Educator, software designer, graphic novel enthusiast, regular novel enthusiast, and poet, Andrew Ek joins Adam to suggest a few atypical gift ideas for whichever holiday strikes your fancy.
2:00 We don't quite succeed in not talking at all about "Saga" by Brian K Vaughan
03:06 - "Alex + Ada" by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaugn for sci-fi fans who may not have gotten into graphic novels yet.
07:13 - Cece Bell's "El Deafo" is an all ages book for people who like books about people with disabilities where the disability is a part of the main character but not the driving force of the narrative.
09:46 - Jillian and Mariko Tamaki's "This One Summer" is a teenage focused book for people who enjoy literary graphic novels that don't follow typical comic book tropes.
12:15 - "Drama" by Raina Telgemeier has been put on the banned books list for including a queer teenage character. We recommend it for all ages, especially for adults who still hold on to the books they loved in high school.
