CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED COMICS FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR GIFT LIST!

For those who love furious action and incredible artwork: Infinite Kung Fu by Kagan McLeod, and The Homeland Directive by Robert Venditti & Mike Huddleston

“The great strength of [Infinite Kung Fu] is its originality, but equally impressive are McLeod’s extraordinary illustrations and compelling narrative… one of the 10 best graphic novels of the year.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The Homeland Directive: an addictive page-turner that feels like an edge-of-your-seat theater experience.” — MTV Splash Page

For moms who still know how to have a good time: Underwire by Jennifer Hayden

“Hayden’s cheerful profanity and scratchy lines give the work a homey, intimate feel… Hayden’s stories are like comfortable, lived-in jeans–not the most stylish or flattering, but the ones you want to spend time wearing.” — Publishers Weekly

For small-town folks, family members, or hockey fans: Essex County by Jeff Lemire

“A rich tapestry … Mr. Lemire infuses his characters with vivid details that make them burst to life.” — The New York Times

For fantasy fans & animal lovers: Owly by Andy Runton & Korgi (including the new Book 3) by Christian Slade

“The art, storytelling, pacing, and world [Christian] Slade has created is fantastic and you don’t have to be a kid to appreciate it.” — About.com

For 20-30somethings with mixed feelings about growing up: Any Empire by Nate Powell

“Powell’s exceptional visual-storytelling gift transforms a potentially obvious antiwar parable into a ravishingly beautiful, emotionally resonant, thoughtful, and provocative work of art.” — Booklist (starred review)

For middle schoolers (and middle-schoolers at heart): Pirate Penguin vs Ninja Chicken by Ray Friesen

Pirate Penguin: Each panel is punctuated with so many quips and jokes that they don’t work to form a narrative so much as they collectively embody an extended Abbot and Costello routine.” — Graphic Novel Reporter

For early readers, or kids who love to hear books read out loud: Johnny Boo & Dragon Puncher by James Kochalka

“Just the right blend of sarcasm, silliness, and action to appeal to both child readers and to adults reading this with their kids.” — School Library Journal’s Good Comics For Kids

For young lovers and those who remember young love: Blankets (deluxe hardcover edition) by Craig Thompson, and Lucille by Ludovic Debeurme

“Reading Blankets is like reliving your youth as you wander through the artist’s personal trials of fundamentalist religion and teenage heart-break in small-town America… The Best Graphic Novel of the Decade.” — Paste Magazine

“Debeurme gets underneath what makes these young lovers tick, and is realistic enough to realize that they’re too inexperienced and impulsive to fix each other. Still, the love affair in Lucille burns bright, illuminating two lives.” — The AV Club

For savvy hippies and pop-culture vultures: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century and Alan Moore’s Dodgem Logic (full set)

“Fans won’t be let down by the latest instalment of this clever, lurid saga.” — The Guardian
