutant Magic Academy, by Jillian Tamaki – set in an academy for SuperMutants, there are science experiments gone awry, a new kid who is also a fortune telling cat and a plethora of zany antics that still feel so true to the high school experience. Funny, poignant and beautifully illustrated, this is a great book to pick up if you love all things weird and wonderful.
