In the conclusion to Ngozi Ukazu’s mega-popular webcomic, Check, Please!: Sticks and Scones, Eric Bittle not only has new teammates – he has a brand new boyfriend! Bitty and Jack must navigate their new, secret, long-distance relationship, and decide how to reveal their relationship to friends and teammates. It’s two full hockey seasons packed with big wins and high stakes!
Gene Luen Yang understands stories – comic book stories, in particular. But Yang doesn’t get sports. He lost interest in basketball long ago, but at the high school where he now teaches, it’s all anyone can talk about. The men’s varsity team, the Dragons, is having a phenomenal season that’s been decades in the making. What he doesn’t know yet is that this season is not only going to change the Dragons’ lives, but his own life as well, in Dragon Hoops.
