Maroon Comix: Origins & Destinies

While the underground railroad has become well known to most Americans, the maroon tradition has remained more a subject for scholars and dogged researchers. This passionate collection will appeal to those interested in history, cultural studies, and the international cancer of slavery. [Previewed in Jody Osicki's "Graphically Speaking," LJ 6/15/18.]

Alpha: Abidjan to Paris

Winning prizes from PEN and Doctors Without Borders, this uncomfortable chronicle compels readers, tweens through adults, to identify with the world's unwanted while yet savoring a rip-roaring if often futile adventure.

Notes on a Thesis

This brilliant satire of academic dysfunction is not to be missed. Some nudity and adult language.

The Pervert

A challenging, intense, and empathic account of finding oneself despite heavy odds.



The Three Rooms in Valerie's Head

Blurring the boundaries between physical and mental realities, Valerie's poignant romances open larger vistas where music and imagination offer wit and insight beyond the grayness of daily life. This will appeal to romance fans seeking more challenging fare.

Babylon Berlin

Lovers of crime comics will savor all the details of this complicated adult story with a trove of Russian gold as the prize.


While appealing as sexually explicit romance, the rather spare story also models kindness and candidness in talking about love and sex. For adult manga fans welcoming erotic elements.
