Justin Colussy-Estes

1) What is a Glacier? by Sophie Yanow (Yanow continues to perfect the lyric essay comic)
2) Your Black Friend by Ben Passmore (Speaking of comics essays, this one is phenomenal)
3) My Favorite Thing Is Monsters by Emil Ferris (my guess is that the is the title that appears most often on this 5 for Friday)
4) The Complete Alack Sinner by Munoz &Sampayo (an old, but scarce until now, and it's mind-blowing)
5) Head Lopper or ApocalyptiGirl by Andrew MacLean (great, kinetic comics in an old, world-building-through-action kind of way)
