BLAME THIS ON THE BOOGIE GN (MR) (C: 0-1-2)
(W/A/CA) Rina Ayuyang Inspired by the visual richness and cinematic structure of the Hollywood Musical, Blame This on the Boogie chronicles the adventures of a Filipino-American girl born in the decade of disco who escapes life's hardships and mundanity through through the genre's feel good song and dance numbers. Ayuyang's deeply personal, moving stories unveil the magic of the world around us-rendering the ordinary extraordinary through a jazzed-up song and dance routine. Blame This on the Boogie is Ayuyang's ode to the melody of the world, and how tuning out of life and into the magic of Hollywood can actually help an outsider find their place in it.

BLANKETS HC (D&Q ED) (MR)
(W/A/CA) Craig Thompson The graphic novel classic, available for the first time in a new Drawn & Quarterly trade paperback edition Blankets is the story of a young man coming of age and finding the confidence to express his creative voice. Craig Thompson's poignant graphic memoir plays out against the backdrop of a Midwestern winterscape: finely-hewn linework draws together a portrait of small town life, a rigorously fundamentalist Christian childhood, and a lonely, emotionally mixed-up adolescence. Under an engulfing blanket of snow, Craig and Raina fall in love at winter church camp, revealing to one another their struggles with faith and their dreams of escape. Over time though, their personal demons resurface and their relationship falls apart. It's a universal story, and Thompson's vibrant brushstrokes and unique page designs make the familiar heartbreaking all over again. This groundbreaking graphic novel, winner of two Eisner and three Harvey Awards, is an eloquent portrait of adolescent yearning; first love (and first heartache); faith in crisis; and the process of moving be

BOUNDLESS GN (MR)
(W/A/CA) Jillian Tamaki Jenny becomes obsessed with a strange 'mirror Facebook,' which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself. Helen finds her clothes growing baggy, her shoes looser, and as she shrinks away to nothingness, the world around her recedes as well. The animals of the city briefly open their minds to us, and we see the world as they do. A mysterious music file surfaces on the internet and forms the basis of a utopian society - or is it a cult? Boundless is at once fantastical and realist, playfully hinting at possible transcendence: from one's culture, one's relationship, oneself. This collection of short stories is a showcase for the masterful blend of emotion and humour of award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki.

BUMPERHEAD HC (MR)
Love and Rockets cartoonist Gilbert Hernandez returns with Bumperhead, a companion book to Marble Season. Gilbert's new book follows Bobby, a young slacker who narrates his life as it happens but offers very little reflection on the events that transpire. Bobby lives in the moment exclusively, and is incapable of seeing the world outside of his experiences. He comes of age in the 1970s, making a rapid progression through that era's different subcultures; in a short period of time he segues from a stoner glam-rocker to a drunk rocker to a speed-freak punk. He drifts in and out of relationships with friends, both male and female. Life zooms past him. Hernandez's approach captures the numbness and raw undirected anger and passion of a young man; a young man who waits for life to happen to him, not noticing all the while that it's happening.

Among Sikoryak's spot-on unions of government articles and amendments with famous comic book characters: the eighteenth amendment that instituted prohibition is articulated with Homer Simpson running from Chief Wiggum; the fourteenth amendment that solidifies citizenship to all people born and naturalized in the USA is personified by Ms. Marvel; and, of course, the nineteenth amendment offering women the right to vote is a glorious depiction of Wonder Woman breaking free from her chains.

For over 35 years, the illustrations had been fighting such elements as hungry rodents, rusty paperclips and even a blizzard.

Original artwork by artists and personal friends including Peggy Bacon, Milt Gross, Isabel Bishop, and Reginald Marsh were also saved.
