Creepy

A delightfully disquieting and thoroughly enjoyable nightmare.

Birds of Maine

DeForge’s often hilarious, sometimes cutting satire is made more impactful by the sense he’s driven less by anger than compassion for those trapped in absurd, faltering systems. Not to be missed.

Talk to My Back

In this seminal feminist alt-manga, Yamada (who passed away in 2009) revealed her protagonist’s complex inner life through poetic prose and fluid, expressive linework reminiscent of fashion illustration but keyed to depict complex emotion. A brilliantly realized, keenly insightful, resonant character study.

A playfully structured, frequently hilarious character study.
