Graphic Novel Gift Guide from your Friendly Neighborhood Feminist

This post comes from our children’s inventory manager, Demi.

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

She’s not a girl, she’s a shark! Nimona is a magical shapeshifter who has apprenticed herself to the malicious Ballister Blackheart against the do-good schemes of the knightly Ambrosius Goldenloin! Read on for a rollicking, charming adventure with several wonderful twists.

Bitch Planet Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Val DeLandro

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s work. Her revitalization of Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel was one of my gateway drugs into comic book enthusiasm, and her work on Bitch Planet is DeConnick at her best. Take on the Patriarchy with this stunning volume.
 

Step Aside, Pops! by Kate Beaton

If you’re at all familiar with Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant webcomic, you’ll know all about her quirky illustration style and fast-talking historical heroines. This is Beaton’s second book with Drawn & Quarterly press, but she’s also published a truly fantastic picture book this year, The Princess & The Pony. Check both out for grown-up and budding feminists alike!
