Rookie Yearbook Two

Rookie Yearbook Two
by Edited by Tavi Gevinson

It's finally here! If you thought the first Rookie Yearbook from D+Q was filled to bursting with amazing stuff, just wait 'til you see the sophomore edition. It features content from a lineup of contributors that is nothing short of stellar (including Judy Blume, Lena Dunham and Grimes just to name a few) as well as interviews with more A-listers than you can shake a stick at (Morrissey! Molly Ringwald! Emma Watson!) Plus, D+Q's own Sonja Ahlers did all of the awesome collages for each opening spread. As if that weren't enticing enough, there are also pages of stickers, games and your very own tarot-deck inside!

Woman Rebel

Woman Rebel
by Peter Bagge

Acclaimed cartoonist Peter Bagge's meticulously researched biography of pioneering birth control advocate Margaret Sanger provides readers with plenty of insight into the life and work of the controversial figure. Drawn in Bagge's unmistakeable style, the biography is consistently respectful of its subject, yet humorous throughout. The combination of Bradley-esque illustrations and historically accurate material is a winning one, to be sure.

Palookaville 21

Palookaville 21
by Seth

Oh boy, brand new work from Seth! This hardcover volume from D+Q is really a beauty, inside and out. The newest of Seth's autobiographical comics are here in all of their signature, bittersweet glory. In addition, for the first time ever, Seth has graced readers with copies of pages from the comic-diary he's been keeping for the last 10 years or so. Personal and poignant, you've got to get your hands on a copy.

Best American Comics 2013

Best American Comics 2013
Edited by Jeff Smith

This year's model of the ever-popular compilation of Best American Comics lives up to its moniker, as it's crammed with new work from some of the genre's heaviest hitters. Curated by Jeff Smith of Bone fame, the 2013 edition's table of contents pretty much reads like a who's-who of American cartoonists, including Alison Bechdel, Michael DeForge, Craig Thompson, Michael Kupperman, and D+Q alumni Kate Beaton, Vanessa Davis and Gabrielle Bell.

The Big Book of Anorak

The Big Book of Anorak
by Cathy Olmedillas

In honor of their seventh birthday, the folks at popular kids’ magazine publisher Anorak Press decided to put out a wonderful, 224-page hardcover collection aimed at kids 5 and up. Inside, you’ll find oodles of games, stories, recipes, illustrations, interviews and activities to delight kids and parents alike. An aesthetically pleasing, top-notch collection of fun stuff. Conveniently, seeing as kids can be a bit over-enthusiastic in their handling of books, The Big Book of Anorak is also sturdily bound so as to withstand plenty of action.
