Cautionary Fables And Fairytales Volume 5 Woman In The Woods And Other North American Stories GN – Iron Circus Comics continues their reimagining of folk tales from around the world. The plains and forests of North America are alive with ancient stories from tribes spanning the continent. Loup Garrou, trickster rabbits and spirits with names that can’t be spoken are some of the characters featured in this anthology. These updated takes are bursting with thrilling, chilling and most of all, inspiring tales told by up-and-coming Native American talents. Fans of mythology will not want to miss this volume.
Aru Shah And The End Of Time GN – From the Rick Riordan Presents line, here’s a story featuring mythology from the subcontinent of India. Aru Shah has a tendency to stretch the truth in order to fit in at school. When three schoolmates show up on her doorstep, she gets caught in a lie. She tries to get out of her predicament by taking on the dare that an artifact in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture, where her archaeologist mother works, is cursed. She lights the Lamp of Bharata, hoping to get out of this mess, and vows never to fib again. Instead, she frees the Sleeper, an ancient demon whose duty is to awaken the God of Destruction. With her classmates and mother frozen in time, it’s up to Aru to find the reincarnations of the five legendary Pandava brothers. As protagonists of the Hindu epic poem, the Mahabharata, they are the only ones able to journey through the Kingdom of Death to stop him. This graphic novel adapts the popular middle grade novel of the same name.
