Paprika is a successful businesswoman, a New Yorker of Italian origin. Job and career consume her, forcing her to neglect her personal needs as well as her friends and family. Her heart is broken from a previous relationship and its consequences, and a rigid upbringing has made her a very introverted person. She wants a romantic relationship, but she doesn't know what she's doing. Not like Dill, a na ve and suave delivery boy with an angelic attitude, handsome, and always surrounded by beautiful women falling for him. He doesn't have a worry in the world, and this makes Paprika very nervous. But he's the guy who could help her with her feelings (and with... sex). Bridget Jones's Diary meets Sex and the City, with a pinch of The Devil Wears Prada in the new international hit by acclaimed creator MIRKA ANDOLFO (UNNATURAL, MERCY).

The fourth installment in the #1 New York Times-bestselling Adventure Zone graphic novel series, a hilarious meta-fictional D&D adventure story based on a smash hit podcast.
When a desperate call for help interrupts the holiday celebrations at the Bureau of Balance, Taako, Magnus and Merlea are sent out after their fourth target for deadly relic Reclaiming: a powerful transmutation stone, hidden somewhere in the depths of a floating arcane laboratory that's home to the Doctors Maureen and Lucas Miller. An unknown menace has control of the stone and is using it to turn the lab into a virulent pink crystal that spreads to everything it touches. It's only a matter of time before this sparkling disaster crash-lands, but in order to find the stone and save the whole planet from being King Midased, our heroes will have to fight their way through a gauntlet of rowdy robots and crystal golems, figure out if they can trust the evasive Lucas Miller, and solve the mystery of what -- or who -- has put them in peril, all before there's no world left to save.
Based on the blockbuster podcast where the McElroy brothers and their dad play a tabletop RPG and illustrated by cartooning powerhouse Carey Pietsch, The Adventure Zone: Crystal Kingdom takes this #1 New York Times Bestselling series to glittering new heights.

FIRST SECOND BOOKS
(W) Jordan Morris, Sarah Morgan (A/CA) Tony Cliff
An adult graphic novel with a hilarious and satirical take on the "gig economy" as the residents of Fairhaven constantly hire the nearest monster hunter to keep their lives somewhat peaceful and intact.
Based on the smash-hit audio serial, Bubble is a hilarious high-energy graphic novel with a satirical take on the "gig economy."
Built and maintained by corporate benevolence, the city of Fairhaven is a literal bubble of safety and order (and amazing coffee) in the midst of the Brush, a harsh alien wilderness ruled by monstrous Imps and rogue bands of humans. Humans like Morgan, who's Brush-born and Bubble-raised and fully capable of fending off an Imp attack during her morning jog. She's got a great routine going-she has a chill day job, she recreationally kills the occasional Imp, then she takes that Imp home for her roommate and BFF, Annie, to transform into drugs as a side hustle. But cracks appear in her tidy life when one of those Imps nearly murders a delivery guy in her apartment, accidentally transforming him into a Brush-powered mutant in the process. And when Morgan's company launches Huntr, a gig economy app for Imp extermination, she finds herself press-ganged into kicking her stabby side job up to the next level as she battles a parade of monsters and monstrously Brush-turned citizens, from a living hipster beard to a book club hive mind.
