Top 25 Graphic Novels, Comics & Manga: September 2018

Posted: July 6, 2018

For me the stand-out books this coming September are Home After Dark and A New Jerusalem.  I’ve been awaiting the return to the medium of David Small, since he was acclaimed for his autobiographical debut Stitches. In Home After Dark he addresses the hyper-masculinised and homophobic climate of the America in the Fifties and its damaging effects on an anxious adolescent teenage boy. It’s a climate that has never really gone away.

In A New Jerusalem, another disruptive force on families to this day, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is sensitively explored by Benjamin Dixon, especially its impact between a father and son. Find out more about my highest recommendations in my latest PG Tips column here…
