A new month means a new exciting reading list to look forward to! Scroll down to find some amazing new reads to enjoy over various holiday breaks, cozied up by a fire, maybe on the beach? Wherever you like to read!
We have about half a dozen new series and one shots we're keeping our eyes on, the first of which is DIE, written by Kieron Gillen (of Wicked + Divine fame)! Described by Gillen as "goth jumanji," this new ongoing series follows a group of fourty-somethings as they are forced to face a terror they barely survived as role-playing teens. Multiple sources have called this title "the new Saga" in terms of expected popularity, so this is definitely on our "must-read" list! Another title we've long been excited for is Goddess Mode from Zoe Quinn! The futuristic story follows the young woman who's job is to provide tech support for the godlike A.I. supporting humanity. We also get a new title from Nnedi Okorafor, the writer of the recent Shuri series: LaGuardia. Set in a world where aliens are integrated into society, the story follows a pregnant Nigerian-American doctor as she returns to New York under mysterious conditions, accompanied by a smuggled alien plant. A modern tale of immigration, we are looking forward to picking this one up!
Hopefully you also notice as you scroll through this list the number of amazing books and graphic novels slated for December release! Some are not necessarily new, but are being rereleased (so a perfect second chance to snag them!). We're particularly excited for some of the manga titles, including Kuma Miko: Girl Meets Bear, Yuri Bear Storm, and our fave Tokyo Tarareba Girls!
And of course we can't forget about the next exciting installments of our favorite continuing adventures! December brings the next issues for Blackbird, Jook Joint, Lumberjanes, Man-Eaters, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Ms. Marvel, Shuri, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, and SO MANY MORE!
We can't wait for all of the amazing comics coming out this month featuring dynamic femme characters, writers, and artists!

OCT181717 (W) Rikke Villadsen (A/CA) Rikke Villadsen
Danish cartoonist Rikke Villadsen makes her English language debut with this story of a sailor that is playfully creepy and oddly beautiful. A fisherman's life traversing the ocean is full of danger and surprise, but even the most experienced seafarer would not be ready to pull up their net after they've caught a newborn baby and a talking fish! Thus begins a story full of expressive pencil drawings, provocative symbolism, and a madness that doesn't just bubble beneath the surface of the water, but drenches the sailor-and the reader-like a tidal wave. Depicted in distinctive, and often grotesque, graphite, these unlikely shipmates trek through the thick fog, provoked by nature's powerful siren song and perhaps something even more sinister. Revelations arise about the sailor's perplexing childhood and the dubious birth of the mysterious baby as waves violently crash against the ship, already in a descent toward absurdity. Villadsen's first foray into the American literary scene is ultimately about the end of one life, the beginning of another, and a man, literally and figuratively, lost at sea.

At school, Kureha's unassuming personality and looks render her practically invisible. Sometimes, it feels like no one notices her at all, until cute and outgoing transfer student Ginko asks Kureha to be her friend. With Ginko's encouragement and protection, Kureha starts to come out of her shell and realizes that, whether or not her new classmate really is a bear, her feelings toward Ginko might be stronger than friendship after all.
