The excitement I feel at the end of every year as I look toward all the great books coming out next year is unlike any other. I mean, new books? To add to my TBR? Pure dopamine. It doesn’t matter that my TBR keeps getting longer and I can never hope to keep up. That’s what denial is for. (No, kidding, but seriously don’t let yourself get too hung up on stuff like there. There are way more books in existence already than you can ever hope to read, so just enjoy all the books you do read. Your brain will explode otherwise.)
So if you, like me, are just waiting for that rush when you see all the great new books coming out in the new year, I have really great news for you. Because we are in for a real treat, especially when it comes to graphic novels. I don’t remember the last time I had this many comics and graphic novels I was looking forward to in the coming year. Maybe never. But the comic book gods have truly blessed us because these 2022 releases look unbelievably good. Don’t believe me? Just check out these 12 2022 comics and graphic novels. Your TBR will thank me.
FOX AND HARE BY JONATHAN TSUEI, STACEY LEE, AND YOSHI YOSHITANI
In true cyberpunk fashion, Fox and Hare tells the story of Aurora Yi, a black market coder accidentally uncovers data kept by an evil megacorporation on citizens’ past lives. Now that corporation wants its data back, and Aurora turns to the city’s most feared mercenaries, Fox and Hare, for protection. Tsuei has said that the project is a way for Asian audiences to reclaim “the aesthetics of cyberpunk,” since the genre’s origins stemmed, in part, from anti-Asian sentiment in the 1980s.
