In this engaging graphic novel, Nebula Award winning sci-fi author Okorafor wittily turns New York City’s LaGuardia Airport into LaGuardia Interplanetary Airport and into a pointed allegorical indictment of the U.S.’s current bigoted anti-immigrant policies. Set in a future in which Nigeria has welcomed and benefited from extraterrestrial immigration (although not without conflict), Nigerian-American doctor Future Nwafor Chukwuebuka flees from Lagos to New York where she grew up. She is pregnant but she is also smuggling an intelligent plant-like alien species—a refugee, in other words—that is on the run from warring factions of its own kind. Okorafor has captured the absurdity and calamity of our current political moment and her artist cocreators capure it all in vividly rendered and richly colored drawings. LaGuardia by Nnedi Okorafor and artists Tana Ford and James Devlin will be published in July by Dark Horse/Berger Books.
