The Bakers: Do These Toys Belong Somewhere? collects Kyle #Baker’s family-oriented #cartoons. The family’s based on his own, with dreadlocked daddy, organized mommy, and three adorable kids, but the #humor is universal. The book’s subjects are lightweight — avoiding waking up the kids, trying to get a photo where they all look good, problems with the Tooth Fairy — but hilarious. The book is easy to pick up and put down, and it’ll be just as funny when it’s re-read months or years from now.

need a good book for your 9 - 12 year olds? Here are 24 series that kids LOVE.

#Astroidjani (Astro-goers) by Zeljko #Pahek - a masterpiece by the famous Yugoslavian author Zeljko Pahek, published in 1981 in the then prestigious STRIP ART magazine. It exudes charming anarchic crossing of Alan Ford, Alien, the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Asterix and is packed with black humor, insane action and aggressive parodying of everything and anything. A true lost gem.

25 Essential Graphic Novels

American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang This full-color, glossy graphic novel is a striking take on Chinese-American identity, weaving together three perspectives: Chinese folk character Monkey King; Jin Wang, a middle school student who wants desperately to assimilate; and Danny, an All-American student shamed by his Chinese cousin, the unfortunately-named Chin-Kee. Its deliberate stereotypes are uncomfortable, but they raise interesting questions about race in America.

Review: Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth by Chris Ware

Chris #Ware - Jimmy #Corrigan, the smartest kid on Earth - This is a finely crafted, complex book that gets better with every chapter: Ware seems to have matured both as an artist and a person in the years it took to complete. While so many similar projects are little more than strings of striking images, Jimmy Corrigan forces you to pause, flick back a few pages and read again, rewarding you with another insight. It is a rare and uplifting example of an artistic vision pushed to the limits.
