 Marjorie Glatt’s life hasn’t been the same ever since she discovered a group of ghosts hiding in her family’s laundromat. Wendell, who died young and now must wander the earth as a ghost with nothing more than a sheet for a body, soon became one of Marjorie’s only friends. But when Marjorie finally gets accepted by the popular kids at school, she begins to worry that if anyone learns about her secret ghost friends, she’ll be labeled as a freak who sees dead people. With Marjorie’s insistence on keeping Wendell’s ghost identity a secret from her new friends, Wendell begins to feel even more invisible than he already is.
Eliza Duncan feels invisible, too. She’s an avid photographer, and her zealous interest in finding and photographing ghosts gets her labeled as different by all the other kids in school. Constantly on the outside, Eliza begins to feel like a ghost herself.
Marjorie must soon come to terms with the price she pays to be accepted by the popular kids. Is it worth losing her friend Wendell? Is she partially to blame for the bullying Eliza endures?
Following the events of Sheets, Brenna Thummler’s second original graphic novel, Delicates, tells a powerful story about what it means to fit in, and those who are left on the outside. It shows what it’s like to feel invisible, and the importance of feeling seen. Above all, it is a story of asking for help when all seems dark, and bringing light to those who need it most.

The town of Southborough used to be a major tourism destination, drawing folks from all over the country in the hopes they’d spot the famous Sasquatch, reportedly seen in the town many times over the years. But it’s been ages since anyone’s spotted the ‘squatch, and tourism is starting to dry up. A tech company called Start-up.com (a start-up that helps people start their own start-ups) decides to begin buying up places all over town in order to build their techie headquarters, driving out all the local townspeople. Luckily, Southborough is also home to Louie O’Connor, firm believer in the Sasquatch’s existence and all-around mega ‘squatch fan. When Louie’s dads’ restaurant, Squatch Burger, starts to go under and fall prey to the techie start-up, Louie and her best friend Felix decide they’ll do whatever it takes to save the town from losing all the people and places that make it special. In hopes that convincing people the Sasquatch is real and to drive back tourism, Louie and Felix plan an elaborate hoax in hopes of saving the town from the dot-com takeover. But when Felix starts talking about leaving their hometown for college in LA, Louie will have to face some tough questions about herself, her future career, and her place in her beloved hometown. Full of humor, heart, and hilarious hijinks, Martian Ghost Centaur offers a touching story about protecting the things you love and following your passion.

Amparo’s deal with the talking cat was simple: a drop of blood and Amparo’s name in order to become a better person. Their mother and abuela would never worry about them again, and they’d finally be worthy of dating straight-A student Iolanthe. But when the cat steals their body, becoming the better person they were promised, Amparo’s spirit is imprisoned in a land of terrifying, flesh-hungry creatures known as Bright World.
With cruel and manipulative masters, and a society that feeds on memories, Amparo must use their cleverness to escape, without turning into a monster like the rest. On “the other side,” Iolanthe begins to suspect the new Amparo has a secret. After the cat-in-disguise vanishes, Iolanthe’s left to search for answers with a no-nonsense medium from the lesbian mafia – the only person who might know the truth about Bright World.

INVADER ZIM BEST OF GIR TP

NOV201432
(W) Sam Logan, Eric Trueheart, Sarah Graley (A) Warren Wucinich, Sarah Graley, Maddie C., Fred Stressing
ZIM’s defective SIR unit has long been a thorn in his side, creating more problems than he fixes. Wait, does he fix any problems at all? So…he just creates problems. What makes this little robot alien in a green dog costume tick? (Aside from, you know, the actual mechanism inside that makes him tick.)
In these four GIR-focused stories, he’s everything from infuriating to lovable. Well, not lovable to ZIM. Humans do seem to like GIR for some reason, though. Can the reason be found in the pages of this book? Eh, that’s a long shot. Can the secret recipe for Flamin’ Hot Cheezos be found in the pages of this book? Much more likely. Contains issues #22, 26, 33, and 38 of the Oni Press series Invader ZIM.
