Happy New Year! [confetti] [cheering] [dancing in the streets]
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s turn our attention to all the new books that are coming out this year! [MORE CONFETTI] [MORE CHEERING] [MORE DANCING IN THE STREETS]
Okay, I promise it’s really all out of my system now…
Anyway, it looks like 2015 may be a very exhilarating year! It’s certainly starting off with a burst of adrenaline and a bunch of danger — check out these three epic adventures that come out this month:
The Zodiac Legacy by Stan Lee, Stuart Moore, and Andie Tong
This new graphic novel series is co-created by the man behind many Marvel superheroes. In these stories, twelve magical superpowers are unleashed on the world, and it’s up to a Chinese-America teen to fight against a ruthless organization of villains trying to track down the powers of the Zodiac.
