Doctor Who, Dracula, and More! New Graphic Novels in the Abbot Public Library E-Collections

There are several new and upcoming graphic novel releases this Spring! Just released is Joe Harris’ Vampirella vs. Dracula, a time-tossed epic of love, hate, death, and damnation. Also out is Richard Marazano’s SAM, Volume 4. With the help of their robot ally SAM, Ian, and his friends hope to reach the command centre of the machines who have hunted and killed almost all of mankind. For fans of Chuck Palahnuik’s 1996 novel Fight Club, the author has brought us a sequel to his 2016 graphic novel, Fight Flub 2, with Fight Club 3. Comicon.com describes it as “everything that a sequel to a sequel should be. It elevates the dark themes of the novel and the first graphic novel to the next illogical, insanely violent step.”

Doctor Who fans will be pleased with the release of Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor, Year Two as the Weeping Angels are trying to break into the TARDIS! Autons are ready to attack the streets of 1969 London. Now, Ten and Thirteen must risk a deadly paradox in order to stop the Earth from becoming an alien battleground! Another new release is Ryan Parott’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Volume 11. Fans will get answers—and more shocking secrets—about what happened to the team after they defeated Lord Drakkon. In Issue 5 of Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia, Adler has vanished, Mycroft has closed the case, and Sherlock is left feeling empty and deflated. While the others celebrate Christmas, Sherlock struggles with unanswered questions. 

Two stunning nonfiction graphic novels that have just been released are Scott Chantler’s Bix and Ashley Molesso’s The Gay Agenda: A Modern Queer History & Handbook. Told in beautiful illustrations, Bix explores the rapid rise and tragic fall of 1920s legendary jazz soloist Leon “Bix” Beiderbecke, one of the most innovative soloists next to Louis Armstrong. The Gay Agenda is a joyful celebration of the LGBTQ+ community’s development, history, and culture that is packed with facts, trivia, timelines, charts, and 100 full-color illustrations. This book is perfect for older generations, younger generations, and is a helpful introduction for those learning more about the community.
