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.

Opposable Thumbs by Matt Singer

Staff Pick

Before IMDB or Letterboxd, movie fans got their talking points from a public television show hosted by two guys who obviously hated each other's guts. This rollicking history of the Siskel & Ebert double act tells a very funny story of two egomaniacal frenemies who became true allies while creating a format that endures in podcasts and beyond. The team also inspired a national debate about movies that continues to this day. Thank 'em!
