A Guest in the House by Emily Carroll

Staff Pick

Abby is newly married to her small town’s fresh face, David, but why did he choose her? She’s plain, quiet, and unsure. Nevertheless, she takes care of her spouse and stepdaughter, Crystal, dutifully preparing dinner, keeping house, and staying out of the way. But secrets surround her predecessor; David’s first wife and Crystal’s mother, Sheila. Abby knows she died, but no one can tell her how. No one except for Sheila herself, who haunts Abby in her lakeside home and slowly unravels the mysteries David has weaved. Still, all is not what it seems. A master of graphic horror, Carroll delivers another bone-chilling tale sure to keep you wide-eyed and guessing—and maybe sleeping with the light on.

The Incal by Alejandro Jodorosky

Staff Pick

Since its first publication at the beginning of the 1980s, this jaw-dropping scifi saga has been acclaimed as one of the greatest graphic novels ever. It's inspired Hayao Miyazaki, Akira, The Matrix, even the Star Wars sequels. The story of detective John DiFool's adventures in a universe at war is a singular event, a spiritual quest rendered in mind-blowing visuals that deserve to be slapped on the ceiling of a Sistine Chapel built out of magic mushrooms. Strap in, kid. Galaxies far, far away were NEVER like this.

One Beautiful Spring Day by Jim Woodring

Staff Pick

 

This collection gathers three of Jim Woodring’s graphic novels about the bipedal anthropomorph, Frank, and adds 100 pages of new work in which we witness Frank gaining, losing, and/or regaining friends, a romantic partner, his home, and his pets (the adorable Pupshaw and Pushpaw). Like all Frank stories, this one is wordless, with images rendered in thick lines with a steel-nibbed pen that gives them a classic feel running counter to the surrealism of the stories themselves. When you factor in the child-like nature of Frank and the other characters, the result is a touching, yet hilariously disturbing saga of friends seeking happiness in novelty but finding greater value in the familiar.
