You think you've given up on superhero comics, and then you read the first few issues of Immortal Hulk. 2000 AD scribe Al Ewing and illustrator Joe Bennett return the character to his days on the road, seasoning thoroughly with the pulp grostesquerie of EC Comics. The result is a Jekyll and Hyde story that, for the first time in years, makes Bruce Banner's green alter ego genuinely scary. Read it and weep!

 If you’re on Instagram, you should definitely be following Mari Andrew. Mari’s art has always been unique because she pairs her drawings with beautiful thoughts on life, the universe, and everything. Whether it’s as simple (I wish) as not hearing back from a date or as complex as dealing with a chronic illness, Mari has insights of her own as well as extraordinary empathy for situations beyond hers. Am I There Yet? is wonderful proof that life’s journey--as exemplified by Mari--is rarely linear, and the strange zig-zags can be the most useful in the long run. Come for the art, stay for the insights.

Whether you have children, want children, or can’t stand children, this graphic memoir is fun for all readers. For Lucy, getting pregnant was the easy part; staying pregnant, however, was far more difficult. After several miscarriages, she finally has the chance to experience the joys of growing a human but the journey isn’t without its hiccups. Knisley’s illustration style is friendly and comforting and her dialogue humorous and entertaining. Facts about pregnancy and babies woven into her story create surprisingly informative asides and a well-rounded volume for those looking for a quick read. As an expectant mother, I couldn’t recommend this book more.
