Mental Load A Feminist Comic
Mental Load A Feminist Comic
Emma takes on issues that weigh disproportionately on women - that invisible labour and unpaid organising we do for others - and gives them a comic, feminist twist. Most of us carry some form of mental load - about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life - but what makes up that burden and how it's distributed within households and understood in offices isn't usually equal or fair. From maternity leave (it's not a holiday!) to the male gaze and the medical establishment's treatment of women during childbirth, Emma skewers our modern lives in a way that is both hilarious and deadly serious. If you're not laughing, you're probably crying in recognition. Her comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income inequality and police violence.

Mozart The Man Behind the Music
Mozart The Man Behind the Music
Child prodigy, genius, freak, a man who lived frivolously and died a pauper... The myths surrounding Mozart, composer of some of the world's most sublime music, have long overtaken the known facts of his life. Now, in this charming and very personal tribute, artist Donovan Bixley offers a portrait of the composer that will forever change the way he is viewed. In nearly 100 original drawings and paintings, accompanied by text based on the many letters that he wrote during his life, beginning with the delightful, if misspelt, letters he wrote as a thirteen-year-old boy travelling in Italy with his father. Like his successful "Much Ado About Shakespeare", Bixley brings Mozart to life with humour but also reflects the turmoil of the times in which he lived. This is a newly rendered version of the book successfully published in 2006.

Palimpsest
Palimpsest
Thousands of South Korean children were adopted around the world in the 1970s and 1980s. More than nine thousand found their new home in Sweden, including the cartoonist Lisa Wool-Rim Sjoblom, who was adopted when she was two years old. Throughout her childhood she struggled to fit into the homogenous Swedish culture and was continually told to suppress the innate desire to know her origins. Be thankful, she was told; surely her life in Sweden was better than it would have been in Korea. Like many adoptees, Sjoblom learned to bury the feeling of abandonment. In Palimpsest, an emotionally charged memoir, Sjoblom s unaddressed feelings about her adoption come to a head when she is pregnant with her first child. When she discovers a document containing the names of her biological parents, she realizes her own history may not match up with the story she s been told her whole life: that she was an orphan without a background. As Sjoblom digs deeper into her own backstory, returning to Korea and the orphanage, she finds that the truth is much more complicated than the story she was told and struggled to believe. The sacred image of adoption as a humanitarian act that gives parents to orphans begins to unravel. Sjoblom s beautiful autumnal tones and clear-line style belie the complicated nature of this graphic memoir s vital central question: Who owns the story of an adoption?

Pirate Queen The Legend of Grace OMalley
Pirate Queen The Legend of Grace OMalley
A captivating retelling of the story of Grace O'Malley, the Pirate Queen of Ireland.

Grace is a true daughter of the fearsome O'Malley clan, and while still a child she yearns to help her father fight to keep Henry VIII's invading English armies out of Ireland. But battlefields are not seen as places for women, and for years she must sit idly at home while her father and her husband march off to defend their homeland. When English conspirators brutally murder her husband, though, Grace will remain idle no longer. She herself leads men into battle on the high seas, where her prowess as a sailor and her ability with a sword quickly gain her a reputation as The Pirate Queen of Ireland. But this reputation will place her own life and the lives of her entire family in danger, and will lead her to confront the most powerful woman in England, Queen Elizabeth I.

Pumpkinheads
Pumpkinheads
A smart and swoony Rainbow Rowell romance in full colour graphic novel form.

Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.

Every autumn, all through high school, they've worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world (not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is). They say goodbye every Halloween, and they're reunited every September 1.

But this Halloween is different - Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last goodbye.

Josiah's ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn't ready to let him. She's got a plan: What if instead of moping they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he's been mooning over for three years . . .

What if their last shift was an adventure?

Beloved writer Rainbow Rowell and Eisner Award-winning artist Faith Erin Hicks have teamed up to create Pumpkinheads, a tender and hilarious story about two irresistible teens discovering what it means to leave behind a place - and a person - with no regrets.
