What trade should we read together for our [insert month] Comic Book of the Month? Nominate your pick here!

This month's theme is "nonfiction or memoir genre."

Titles nominated this month must be a nonfiction or memoir book. If you have any questions or concerns, please send a message to mod Kait, who is happy to help. You can find the complete 2019 theme calendar here.

Remember:
- Nominated titles must be TPB comics or original graphic novels.
- Only the first volume of a series may be nominated, unless the group has already read the previous volume(s) as a book of the month. To see what we've read, check out our group's bookshelf.
- Nominated titles cannot have the same writer as the previous month's BotM winner. This month, that's Jeff Lemire.
- Nominated titles must fit the month's theme. To see past and upcoming themes, check out the 2018 theme calendar and the 2019 theme calendar.
- Only one nomination per person.
- You can "second" a nomination in place of nominating a different book, but this will count as your nomination for the month. Seconded books will receive an additional chance of being selected in the randomization process.
- If a title you nominate wins BotM, please refrain from nominating another title for one month to give others a chance.

Nomination & Voting Schedule:
To better accommodate our increasing number of members, the nomination and voting schedule is as follows every month:

16th: Nomination forum opens
23rd: Nomination forum closes; 5 nominations are selected at random; Voting opens
30th: Voting closes

More details on our updated nomination and voting procedures can be found here.

What a fast reply! We did read March: Book One in February 2017, but we have not read March: Book Two as a group if you'd like to nominate that one instead!

Perhaps https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... is a more proper title.
