  1. you said one of the girls in lumberjanes is queer but shes a lesbian in canon (mal) i dont appreciate you erasing her lesbian identity??

  2. Soooo I haven't bought any comics or graphic novels in YEAARS but you have inspired me!! I'm definitely going to start with Lumberjanes!!

  3. Have you heard of Truth: Red, White, and Black by Rick Morales and Kyle Baker? Or really anything Kyle Baker does? Truth is a great Marvel comic that uncovers the harsh, white-washed history of the truth serum that created Captain America. It is brutal and heartbreaking and one of the best works I've ever read.

  4. Have you read any manga I really like this form of book and it's one of the only ways that I can read more contemporary books. I just finished volume 1 of Orange and it's a beautiful series involving time travel and a group of friends trying to help save a friend from commuting subside with the help of letters from their future selves.

  5. Have you read Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge? I think you'd dig it. Just out of college protagonist, very Buffy-vibe, LGBT+ characters.

  6. The Sandman ALWAYS! It's an older series (1989-1996), pretty long and divided into several arcs, but it is finished. It's more adult-oriented and literary sort of fantasy that takes place in the DC universe (cameos from guys like Martian Manhunter and John Constantine and places like Arkham Asylum) but you don't need to know the main DCU to enjoy The Sandman.

  7. I read Nimona when it was still online as a webcomic and really loved it as well. I've also read the first volume of Lumberjanes and I'm looking forward to catching up, it's just so fun 🙂
    I read the first trade of Bitch Planet last year and liked it but I was really confused by the premise at first (I went in not really knowing anything and based on the title I really thought it was going to be about aliens for some reason) I'll probably get the second one whenever my library gets it.
    I'll probably pick up Giant Days soon because I really like slice of life type stuff 🙂

  8. I have read most of the Lumberjane series. I need to catch up. I'll be honest though when Noelle Stevenson left the series my enjoyment of it went down slightly. She has a new graphic novel series coming out soon (hopefully starting this year) called "4 Wizards" and it sounds really good.

  9. I read Lumberjanes last month and loved it! I've only read the first volume but really want to continue with the series. Nimona has been on my TBR for ages! I just bought Giant Days after the guy at the store recommended it to me and I can't wait to get to it!

  10. Love the Fun Home musical and i've been meaning to pick up the graphic novel for ages. Will have to do so, esp. since you enjoyed it so much!

  11. I love Nimona so I'm ver y excited to pick up lumberjanes! I haven't read my graphic novels so this is a very helpful video! Have you read the saga series?

  12. Giant Days lowkey reminds me of the Gorillaz esque art style which I adore so I'll have to check it out!!!

  13. Oh man, this is my time to shine! Here are some recommendations for graphic novels:

  15. I'm gonna add so many of these to my TBR. I'm on a huge graphic novel kick lately 🙂 Oh and Buffy <3 <3

  16. I loved the first volume of Giant Days so much! I really need to continue on with the series. I've already bought up to volume 4 so I just need a good day to binge them! And I also really have to read the Avatar comics soon! I need to know what happened to Zuko's mom!

  17. All great recommendations! I'd also highly recommend you check out the new series Ladycastle! The first three issues are out now. I'm loving it.
