The fine folks at Nobrow have shared a preview of one of their latest books, Nightlights by Bogotá-based cartoonist and puppeteer Lorena Alvarez, who has done work for BOOM!’s Adventure Time books as well as for Disney and Nickelodeon.
The story revolves around a little girl who creates imaginary (maybe?) friends out of the tiny lights that appear in her room, and the new student at school, Morpie, who seems to know something about them. According to reviews, it sounds creepier than it actually is, and as you’ll see below, the artwork is absolutely gorgeous.
Top Shelf announced this week a new book by Shannon Wheeler, co-creator of God is Disappointed in You and Apocrypha Now, is tackling a topic a little less holy for his next book — Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets of Donald J. Trump.

Brian Maruca and Jim Rugg’s much-beloved “eternal underdog” returns to the printed page in April with the Street Angel: After School Kung Fu Special hardcover from Image Comics.
The graphic novel pits the homeless, seventh-grade kung fu master against the Ninja Kid and a school dance. If you’ve never read Street Angel before, fear not — just skateboard down to your local comic shop and grab a copy of the Street Angel collection from AdHouse Books, which collects her previous miniseries (originally published by SLG). And if your skateboard is broken, you can always check out her adventures online.

Reading for Resistance is a new column highlighting comics and graphic novels that shed light on issues in the news.
On Saturday, everyone was talking about refugees. Six years ago, Sarah Glidden made a journey through parts of Turkey, Iraq, and Syria with a group of independent journalists who were focusing on refugees and their situation throughout the region; they were accompanied by a veteran of the Iraq War who was recording his own reflections. Last September, Drawn and Quarterly published Glidden’s graphic memoir of that trip, Rolling Blackouts.
