Dodo GN – Boom! Studios takes readers on a journey of discovery with a lonely girl and an extinct bird. Laila doesn’t understand why her life has changed after her parents get a divorce. Her mother has no time for her and her father never comes around anymore. Lonely and confused, Laila befriends a bird in the park near her home, a Dodo named Ralph. Through their new found friendship, Ralph takes Laila on a journey and shows her things about her world she never noticed before. Felipe Nunes, inspired by works by Pixar and Ghibli Studio, has crafted a story that readers of all ages will enjoy and that every age level can take away something different. (Editor’s note: We interviewed Felipe Nunes when this book was announced last year.)
My Little Pony Ponyville Mysteries #1 – IDW Publishing gives the Cutie Mark Crusaders their own miniseries. Apple Bloom, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle try to take a break from the weirdness after befriending Lilymoon by volunteering at the local hospital. But the mysteries they were trying to escape follow them. Someone has been stealing supplies from the hospital, and if Nurse Redheart doesn’t find out who’s responsible, she may lose her job. But the Cutie Mark Crusaders step up to help her out and solve work to solve the mystery. This comic is a sister series to the popular “My Little Pony: Ponyville Mysteries” prose books, so fans can get a double dose of mystery-solving fun!
