A truly tender and heartbreaking graphic novel about self and sexual discovery that does not read as gratuitous or exploitative in its depiction of lesbian love. Instead Maroh presents the narrative about these two women in love as one filled with the joy that accompanies rapturous love and the eventual devastation when it ends. Accompanied by equally moving artwork centered on the color blue, Maroh has created an intimate masterpiece worthy of inclusion among the great LGBTQ works in literature.

You hear all the time about good books, great books, fun books, but it’s rarer that one comes down the pipe that is the product of certified genius. Emil Ferris’s My Favorite Thing is Monsters mashes together pulp horror, fine art, and notebook doodles, the tangled stories of a Chicago neighborhood and the horrors of World War II. Like the ten-year-old heroine at its center, I guarantee you won’t see another book as committed to being its wild, monstrous self as this one.

Flintstones, meet the Flintstones! Creators Steve Pugh and Mark Russell took that wacky cartoon from Hanna-Barbera and updated it in the form of a comic book. What is truly astonishing, what I almost still can’t believe even though I’ve read it, is that it works. Not only does it work—it is hilarious. Here before you is a romp of a satire that will surprise you with its humor and its sharp societal criticisms. Buy it. Read it. Share it with your family and friends. On my honor as a bookseller you’ll have a yabba dabba doo time!
