    Irmina by Barbara Yellin - this is a story about a young german woman shortly before and during the time of the second world war and decades later. She had a relationship with a black student before the war and with the change of the political situation she changes a lot as well. The book is inspired by aspects of Yellin`s grandmothers life.

    Monstress by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda

    Badass world building, gorgeous imagery, and a nuanced female lead.

    OMG Monstress, so great!

    I am shamefully far behind on Saga, but I love it.

    Monstress I went to a signing with Marjorie Liu at Barnes & Noble and she was awesome and answered a ton of audience questions. She is putting so much work into that book, and it's paying off.

    I'm a Brian K. Vaughan fanboy, so Saga and Paper Girls are always near the top of my list.

    Wicked + Divine is fascinating and gorgeous.

    Don't know if I mentioned this about Iceman before...but... he seems to be a Kate Bush fan. What else to do when you've just returned from space, Cyclops, Jean and Beast are fighting giant insects and Archangel is being mauled by Sabretooth? Of course, you go buy the latest Kate Bush CD.

    Monstress sounds very interesting, thanks for the suggestion.

    I can only repeat myself and recommend Elfquest, if you don't know it yet.
    The final story arc is happening right now and the early stuff is available for free on their website: www.elfquest.com.
    The first arc (20 issues) and the Kings of the Broken Wheel storylines are absolutely amazing!
    These are not your standard LOTR type elves, and it tackles heavy subject matter.
    You need to read this, it changed my life as a teenager.

    Si, you dont need an icon when your current avatar is like a statement AND Jem AND the Holograms, you dont even change.
