Lavender Scare by Arantza Peña Popo. $15, 40 pages, 3 color riso. 

This is a beautifully produced riso comic with some extremely skillful drawing, which the lavish printing does justice too. Popo brings us an adventure story/allegory of, in the authors words "a young teen girl escaping from a lavender petal monster. Filled with action, gay petals, and self-acceptance, this zine is an allegory for my own journey with my queer identity." A work of art in cartooning and presentation.
