Are you a fan of superhero comics, but wish they'd spend less time mired in endless crossovers and years of continuity? Longing for a hint of that spark that brought you to the genre in the first place? One Punch Man is the answer: a Japanese comic about a put-upon superhero so powerful that he can defeat any enemy, no matter how terrifying, in JUST. ONE. PUNCH. You'd think that'd get tiring after a while, but mad genius ONE and fabulous artist Yusuke Murata combine the snappy humor of a webcomic with some of the best action scenes in comics to create what's for my money the best pure superhero comic currently being serialized.

With the recent end of BBC's excellent TV adaptation, there's no better time than now to check out Susanna Clarke's ten-year masterpiece. It's a comedy of manners, it's a fully rendered alternate history, it's bubbling over with a deeply realized sense of the weird that erupts into something incredible in the final chapters. Granted, this is no book for the faint of heart: it comes with dozens of charming but occasionally digressive footnotes, and the story takes a while to play its hand. But the magic in this set of Tarot cards stands alone as the work of a singular imagination, fully worth the ten years it took to conjure.
