Staff Picks: Books

Tomboy Vol. 1 by M. Goodwin

Tomboy Vol. 1: Divine Intervention is a graphic novel written and illustrated by M. Goodwin. If her name sounds familiar to you, it's because she has also contributed to the graphic novel Princeless, which I recommended via staff picks last year. Tomboy, however, while possessing a female protagonist as Princeless did, is decidedly not for kids. This fast-moving book combines corrupt cops, blood-soaked violence, personal tragedy, and a delightful dose of the supernatural with thoughtful art and expressive color work. The story begins on Addison's 16th birthday, which turns into a birthday unlike any other. This first volume collects issues 1-4 and is available through Hoopla. Volume 2 (Tomboy: Absence of Good) can also be found there, containing issues 5-8. The ninth issue came out in December 2016, which leads me to believe there is more to come. If you love graphic novels, then add Tomboy to your reading list.
