Two princesses from neighboring kingdoms find out their parents are planning to go to war, so they both escape together. The tomboyish Pira brings along her shape-shifting friend Yonder and all three set out on an adventure to reach the mystical realm of Spera. Each chapter is drawn by a different artist, and each one is amazing! A great selection of art and fun adventure against the threat to their kingdoms and their lives.
Scarlet Spider #1
by Chris Yost and Ryan Stegman
An issue with extra pages follows Kaine as he leaves New York City to find himself after Spider Island, heading to Houston where he gets involved with a human trafficking ring. When this opportunity to become a hero presents itself, he must decide how much of his own man he is and what he wishes to become.
by Joshua Luna
One of the Luna Brothers breaks off on his own to tell the tale of a selfish man with OCD who suddenly discovers that he can leave his body and travel as a spirit to his friends and family. This power allows him to manipulate their choices, will he develop his powers or attempt to meddle too much in their lives? Great art similar to their mutual art style but a nice different look.
