Top 20 Graphic Novels, Comics & Manga: July 2019

Posted: May 5, 2019

For me the stand-out UK highlight for this July has to be Kate Charlesworth’s highly anticipated Sensible Footwear: A Girl’s Guide, in which she vividly recreates the often hidden history of lesbians in Britain from 1950 to the present. In sensitive wash illustrations, she evokes formative experiences of growing up in the North and the gradual realisation that she was ‘different’. And from the USA, we are being spoilt this year with not one but two graphic novels by Love & Rockets co-auteur Jaime Hernandez, crafting with real devotion some of the most compelling contemporary characters not just in comics, but in any medium. Read about these and my other PG Tips here…
