Ham Helsing Volume 1 Vampire Hunter GN – Crown Books for Young Readers jumps into the adventures of a famous family of vampire-hunting pigs. Ham Helsing is the descendant of a long line of adventurers and monster hunters. While his brother Chad carries on the family legacy of leaping before looking, Ham prefers to be the odd pig out by painting or writing poetry instead of inventing dangerous new ways to catch dangerous creatures. When Chad dies, however, it’s up to Ham to carry on. He is given his first assignment and reluctantly goes to hunt a vampire. He soon learns that people aren’t always what they seem, and having a good team around you will help to save your bacon. Middle grade readers will enjoy this hilarious first volume.
Tea Dragon Tapestry HC – Oni Press releases the heartwarming conclusion to the award-winning Tea Dragon series. Greta and Minette return as they go on a journey of self-discovery and healing to become and accept who they are. Greta struggles with Ginseng’s continued mourning while also trying to create something to impress a master blacksmith in search of an apprentice, leading her to question the true meaning of crafting and caring for someone in grief. Meanwhile, Minette, after receiving a package from the monastery where she once trained as a prophetess, is thrown into confusion about her path in life, but finds as she opens her heart more to others, the more clearly she can see what was always inside. Readers will continue to be charmed by the heartfelt story of purpose, love and growth.
