NOTES FROM A SICKBED GN
In 2009, Tessa Brunton experienced the first symptoms of myalgic encephalomyelitis (also known as chronic fatigue syndrome). She spent much of the next eight years unwell, in a medical holding pattern, housebound and often alone.
In 2017, she found a strategy that helped reduce her symptoms, and soon began creating the first installments of a graphic memoir. Notes from a Sickbed collects previously released and brand-new, unseen comics that recall her experiences with honesty, a pointed wit, and a lively visual imagination.

JASON UPSIDE DAWN HC
In this absolutely bonkers comics collection, Norwegian cartoonist Jason follows his most oddball impulses, presenting to readers an intergalactic assortment of his weirdest, wildest short stories yet.
A dinner date devolves into a Dadaist farce. Death decides his victim’s fate over a high-stakes game of chess. Kafka is ensnared in a confounding bureaucracy of his own imagination. Spock beams down to 1920s Paris to live a double life as an avant-garde painter. Hitchcockian thrillers, literary adaptations, and homages to classic EC comics abound. Dinosaurs! David Bowie! Vampires! Elvis! Welcome to the cosmic gumbo of Upside Dawn. Norwegian cartoonist Jason is beloved for his signature dry wit, deadpan humor, and elegantly minimalist style. His newest compilation of short comics stories leans into the playful and experimental, as he mixes and matches genres, mashes up low and high brow culture, from Star Trek to Georges Perec, and leads readers through dizzying twists and turns – in sum, a beguiling collection for both stalwart Jason fans and the blissfully uninitiated.

D&D DUNGEON CLUB GN VOL 01 ROLL CALL
Harper Alley partners up with The Wizards of the Coast in the first book of a new graphic novel series by Molly Knox Ostertag and Xanthe Bouma to masterfully blend together a contemporary middle-grade school story with the high fantasy world of Dungeons & Dragons.

Olivia runs the game as Dungeon Master, while Jess is the solo party member, playing a take-no-prisoners, lone-wolf character of her own design named Sir Corius. But when Olivia wants to add a new player to their club, Jess finds herself struggling to share their game-and her best friend.
