Published in the US by First Look Media, The Nib uses comics to tell important non-fiction stories about the world. This latest issue is dedicated to family, and includes a wide range of documentary stories, including the tragedy of migrant children separated from their parents by the US authorities; one woman’s difficult and expensive experiences with fertility treatments; and the steady decline of the nuclear family.

Clever and affecting, The Nib focuses on personal narratives that fit within a much bigger picture, and its graphic storytelling is capable of maintaining complexity and nuance while also providing a quick and easy read. Take a look at the video above for a taste of what this issue holds, and if you like what you see, head to the Stack shop to pick up your copy while stock lasts.
