The Picks:

MIghty Jack 2Mighty Jack Volume 2 Mighty Jack And The Goblin King GN – First Second releases the second volume in the very fun Mighty  Jack series. After fighting off the wild creatures set loose in the garden, Jack’s kid sister Maddy is kidnapped and carried off to a world beyond the vines and stalks. Jack and his neighbor Lilly follow after her to a land where giants that grind the bones of human children to feed their beasts in a castle up above and a fearsome goblin king rules down below. Lilly’s bag of concoctions and tricks, and Jack’s heroics may not be enough to succeed. The first volume of Mighty Jack was a great take on the Jack the Giant Killer fairy tale, and the twists just keep coming in this second volume. Excitement and adventure awaits!

Star Wars Force AwakensStar Wars The Force Awakens GN – IDW Publishing releases the first volume in their new Star Wars series. Return to the galaxy-spanning action as new characters Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and  BB-8 join old favorites Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbaca, and the Resistance race against Kylo Ren and the dark forces of the First Order to find the last jedi knight Luke Skywalker. Experience Episode VII with the streamlined designs of Disney animation, just in time for the new movie coming out in theaters later this year. It’s a must read for long time fans and a great introduction for newcomers.
