I first encountered Emily Carroll's work through her amazing interactive webcomics, and immediately became entranced by her dark and hauntingly beautiful storytelling. This collection does not disappoint in being both creepy and stunning! Best read by candlelight, in the darkest hours of the night, whilst your creepy sister-in-law lurks next door.
This Japanese comic memoir is the inspiring and frustrating story of Rokudenashiko's arrest for creating vulva-shaped art. Her adorable and fun storytelling gives a lighthearted take on her mission to fight against female genitalia taboo and censorship.
War threatens between humans and the half-breed Arcanics, and Maika Halfwolf has a darkness within her that has her being pursued from all sides. But what defines a monster? This is a beautiful new series that you won't want to miss!
This eclectic collection of short comics is beautiful in every respect. Fantastically well drawn, intelligent, witty and often unbearably personal, it could be the best book I read last year.
Beautiful, surreal, often willfully opaque, this is a fantastic work by an arist at the height of his power.
In the genre-guzzling longest work by a true comics master, Daniel Clowes turns a pulp sci-fi scenario into the most cynical and sordid story you'll ever read about the power of true love.
Marlys is the best friend you wish you had when you were eight: an irrepressible agent of chaos. Lynda Barry captures the spirit of childhood with phenomenal humour and warmth.
Will Eisner's expressively drawn collection, combining kitchen-sink melodrama with fairytale elements, introduced "graphic novels" to the world and inaugerated the modern era of comics as art. This beautiful new edition is the perfect way to experience them.
Eleanor Davis draws comics the way that regular people form sentences. She drew this travel diary on a cross-country bike trip, and the entries range from spare doodles of her progress or aching knees to finely rendered moments of heartbreaking beauty.
From the secret history of a hallucinogenic sound file to pornographic sitcoms, direct-sales pyramid schemes and Mirror Facebook, this inventive, experimental collection explores the impact of technology, media and capitalism on how we think and feel, while demonstrating that Jillian Tamaki is one of the greatest comics artists working today.
