    ANGELIC #1 is a stellar opening issue for a story of flying monkeys and armored dolphins. With themes surrounding gender roles and autonomy, don't let ANGELIC's cartoony art deter you. This is a must-read comic for speculative fiction fans. Read Full Review

That goes for the other two books that I mentioned in the beginning, I may not love the genres or the setting, but I'll still give them a try because you don't know until you read it yourself.

We just need to make sure that the target audience actually enters a comic book shop. Read Full Review
