June 8, 2021 Book Releases and Reviews

It’s June 8, and there are some great new comic and non-fiction releases we want to share with you.

Renegade Rule by Ben Kahn, Rachel Silverstein, and Sam Beck (Illustrator)


An adorable graphic novel about a group of gamer girls competing in Renegade Rule, the biggest deal competition for pro gamers around. I only wish it was longer. Full of friendship, family, video games, and crushes.

Unwell Women: Misdiagnosis and Myth in a Man-Made World by Elinor Cleghorn


This books works its way through history to lay out the misinformation and bias against women in Western medicine has and continues to affect the way women are treated and diagnosed with disease. At lot of this history is brutal. Terrible things have been done particularly to BIPOC, disabled, and poor women throughout history, and this book does not shy away from that truth.

This book isn’t an easy read, but it’s an important one.

An Atlas of Extinct Countries by Gideon Defoe


This was an entertaining read about the, frequently short, lives of extinct countries. I enjoyed learning more about these countries through history and the circumstances that lead to their creation and downfall.

We’re also excited to check out Rabbits by Terry Miles, Love and Other Natural Disasters by Misa Sugiura, and The Queer Principles of Kit Webb by Cat Sebastian. What books are you most excited to check out today? Let us know in a comment or on social media.
