With well known creators such as Gail Simone and Jason Ho providing stories for this book, it’s sure to tickle the funny bone. Kids and adults will no doubt love this issue, and the mask.
Amazing Agent Luna Volume 9 GN – Seven Seas releases the ninth volume in what is probably the longest running OEL manga to date! Luna Collins, the genetically engineered super spy, is missing. The rogue agency known as Knightfall has lured her away from the Agency that trained her. Welcomed by open arms, Luna has left behind everything and everyone she holds dear. It’s now up to her friends and family to bring her back from the dark side before it’s too late. Amazing Agent Luna is one of the very few US created manga-inspired titles to still being going. It, along with its spin-off Amazing Agent Jennifer, has shown that good writing and art are just as important as country of origin. This title is a must for any tween/teen or graphic novel collection.
