You Must Take Part in Revolution, by Melissa Chan and Badiucao (on sale 6/4/24) — From acclaimed journalist Melissa Chan and esteemed Chinese dissident artist Badiucao comes a near-future graphic novel dystopia that explores technology, authoritarian government, and the lengths that one will go to in the fight for freedom.
