Forbidden Brides Of The Faceless Slaves In The Secret House Of The Night Of Dread Desire
by Neil Gaiman / Shane Oakley
Admittedly, Neil Gaiman isn't writing as many comics as he used to (or as many as his fans wish he would). Fortunately, he's cool with people adapting some of his prose into comics. Here, the result is this beautiful, dark and comical send up of gothic lit.
Mae Volume 1
by Gene Ha / various
Gene Ha delivers and intense, Through The Looking Glass, all-ages fantasy adventure.
by R. Sikoryak
Every day, it gets increasingly difficult to see how we are going to get through the next four years. But projects like these make it momentarily bearable - a collection of actual Trump quotes with him drawn into classic comic covers delivering them.
by Joan Cornella
There are few things funnier and as offensive at the same time as Cornella's brightly colored, transgressive gag comics. If you need or expect trigger warnings as you navigate life, you'll want to avoid this. For everyone else - this book is heeelarious and so, so wrong.
