Marvel Her-Oes #1 – Marvel stars up a new all ages title, this time, feature female heroes from the marvel universe…in high school.  Janet Van Dyne has discovered she has a superpower, but she has to keep it a secret from everyone at school. She must pretend to be normal and go through it all alone…or does she?  This is part of Marvel’s "Women of Marvel" initiative that they started at the beginning of the year, and features female heroes from the Avengers franchise. Since it’s also written by a female, Grace Randolph, this title has potential to really appeal to female readers, young and old.

Benny and Penny In The Toy Breaker – Geoffrey Hayes returns with his two popular mouse siblings Benny and Penny as they face another difficult situation. Their Cousin Bo is coming to visit, and he always manages to break their toys when he plays with them.  Benny and Penny try to hide their toys and not play with Bo. The cousins must find a way to play without something getting torn, ripped or snatched away.  Hayes shows once again his skill at not just showing kids reacting authentically in realistic situations, but that he can do it in away that kids will enjoy.  This is a must for an elementary library collection.
