New graphic novels (comics!) for adults

We are purchasing more graphic novels for adults.  Look for the bright green GN sticker at the top of the spine in the fiction and nonfiction sections.  Here are few to look for soon.

  • As the World Burns; 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Stay in Denial by Derrick Jensen & Stephanie McMillan
    A review on the back of the book reads “…not a book for doomsday pacifists or nihilists.  Jensen and McMillan, like their characters-animal, vegetable, and mineral- are warriors for LIFE.  -Counterpunch”
  • A.D. New Orleans; After the Deluge by Josh Neufeld
    This is an excellent example where a graphic novel is the best format for delivery.  Just flipping through the pages, it is obvious that the drawings in this book tell the story of the horror of Hurricane Katrina in a way that words and even photographs do not.
  • The Photographer; Into War-Torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders by Guibert, Lefevre, & Lemercier
    A mix of black and white photographs and simple color drawings tell the harrowing experiences of a Doctors Without Borders mission to Afghanistan.
