Passing for Human by Liana Finck
Jewish Comix Anthology: Volume 1 collected by Steven M. Bergson - I love collections of little 1-4 page comics, so much to see in one book!
🏳️🌈 Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel - A classic, the chapter endings will repeatedly punch you in the gut
I Feel Bad by Orli Auslander
The Children of Palomar by Gilbert Hernandez - Very strange, and guaranteed to rattle around in your brain for some time
Jewish Images in The Comics: A Visual History by Fredrik Strömberg
The Silence of Malka by Rubén Pellejero and Jorge Zentner - absolutely drop dead gorgeous paintings and warm, naturalistic characterization. Be prepared for a dramatic change in tone, though.
🏳️🌈 Spinning by Tillie Walden
🏳️🌈 My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness by Nagata Kabi
🏳️🌈 Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe
Everything is Flammable by Gabrielle Bell - An engaging glimpse into the artist’s life, and the lives of those around her, with simple but expressive drawings
Your Black Friend by Ben Passmore - A wacky style paired with concise writing. A very quick read.
🏳️🌈 This Woman’s Work by Julie Delporte - I love, love, love, LOVE the loose, explorative artwork in this book. I wish I could eat this book like a cake. And it features Tove Jansson!
🏳️🌈 Lost Soul, Be at Peace by Maggie Thrash - The sincere writing made me unexpectedly cry. A+
A Girl Called Echo, Pemmican Wars by Katherena Vermette, Scott B. Henderson, and Donovan Yaciuk
🏳️🌈 gods With a Little g by Tupelo Hassman
Sabrina The Teenage Witch by Kelly Thompson and artists Veronica and Andy Fish - For some reason I’m obsessed with this cleanly drawn and fluffily written book. Its been a bit since I enjoyed a non-indie title this much. Fun and colorful in exactly the way the Netflix show failed to be.
🏳️🌈 The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman and artist Chris Riddell
