The first run of Doctor Mirage was so wonderful and so interesting!! I’m thrilled to see it back. This is a book that has gotten so many people into comics. Shan and Hwen, occult investigators and lovers, have been reunited, but Hwen is still in spirit form. They’re back from the underworld, but their troubles are far from over. Now they have to return Hwen to his human form without causing any further chaos. Also, Shan’s hair is super cool.
The Paybacks #4
Publisher: DARK HORSE COMICS
(W) Donny Cates, Eliot Rahal (A/CA) Geoff Shaw
Superheroes in debt trying to catch other superheroes in debt. It sounds like a disaster and it is, but a very entertaining disaster! We’ve never really thought about the financial implications of being a hero until this series came along.

If you’re anything like me, you’re still in a sci-fi frenzy after the Star Wars hype of the weekend. Arcadia is a great place to further your appreciation of the future and marvel at the ways technology may change our lives. It could be just the thing to fill that galaxy shaped hole in your heart until you can make it back to the theater for the twenty-fourth time.
Princeless: Make Yourself #0

Princeless is a stellar all ages comic that is full of much needed diversity and feminism. It makes me so happy to recommend this book to parents who come into the comic store looking for the perfect gift for their children. It’s powerful and fun, without being preachy and I’m extra excited because this new arc looks like it’s going to explore the importance of introspection.
