The Infinity Particle by Wendy Xu
In this timely story, Clementine moves to Mars to work on artificial intelligence. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with Kye, her boss’s AI assistant. She definitely didn’t expect to be confronted with such dangerous questions about who deserves to be seen as human and what we owe to our fellow sentient beings.
Hex Americana by Bree Wolf

Is Ken that someone? What are these weird feelings Ken and Dante are feeling for each other? If they do win the race, can they handle the prospect of separating forever?

Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley

Bon appetit, nerd friends! I’ll see you with more tasty comics on Thursday (but please do not eat your comics)!
