New Releases

Jessi's Secret Language cover

Jessi’s Secret Language by Ann M. Martin and Chan Chau

Based on the ever-popular series The Baby-Sitters Club, this comic follows newbie babysitter Jessi and a young Deaf boy, Matt. Matt communicates through sign language, so Jessi decides that she — and all the other kids in the neighborhood! — should learn it as well.

Ducks cover

Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands by Kate Beaton

Best known for her hilarious webcomic Hark! A Vagrant, Beaton gets personal with this graphic memoir. Relating her years in Alberta, Canada, she juxtaposes that country’s natural beauty with its ruthless pursuit of oil — and the consequences of that pursuit on the locals, the environment, and Beaton herself.

Riot Recommendations

Today’s Riot Rec theme is: thieves! These sticky-fingered protagonists may be (okay, definitely are) breaking the law, but you’ll cheer them on anyway.

The husband-and-wife team of Tobin and Coover bring us the best, most adorable thief in the world: Bandette, an ingenious teenager who, with the help of her dog and her friends, can steal anything. But can she outwit an assassin determined to eliminate her? (Of course she can, but please read to find out how!)
