Ostensibly to celebrate my mother’s 70th birthday earlier in the month, we had a week in the city, visiting local sites like Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the National Gallery, the Tower of London, and the British Museum.

  • This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki
  • Giant Days (Vol. 1) by John Allison
  • Zero (Vol. 1) by Ales Kot and others
  • Bitch Planet (Vol. 2) by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro
  • March (Book Two) by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell
  • Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea by Sarah Pinsker
