COMICS I RECOMMEND TO PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY DON'T READ COMICS
Very much off the top of my head, but all these comics are amazing.
- •Through the Woods - Emily CarrollThis horror short story collection is both beautiful and incredibly creepy.
- •Nimona - Noelle StevensonOne of my favorites of 2015, I dare you to not fall in love with Nimona.
- •Emma, Vol. 1 - Kaoru MoriThis excellent manga features a ladies' maid in Victorian England who catches the eye of a wealthy gentleman.
- •Blankets - Craig ThompsonA breathtaking coming-of-age memoir
- •American Born Chinese - Gene Luen YangOne of the best children-of-immigrants stories I've ever read.
- •Displacement - Lucy KnisleyRoz Chast gets a lot of attention for her elder care memoir (for great reason) but it's Knisley's simple memoir about taking her elderly grandparents on vacation that has stuck with me.
- •Pyongyang - Guy de LisleThis account of cartoonist de Lisle's time spent working in Pyongyang, North Korea is as absurd as it is shocking.
- •Shortcomings - Adrian TomineThis graphic novel about two twenty-something Asian Americans provides sharp and on point commentary about race.
- •This One Summer - Jillian Tamaki and Mariko TamakiThis really is destined to become a modern classic.
- •Krishna - Abhishek SinghIf you want a book in which every page is a frameable piece of art, this is what you need to pick up.
