The story of a bully and a deaf girl who meet again in high school and become friends—or something more?—while navigating the treacherous waters of adolescence. Drawn when the artist was in her early 20s, A Silent Voice is unmistakably the work of a young talent. But its vitality, its nuanced characters, and its willingness to tackle difficult subjects have won over thousands of readers, leading to an Eisner nomination in 2016. Highly recommended for those looking for empathetic stories about ordinary people and the struggles faced by those hurt or ignored by modern society.

Deku wants nothing more than to be a superhero, but in a world where 80% of the population have powers, he's got nothing. But when his childhood idol offers Deku the chance to continue his legacy, he finds himself enrolled in a school for heroes, a Hero Academia! This is an all-ages Japanese comic serialized in Shounen Jump, but it has a better grasp on dynamic action, memorable characters, and themes of legacy and perseverance than most superhero comics from the US. Now that the second season of the TV show is airing, it's a great time to catch up.

John Allison is the single best writer of British teens trading witticisms on the US comics scene. Giant Days unites his formidable talents with artists Lissa Treiman and (later) Max Sarin, telling the tale of three college students. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wince in sympathy, probably. Those who enjoy might appreciate Allison's earlier webcomic, "Bad Machinery."
