Hero Within: I Am Heroic #1 – Ape Entertainment just keeps the new titles coming! In this new mini-series, the discovery of a mysterious smart phone app allows small-town kids Jordan, Topher, and Karly to become the heroes from their favorite comic book series. But where there are heroes, there are bound to be villains! Filled with bravery and heroism, Hero Within is a tale that all ages can enjoy. And by combining two things kids like — comics and smart phone apps — this is a series sure to please.
Adventure Time: Marceline and The Scream Queens #1 – The girls from Adventure Time get their own spin-off mini-series! Princess Bubblegum, with a new-found interest in music, joins Marceline’s paranormal rock band for a tour across the land of Ooo. In order to make it to the raddest gig ever, they must overcome obstacles such as scenesters and beasts born of self-doubt. This title is meant for girls, as it is written, drawn, and features covers by prominent female artists, but boys should enjoy it too.
