Parable of the Sower - Octavia E. Butler, Damian Duffy, John Jennings
After the success of their graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler’s Kindred, Duffy and Jennings are back with the afrofuturist novelist’s seminal dystopia Parable of the Sower. Set in a precarious 2024, where borders are closed, streets are dangerous, and environmental collapse is an inescapable reality, the story follows Lauren Olamina as she navigates an increasingly hostile world, her gift (and curse) of hyperempathy, and her nascent religion Earthseed. With bold colours and an introduction by Nalo Hopkinson, this breakneck adaptation does all the justice required to Butler’s iconic, and prescient, masterpiece.

Show Them a Good Time - Nicole Flattery
Called “agonizingly funny” by Sally Rooney, Flattery’s short story collection is populated by women who refuse to remain in their allotted roles, be it celebrity’s girlfriend, widower’s second wife, or lecherous professor’s student.
