BRUCE: THE LITTLE BLUE SPRUCE HC
story KRISTEN SIMON, art & cover JIM VALENTINO & AVERY BUTTERWORTH

32 PAGES, FC, $9.99

Just in time for the Holidays, a children’s story for the child in all of us. All Bruce ever wanted was to be chosen by a special family to be their Christmas tree… but no one wants a BLUE Christmas tree! A heartwarming tale about accepting the differences in ourselves and in others, Bruce is a story about alienation and individuality, about prejudice and rising above it. And maybe most importantly, it’s a story about finding one’s place regardless of one’s “handicaps”.

I HATE GALLANT GIRL #1 (OF 3)
story KAT CAHILL, art & cover SETH DAMOOSE

“PRETTY, VACANT”
Based on skill alone, Renée Tempête should be the new Galaxy Girl. Instead, a buxom blonde with no actual powers holds the title. As events unfold, Renée struggles not only against monsters, criminals and giant robots, but also a society that desperately wants to keep her in her place.

That is, if the entire city itself doesn’t self-destruct before it’s all over!
