Big Mushy Happy Lump: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection Cover Image

Published: Andrews McMeel Publishing - March 7th, 2017

The follow up to "Adulthood is a Myth," Sarah Andersen's put out yet another HILARIOUS (yes, all caps) book of short comics and it's possibly one of the best things ever. Everything she makes a comic about is all too relatable and will have you not only LOL-ing, but also reflecting on just how self-deprecating some of the shorts are. 10/10 laughed way too hard at this.

Snotgirl Volume 1: Green Hair Don't Care Cover Image
ISBN: 9781534300361
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Image Comics - February 28th, 2017

The latest from Brian Lee O'Malley and Leslie Hung. Snotgirl is about Lottie Person, an L.A. fashion blogger who's online identity has totally overshadowed her IRL identity (or maybe lack thereof).  Lottie (Snottie) is shallow, inconsiderate, vain, just broke up with her BF, and has hella bad allergies. Weird things start going on when her doctor prescribes her new meds and she's totally like, wtf about it. If you're a fan of Scott Pilgrim or Seconds, this is definitely worth checking out!

Published: Vintage - March 28th, 2007

The Road tells the never-ending odyssey of a nameless father and son. The two are making their way through a bleak, grey, and desolate landscape. As I was reading I was often thought, “how many ways can McCarthy describe the same tragic landscape? How many times can he manage to make a bleak landscape descriptive enough to be interesting?” But he does it over and over again, in the masterful way that McCarthy does. All the perfect bits of his writing prowess are in this book. There were so many moments in this book where I had to pause for a second before reading on. This is a book about a father’s love and devotion to his son; there are cannibals, faint traces of time before their bleak setting, horrors, and an all around sense that there is not much left to, or of, humanity.

Alex Espinoza's Still Water Saints feels like stepping into a botanica and getting swept up and lost amongst all the "santa's" (saints), teas, and charms. It's magical, spiritual, grounded, and charged with emotion. Espinoza marks this book with a lot of familiar spots around the SGV, making it feel new and familiar all at once. Espinoza writes his characters with distinct personalities and voices while still maintaning some sort of synchrony. I read through this book in two nights and am still so drawn to it. A lovely book written by a lovely man, I cannot sing this book, or Alex, enough praises.
