Now you can read the history of your favorite Fraggles with this new reprinting of the original series, digitally remastered and collected in this first trade. Stories include “The Magic Time Machine,” “The Trouble with Being #1,” “The Monster That Could Be Anything” and “The Doozer Who WAnted to Be a Fraggle.” Old and new fans alike will enjoy the return of this classic series.
Twin Spica, Volume 11 – Vertical prepares to bring another series in for a landing. Asumi’s journey to become an astronaut is coming to an end as graduation looms over her and her friends. In their final days at the Tokyo Space School, many of the teens take the opportunity to finally share long hidden feelings and settle a few difference. And with Japan’s first student astronaut being selected, will Asumi’s life long dream finally come true? Asumi’s journey has been great to follow, and it’s almost sad to see the end so close in sight. No tween collection should be without this title.
