I love comics and graphic novels, so what do I do with that love? Well, I turn it into a new feature!
From Panel to Panel is a new feature where I talk about the awesome (and perhaps not-so awesome) comic books and graphic novels I’ve read. Basically, this will be me pushing them onto your laps. You’re welcome.
September has a few comics I’m very excited for. You get graphic novels about strange creatures like guardian spirits and man-animal hybrids on an asteroid, a cop on the moon, a sarcastic teenager in plaid with cupid powers, and much more!
Get your shopping carts loaded with all these comics!
|MIRROR: THE MOUNTAIN TP|
A mysterious asteroid hosts a collection of strange creatures – man-animal hybrids, mythological creatures made flesh, guardian spirits, cursed shadows – and the humans who brought them to life. But this strange society exists in an uneasy truce, in the aftermath of uprisings seeking freedom and acceptance, that have only ended in tragedy. As the ambitious, the desperate and the hopeful inhabitants of the asteroid struggle to decide their shared fate, a force greater than either animal or human seems to be silently watching the conflict, waiting for either side to finally answer the question: what is worthy of being human?
EMMA RíOS (PRETTY DEADLY, ISLAND) and HWEI LIM (LALAGE, HERO) present MIRROR: THE MOUNTAIN, the first arc of a story about the mage-scientists of The Synchronia and the sentient animals of Irzah colony. — Image Comics

Why I’m excited: Lots of “strange creatures—man-animal hybrids, mythological creatures made flesh, guardian spirits, cursed shadows—“ will inhabit this society, struggling with humans for freedom and acceptance. Oh my god, can you just imagine it? Emma Rios, the artist of Pretty Deadly, is also writing this comic, so I’m excited to see how she tells this awesome sounding story, and how Hwei Lim illustrates it.
