House Of The Black Spot GN – Koyama Press releases the next chapter in the Double+ duo’s adventures. Plus Man and Hank travel to Hank’s childhood home after learning that Hank’s Uncle Bill is dead. While investigating Uncle Bill’s death, they discover that sometimes greed can extend beyond the grave as they rile up a ghost with a knack for real estate. He and some revolting real estate developers are bent on destroying the idyllic Gear Town by evicting long time residents and turning their properties into weekend rentals for rich people. Plus Man and Hank must stop this ghastly gentrification and the most frightful sight of all: condos! Ben Sears’ Double+ series balances between kids and adults with a clever sense of humor and rich themes that both can enjoy.
White Snake HC – Toon Graphics brings a lesser known Grimm Brother’s Fairy Tale to life. Young Randall dreams of adventures until one day he’s sent off on a mission to discover the neighboring king’s secret. Upon his return, instead of a reward, he is thrown into the dungeon. His only hope for freedom comes in the guise of Princess Tilda, who entices him to compete for her hand. Randall will need to call up all his courage, determination, and Tilda’s trust in him to survive a dive for a ring at the bottom of the ocean, and search for the Golden Apple from the Tree of Life to prove himself worth of Tilda’s hand. Creator Ben Nadler has turned this timeless tale into a modern version that will resonate and delight today’s young readers.
