Riot Recommendations

Today’s Riot Rec theme is: sisters! That special sisterly bond is the stuff of classic films, earworm-y Irving Berlin songs, and some pretty neat comics.

Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy cover

Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy by Rey Terciero and Bre Indigo

In this graphic novel adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, literature’s most beloved sisters must cope with their father’s absence in addition to the more common worries of teen girls everywhere. Luckily, they’ve got each other to cling to when times are tough.

My Neighbor Totoro cover

My Neighbor Totoro Volume One by Hayao Miyazaki

Based on one of Miyazaki’s most beloved films, this four-part comic recounts the tale of two young sisters, Satsuki and Mei, who befriend the magical creatures living in and around their new home. It’s a gentle adventure that is perfect for all ages, whether or not you’ve seen the film it’s based on (though you should see the movie too!).

Chalk up another week, nerd friends, and be sure to come back again next week for more great comic book news!
