Eight Billion Genies Deluxe Edition Vol. 1 by Charles Soule and Ryan Browne

Staff Pick

 

My favorite graphic novel of the year explores what might ensue if everyone got a genie of their own, and that genie granted them just one wish. That's the tantalizing question a group of Detroit dive bar patrons faces as the inevitable (and chaotic) results unfold over the next eight seconds, then the next eight minutes, all the way into the next eight centuries. This is everything you want from a comic--a wild premise that unfolds with perfect logic, brought to vivid life by Browne's endlessly entertaining art. If your wish is for pure awesomeness, you got it!

Cosmic Detective by Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt

Staff Pick

 

The murder of a god threatens the universe's very existence, and that's just the beginning of a thriller that's as at home in dingy, noir-like hotels as it is in the netherworlds between dimensions. Dedicated to Jack Kirby, this hallucinogenic wotzit from Sweet Tooth creator Lemire and Eisner-award-winning illustrator Kindt is pure scifi rush, with gorgeous panel after gorgeous panel bringing to life interstellar chaos and beyond-the-infinite wonderment.

Bright Young Women by Jessica Knoll

Staff Pick

Inspired by an actual case, Knoll's unputdownable novel begins with the 1978 break-in at a Florida State University sorority house. Chapter president Pamela Schumacher is the only one who saw what the press calls "the All-American serial killer," but her attempts to bring him to justice are thwarted by the men who think they know better. Knoll's bright young women are an unforgettable bunch, and this magnificent mystery boldly confronts the way Americans view unspeakable crime and who commits it.
