Go To Sleep, I Miss You: Cartoons From the Fog of New Parenthood (First Second) – As a parent, these short cartoons are so funny and hit home.

Gwen Stacy #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s been doing a solid job of filling in history recently and this new series gives us the unknown history of Gwen Stacy.

Hawkeye Freefall #3 (Marvel) – The first two issues were so much fun and we’re expecting more of the same.
