Unrig: How To Fix Our Broken Democracy

An informative and surprisingly optimistic primer on American democracy’s challenges and how to combat them, communicated with a dry, deliberate seriousness that may not spark the interest of every reader. [Previewed in Douglas Rednour’s “Picture This,” LJ 6/20.]
PREMIUM

The Silent Invasion. Vol. 3: The Abductions

Following up their previous two volumes in the series (Red Shadows and The Great Fear), Cherkas and Hancock continue their exploration of Cold War–era sf paranoia with just the right amount of rich film noir sensibility combined with a striking artistic grafting of midcentury modern cartooning with expressively sinewy line work. Recommended for collections with the earlier books in the series.

Child Star

This complex portrait of how entertainment stories and personalities permeate the airwaves to become a part of people’s genuine lives, from those watching at home to those involved in the show’s creation, is thought provoking and poignant yet honest in its humanity. [Previewed in Douglas Rednour’s “Picture This,” LJ 6/20.]

Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter

Actor–turned–comics scribe Dastmalchian and dynamite artist Ketner (Witch Doctor. Vol. 1) join forces to create a superior horror comedy adventure with genuine dramatic tension that revels in its own rich graveyard walk as much as it celebrates the midnight tradition of the television horror host. [Previewed in Douglas Rednour’s “Picture This,” LJ 6/20.]
