Outrageous by Kliph Nesteroff

Staff Pick

What we call "cancel culture" is nothing new. In the 1800s, campaigners crusaded against blackface, upholders of public morals were stabbed, and some towns outlawed "show business" altogether. Immigrant groups used culture wars to define their place in America; other groups, like the John Birch Society, used them to further their own dark ends. Nesteroff's fascinating, rigorously researched history is a wild ride through over a century of pushing the envelope and pushing back.

The Incal by Alejandro Jodorosky

Staff Pick

Since its first publication at the beginning of the 1980s, this jaw-dropping scifi saga has been acclaimed as one of the greatest graphic novels ever. It's inspired Hayao Miyazaki, Akira, The Matrix, even the Star Wars sequels. The story of detective John DiFool's adventures in a universe at war is a singular event, a spiritual quest rendered in mind-blowing visuals that deserve to be slapped on the ceiling of a Sistine Chapel built out of magic mushrooms. Strap in, kid. Galaxies far, far away were NEVER like this.

The Great God Pan and Other Horror Stories by Arthur Machen

Staff Pick

Roll over H.P. Lovecraft and tell Edgar Allan Poe the news! Mystic, psychogeographer, and hoaxster Arthur Machen might have been the greatest horror writer of them all. He was one of the first to turn the city into a site of unimaginable terror, and every tale in this bumper collection mines both folkloric trauma and urban anxiety. Lock the doors, set the perimeter alarm, don't answer that tap on the window, and get ready for a great discovery ... as well as a lot of sleepless nights.
