If Penny Brighton didn’t have bad luck, she’d have no luck at all. She lost her job. And her apartment. In the same day. But it’s okay, her friend has a cozy storage unit she can crash in. And there’s bound to be career opportunities at the neighborhood laundromat―just look how fast that 12-year-old who runs the place made it to management! Plus, there’s this sweet guy at the community center, and maybe Penny can even have a conversation with him without being a total dork. Surely Penny is capable of becoming an actual responsible adult, and if she can do that her luck’s bound to change! Right?
Wild: Or So I Was Born to Be
By: Cristian Castelo
Half roller derby action, half coming-of-age tale, Cristian Castelo’s debut graphic novel takes readers into the rinks of the 1970s on a track where identity is made and the league underdogs live to skate another day.
At Westhoff High, pain is part of the curriculum… But so is math, science, and chemistry. However, Wild Rodriguez and her pint-size companions have always had one goal and one goal only as they enter freshman year: to join the Rocket Rollers and test their mettle in the infamously violent roller derby league. Now, summer draws to an end and tryouts are here! Do they have what it takes to climb the ranks of the derby world, or will their dream just as quickly turn into a nightmare?

An epic graphic novel retelling of the Japanese folktale about the one-inch Samurai, Issunboshi.
In feudal Japan where creatures of myth and folklore are real, a demon sets out to reforge an ancient weapon to take over the world. The only person who can stop him is a six-inch-tall would-be samurai, who also happens to be the final and most important piece of the weapon.
ISSUNBOSHI: A Graphic Novel is a lush retelling of the classic Japanese folktale reminding us that one is not born a hero –– you must discover the courage to become one.
Dancing on the Volcano
By: Floor de Goede
When cartoonist Flo travels the globe for the first time without his boyfriend, Bas, he is too preoccupied with feeling homesick to really see any of the beauty around him. Even after many years together, do you still need distance between you in order to miss each other–or can you occupy the same space and still feel disconnected?
Dancing on the Volcano is an autobiographical story about the painful but recognizable sides of love. We all know that a long relationship has many stages, but never before has someone portrayed all those different facets of love as beautifully as Floor de Goede in the original graphic memoir.
