What if Magical Girls weren't Earth's champions at all?

Aoe, Thel, and Gen, better known as the Lovely Trio, first burst onto the scene five years ago when they saved Earth from a surprise space monster attack!

Since then, everyone, including Gigi, whose brother died as a bystander in a Lovely Trio battle, idolizes them as superheroic pop icons.

But when Gigi witnesses the Lovely Trio battling a monster firsthand, she sees something that causes her to question everything she thought she ever knew about her heroes!

    Save Yourself #1may not be completely clear about what it's about yet, but it's certainly clear about what kind of comic it will be, and I'm very much here for it. This highly chaotic first issue has me hooked on the characters as well as what seems to lie beneath the surface. Read Full Review
