Four volumes of Lumbarjanes, the quirky graphic novel series featuring a gal gang of four Lumberjane scouts, written and illustrated by an all-female creative team, are now available. Read the Nerdist review here and the MarySue review here.

Paper Girls, created by Brian K. Vaughn, is a nostalgia-filled romp coming-of-age – except it’s not a romp, and the characters who are coming of age are not boys, but girls. Yup. Girl Power. It’s a “Stand By Me” and “War of the Worlds” mash-up. Which is Epic.

My favorite Marvel hero, the Merc with a Mouth, is featured in two “new” (“new” as in: new to the library) Teens collection – “End of an Error” and “Deadpool vs. Sabretooth.” Because you can never have enough Deadpool in your life.

zombies-vs-unicorns-cover “Zombies vs. Unicorns” by Justine Larbalestier and Holly Black is a hilarious take on which fantasy being is the more awesome of the two. According to the BBC review, “whether you are a fan of relentless shambling or rainbow flatulence, you won’t be disappointed.” Read a review here.
