How do you describe something like Beastars? An award-winning comic from Japan, it's what you'd get if you mashed together Zootopia and Heathers. But it's also a romantic comedy, a crime story, and an obsessively detailed portrait of a society of animals struggling to control their urges. And this is just the first volume! Before the anime adaptation airs in a few months, now's the best time to hop on this bizarre but heartfelt comic.

Drawn by a nonbinary comics artist, Our Dreams at Dusk tackles adolescence, sexuality and gender head-on. Featuring explosive visual metaphors and lovable (if sometimes frustrating) characters, this is one of my favorite comics to be published in the US this year. Recommended to fans of "On a Sunbeam"!

Originally published independently by its author, Copra reads like Suicide Squad but looks like no other comic ever drawn. Newly republished by Image Comics, now is a better time than ever to begin reading this cult classic.
