Animal Rescue Friends GN – Andrews McMeel finds new homes for strays in this first collection of middle grade comics. The five included tales of found family start with a lonely girl living in the suburbs finding happiness with a stray pit bull. A protective mama ferret and her six kits learn to trust a shelter volunteer, while a shy boy stands up for himself with the help of a strong-willed bunny. A cantankerous cat helps to mend a troubled relationship and the shelter’s unofficial mascot finally finds a home. These stories show that a friendly face, furry or otherwise, can be found for any stray.
Kirby Manga Mania Volume 1 GN – Viz Media continues to release manga of long-time favorite video game characters. This time, everyone’s favorite pink puff gets to gobble up some fun. Jump into Dream Land with Kirby as he teams up with his friends as they go on zany adventures and try to keep arch-frenemy King Dedede in line. Take a deep breath and hop on in for tons of yummy hijinks! This volume includes comics from the 1990s as well as new content from creator Hirokazu Hikawa.
