    Let’s get graphic

    The latest Graphic Content roundup is full of action and adventure; some books are historically accurate, while others are totally fictional. There’s an intimate memoir, like Fetch, which revolves around a woman and her “bad” dog and the surprise lessons that raising this challenging being offer about the woman’s own life, and then there are larger-than-life historical narratives, like the artful tome that is Josephine Baker, which is not only a celebration of the star’s life, but also an illustrated history of America, Paris, and the people and places Baker knew throughout the early part of 20th century.

    Every book featured here feels empowering and fresh and has characters who are okay with being uncomfortable in order to better discover their truths; the people who live within these pages learn to celebrate the things that make them unique, and then realize that these differences are exactly what makes them powerful.

    And the variety of art styles available within these choices is pretty incredible, too! With nods to everything from the Golden Age of comic books to photo realistic illustration, each selection is distinct and remarkable. I was so impressed with every team involved with these stories, and hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did.
