ASHLEY
ADORNED BY CHI THE GRAPHIC NOVEL
Writer: Jacque Aye
Artist: Magus Ato
Publisher: Self-Published
Cover Price: $25.00
Release Date: August 2019
Adorned by Chi tells the tale of Adaeze, a painfully shy Nigerian college student who discovers she has Goddess-like powers and must, reluctantly, lead a team of young warriors to defeat an apocalyptic monster that threatens to destroy humanity.

Adorned by Chi is inspired by the Japanese Magical Girl genre and series like Revolutionary Girl Utena, Madoka Magica, and, of course, Sailor Moon. The story also takes elements from Igbo culture & lore, including Goddesses like Ala, Uhamiri and more.

We were moved to create our series after noticing a lack of African representation in the Magical Girl Genre…we actually couldn’t find any! So we created what we yearned to see.

Want to know more about the team behind the project?

Rating: ★★★★☆

BATMAN: A DEATH IN THE FAMILY

Artist: Jim Apara, Tom Grummett
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $16.99
Batman readers were allowed to vote on the outcome of the story and they decided that Robin should die! As the second person to assume the role of Batman’s sidekick, Jason Todd had a completely different personality than the original Robin. Rash and prone to ignore Batman’s instructions, Jason was always quick to act without regard to consequences. In this fatal instance, Robin ignores his mentor’s warnings when he attempts to take on the Joker by himself and pays the ultimate price. Driven by anger with Superman by his side, Batman seeks his vengeance as he looks to end the Joker’s threat forever.

Collects Batman #426-429, 440-442, The New Titans 60-61 and material from Batman Annual #25.
