Hugo and World Fantasy Award-winning author G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel, Wonder Woman) and Eisner winning artist Christian Ward (Black Bolt) team up for this epic new sci-fi saga! In a small solar system in a far-flung galaxy, two women–one a young religious acolyte and the other, a hard-bitten freighter pilot–uncover a conspiracy between the leaders of the most dominant religion and an all-consuming mega-corporation. On the run from reprisals on both sides, this unlikely pair must decide where their loyalties lie–and risk plunging the world into anarchy if they reveal the truth.
LaGuardia (Best Graphic Album – Reprint)
Written by Nnedi Okorafor, Hugo and Nebula award- winning author and the writer of Marvel’s Shuri, this deluxe trade paperback collects issues #1-#4 of the mini-series and includes artist sketches and afterword from the author. In an alternate world where aliens have integrated with society, pregnant Nigerian- American doctor Future Nwafor Chukwuebuka has just smuggled an illegal alien plant named Letme Live through LaGuardia International and Interstellar Airport… and that’s not the only thing she’s hiding. She and Letme become part of a community of human and alien immigrants; but as their crusade for equality continues and the birth of her child nears, Future– and her entire world– begins to change.

They Called Us Enemy (Best Reality-Based Work)
George Takei has captured hearts and minds worldwide with his captivating stage presence and outspoken commitment to equal rights.
