Everything is Beautiful, And I’m Not Afraid: A Baopu Collection by Yao Xiao is a delightful graphic memoir that collects comics from Baopu, Xiao’s monthly serialized webcomic, as well as new material. An illustrator and cartoonist, Xiao was born in Tianjin, China and has lived in the U.S. since 2006. Her comics capture her experiences as a young, queer immigrant striving to understand the complexities of her new life even as she grapples with the personal history that has brought her this far. In this 16-page excerpt, Xiao offers a series of thoughtful moments, sometimes comic, often poignant and inspirational, that visually distill the power of empathetic human connection. Everything is Beautiful, And I’m Not Afraid: A Baopu Collection will be published in March by Andrews McMeel Publishing.
