Diana And Nubia: Princesses Of The Amazons – DC Comics releases a new adventure featuring a young Wonder Woman. Princess Nubia is the only kid on Themyscira. She loves her mothers, her home, and all of her Amazon aunties, but she still gets lonely sometimes. Wishing things could be different, she whispers into Hera’s Ear on the night of the solstice. Walking up the next morning, she finds that they are! There’s a stranger sharing her bedroom. The interloper Diana insists that it’s her room! Their parents don’t understand, since they’ve always shared a room. Now that Nubia has this strange new sister, she has to wonder if she gets to keep her, or if she ever really wants her! This graphic novel continues the adventure started in Diana: Princess of the Amazons, this time taking on the ups and downs of having a sibling. Fans of Wonder Woman and Shannon Hale will want to pick this one up.
Kittens And Dragons: The Choukra – Van Ryder Games releases a choose-your-own-adventure-inspired comic combined with a game for young readers. Mo is the King’s youngest kitten. He sets out on a hunt for a dragon named Choukra and proves his bravery. Readers will help Mo as he sneaks through the woods, into dark caves, and past the King’s guard by solving puzzles and interacting with the fantastical environments. As Mo learns the truth about the dreaded Choukra, he will need to overcome his fears and prove to everyone just how brave he is. Young readers will enjoy reading about Mo and interacting with the story to help him on his journey.
