Ava’s Demon, Book One: Reborn | Exclusive Preview
Today, Good Comics for Kids readers are getting the first look at a new preview of Ava’s Demon, by Michelle Fus, which will be published by Skybound Comet in next year (Skybound is part of Image Comics). The story, which began as a webtoon, is about a shy girl, Ava, who has been haunted all her life by a demon named Wrathia. In the sequence below, Ava learns, as she is dying, who Wrathia is and what her mission was, and she makes a deal with Wrathia to get a second chance at life—provided she allies with Wrathia to wreak revenge on her enemies. Sounds pretty chill, right? The story is rated for grades 7-9 and is scheduled for publication in May 2023. Enjoy!
