Reading Roundup Wrapup: April 2018

Pick of the month: My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, Book One by Emil Ferris. Well, this was easy. I don't know if it'll get my top spot in the Best Graphic Story Hugo category because it's not actually science fiction or fantasy, but it is excellent, a coming-of-age graphic novel about a poor horror fan in 1960s Chicago. The book is enormous, and all of it done in what I think is ballpoint pen on looseleaf, and it's beautiful. Ferris's command of the visual form of comics is strong.
