They Called Us Enemy (Top Shelf)—GEM OF THE MONTH

George Takei, Justin Eisinger & Steven Scott (w) • Harmony Becker (a & c)

In a stunning graphic memoir, Takei revisits his haunting childhood in American concentration camps, as one of over 100,000 Japanese Americans imprisoned by the U.S. government during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon—and America itself—in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love.

LOAC Essentials, Vol. 13: Charlie Chan, 1938

Alfred Andriola (w & a & c)

As a famed hero of the mystery novels by Earl Derr Biggers, Inspector Charlie Chan reached even greater heights in a series of popular movies. As actor Sidney Toler was preparing to replace Warner Oland as the wily police detective in 1938, Alfred Andriola was tapped to create a newspaper strip version of the character. The pride of the Honolulu Police Department uses his intellect more than his fists to solve cases of international intrigue, and the syndicate’s initial promotion called Charlie Chan “a new mystery strip, totally devoid of guns and gangsters” to separate it from Dick Tracy and his many hard-boiled imitators. Featuring the first complete year of daily strips, from October 1938 to November 1939, this volume offers readers exciting adventures, snappy dialogue, and arresting art.

Nocturne: The Walled City Trilogy (Book Two) (Top Shelf)

Anne Opotowsky (w) • Angie Hoffmeister (a & c)

In 1905, a child is kidnapped and brought to Hong Kong, growing into a clever and reckless young man looking for answers. In the 1930s, the British are shaping that island into the free-trade playground for which it will soon become famous… while China’s internal strife borders on chaos. The eccentricities of Hong Kong rub off on everyone, the greed is more palpable, the lust and caution herd on both the young and old.

Within the Walled City itself, the population has grown by leaps and bounds, despite attempts to clear them out. Both the British and the Chinese now declare it a lawless ghetto, a legal No Man’s Land… so the city evolves into an astonishing world of its own. In this chaotic yet harmonious world, the three boys from Book One—Song, Xi, and Yubo—are finding three very different ways to become men.

Abductions, obsessions, refugees, and star-crossed lovers intertwine throughout this staggeringly ambitious and gorgeously illustrated saga… while the undercurrents of power, manipulation, and loss begin to show terrible cracks in the walls.
