Rae’s Recs, June 16

Welcome all, to this week’s Rae’s Recs! This small, weekly comic recommendation posts every Thursday and I’ll be doing my best to bring you some cool titles you may not have noticed on your first go-round on New Comic Book Day! I recommend two of my favorite single issues for the week, one or two graphic novels or trade comics from the past few weeks, and then two all-ages comics.

Head Canons: Star Trek TOS

First in a new series.

There is no way to overstate how much of a Trekkie I was when I was a kid. But by the end of HS, I was already discovering Buffy, and by the end of college I had my feet planted firmly in many fandoms, and Star Trek was then, for a time, relegated to a fond childhood memory and my gateway fandom.
