X’ed, The Hive, and Sugar Skull by Charles Burns. … Demon, Volume 1 and Demon, Volume 2 by Jason Shiga. … Equinoxes by Cyril Pedrosa … Midnighter and Apollo by writer Steve Orlando and — I can’t remember; I think several people worked on this. … Tumor by Joshua Hale Fialkov and Noel Tuazon. … The End of Summer by Tillie Walden. … This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki. … SuperMutant Magic Academy by Jillian Tamaki. … Boundless by Jillian Tamaki. … Speak of the Devil by Gilbert Hernández. … Solid State by Jonathan Coulton, Matt Fraction, and Albert Monteys. … The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage, written by Jen Van Meter with art by Robert de la Torre. … Wrinkles by Paco Roca. … 5,000 Kilometers per Second by Manuele Fior.
In the interest of folks who don’t have a lot of time (who does?), I’d recommend in particular the Gordimer novel, the Siskin book on “system,” the two Shiga graphic novels (those are the first two volumes out of six), and Boundless (a graphic novel collection of short stories) by Jillian Tamaki.
