Scarlet Rose 1 Scarlet Rose Volume 1 – Papercutz releases a new historical adventure for their Charmz imprint. Maud’s happy life with her father ends suddenly when he is murdered and she is whisked away by her rich and lordly grandfather. He wants to give her a home and help her become a real lady, but on his terms — no more sword fighting. But Maud wants revenge. Inspired by a dashing highwayman known as the Fox, she becomes the Scarlet Rose, taking up her sword to fight for justice and find the man who killed her father. Scarlet Rose gives readers swashbuckling action with a female lead that blends thrills with grounded, emotional characterization. Tweens will delight in this title.

Space BatSpacebat And The Fugitives Volume 1 Tacos At The End Of The World – IDW Publishing introduces the galaxy’s newest hero. Spacebat, armed with his space blade, battles any and all robots who come to face him. When he meets three children who need his help, the galaxy’s greatest misfit is pressed into service to battle not just robots, but also psychics, and even the very laws of nature to stop a mad scientist and his army of ill-mannered robots. But can they handle the worst of them all, a universe-bending machine?! Combining quirky characters with sci-fi adventure, and of course, tacos, makes this title a must for any graphic novel shelf.
