Over the Garden Wall Hollow Town 1 Over The Garden Wall Hollow Town #1 – Boom! Studios starts a new Over the Garden Wall mini-series. Wirt, Greg, Beatrice, and the frog are traveling by raft down the river, when the not-so-well-made craft falls apart, causing Greg to lose a shoe. In order to get Greg a new pair, Wirt has to find work in a small town inhabited entirely by eerie porcelain doll-people. He takes a job babysitting some doll-children, but it may cause Wirt to stay in the town forever. Over the Garden Wall continues to delight readers by being weird, creepy and fun.

Junior High HorrorsJunior High Horrors #1 – Keenspot Entertainment gets an early start on the spooky season with it’s new all ages series. Junior High can be very scary, especially if your different. Everyday can seem like a scene from a horror movie, like it does for JV, Mikey, Nancy and Laurie. JV doesn’t care for school, nor does he like the awkward conversations he has with his momma. Laurie finds Mikey outside poking at creatures, while Nancy and her imaginary friend Frederick deal with the mean girls of the school. But at least they can look forward to the trip to King Stephen’s Petting Zoo. Junior High Horrors re-imagines horror icons Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger as 12-year-olds in the most frightening environment anyone can image: Junior High. It will delight kids and adults alike.
