Think Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. Think Fun Home if your protagonist was a woman of colour. Think Fun Home if Fun Home was written by a transgender woman of colour. Bishak Som's clean artwork is reminiscent of Chris Ware with powerful autobiographical storytelling reminiscent of Alison Bechdel, but in my opinion, better. This is a great comic that combines living a life, but also, a great representation of what it can feel like to make a graphic novel, losing the ones you love, making mistakes, and discovering who you are. -CP
