Truth is Fragmentary by Gabrielle Bell

Raw, bare-boned, scathingly funny dispatches from the renown comic diarist Gabrielle Bell, with biting cultural commentary mixed with her signature introspective, self-deprecating humor and surreal digressions (From car driving bears, through Zombie Apocalypses, to cute babies, and… more bears!) as she visits France, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Colombia, back to Brooklyn and finally landing in Upstate New York. In Truth Is Fragmentary Gabrielle Bell proves she can be… funny!

It Never Happened Again by Sam Alden

Two exquisite stories drawn in Sam Alden’s signature, flowing, and lush pencil style. In “Hawaii 1997,” few words are spoken, but Aldens imagery evokes the magic of a night-time encounter at a Hawaiian resort. In “Anime” he explores the complicated dynamics of pop culture obsession. Sam Alden is one of the brightest young talents working today.
