The Golden Age. Bk. 1

Debut writer Moreil joins cocreator Pedrosa (Portugal) on this first chapter in an ongoing series that is filled with enough intrigue, magic, and mystery for an entire saga.

Go To Sleep (I Miss You): Cartoons from the Fog of New Parenthood

For a more narrative approach, consider Knisley’s earlier comic about her pregnancy and birth, Kid Gloves: Nine Months of Careful Chaos, which delves deeper and more satisfyingly into the topic than the sketchbook format allows. For a busy new (or veteran) parent, these bite-sized laughs are just what the pediatrician ordered.
