This beautiful, literary manga is a medical thriller involving a love triangle, illness and lies.
Cinema Sewer #25
by Robin Bougie
One of the things I always get excited for early in the new year is a new issue of Cinema Sewer - the most compulsively readable zine on sleaze cinema out there (it may also have the added advantage of being the only one). This issue has Nazisploitation, daredevil documentaries of the 1970s, and more!
Nature of the Beast: A Graphic Novel
by Adam Mansbach / Douglas McGowan / Owen Brozman
It's a graphic novel from the writer of the phenomenon that is Go The F*ck To Sleep. It's all religious extremist aliens, holy war, annihilation, and a gator wrestler from the Florida swamps who may be Earth's only hope.
