Our preview is a bit late this week, but it’s worth the wait: We have the first ten pages of the WordGirl graphic novel, based on the Emmy-winning TV show of the same name. WordGirl dominated Kids’ Day of NYCC a few years ago, and now she has her own comic, WordGirl: Coalition of Malice, written by Chris Karwowski and illustrated by Steve Young and Pat Lapierre. It goes on sale on Wednesday in comics shops, but you can start reading now right here!
