Blastosaurus #0 – Golden Apple Books reboots New Zealand’s top-selling indy comic from the last 10 years. Blastosaurus is a six foot tall mutant triceratops who lives in Freak Out City. With his two precocious 12-year old side-kicks, he investigates all the weird things that go on in the city. Together they battle and befriend an octopus and a ghost, take on robots and monster dogs from another dimension, sentient plant armies, and evil corporations experimenting on unwilling demons, all the while trying to answer the question, where did Blastosaurus come from? This issue is a prequel and sets up the new reboot. It’s perfect for fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hellboy, and Gravity Falls.

Sampson brings something special to school for show-and-tell, but Aziza just wants everyone to be quiet and do their work. And Penny, who is very sleepy because she has a new baby brother at home, goes missing! Class with Mr. Wolf will be anything but boring! This funny and vibrant series captures the up and downs of a fourth-grade classroom, and will capture reader’s hearts.
