You’ve been with us since the beginning (right?). You’ve watched Zoe grow from being the new girl, to becoming the leader of an international group of girls with magical powers. Now see how it all ends with the finale issue, Crystal Cadets #8! In this issue, discover a surprise connection between Emmy and one of Zoe’s friends! Can the Cadets win when they’re short one cadet, or will Emmy finally meet her match?
The penultimate issue of Crystal Cadets has just gone live! Crystal Cadets #7 finds Jasmine captured by Emmy, and the Darkness taking over. Zoe and the Cadets will have to enlist a friend to find Jasmine — but they may have to choose between saving her, and the last missing cadet. Shenanigans ensue! Check out a preview of this issue, or head on over to get Crystal Cadets #7!
On top of that, I spent yesterday reviewing all 8 issues (yes, there is indeed one more) for the print graphic novel! I got a few chuckles myself, since I hadn’t read them all in a bit. So it looks like the graphic novel IS COMING! But if you can’t wait, hop on over to read Crystal Cadets #7, before the finale next month!
Join other comics creators and me at the annual LA Times Festival of Books this Saturday at USC! Come down, enjoy the books, and get your comics on while you’re at it!

See you then!
Wondercon is this weekend, and if you’ll be there, you can find me signing at the Lion Forge booth, 401, from 2-3pm on Saturday. Allegedly, I will be signing preview PRINT copies of magical girl comic Crystal Cadets. But this could be just an ugly rumor. Here is my only clue:

Will there be preview copies? If you’re feeling adventurous, come join me at 2pm on Saturday and find out.
It’s out! The latest issue of Crystal Cadets splits the team in two, as they must hold off Emmy’s attack at a fun fair while cleverly bringing home the next cadet. But will the girls, still trying to figure out their powers, make a mess of it? The answer may surprise you! Forgive me for sounding like a “news at 11″ broadcast ;) There are only 2 more issues left, so get on board!
If you’re not convinced, check out an extended preview of this issue over at the Roar Comics Tumblr.
If you haven’t heard, IDW will be print publishing many of Lion Forge’s comics, including some Roar Comics titles in June. It’s not official that they will be collecting and publishing Crystal Cadets, but I bet the more digital orders we get, the better the chances are of getting to hold the collected print edition in your hot little hands (or big, cold hands, as the case may be). So get in there, tell your friends, tell your wife, tell your friend’s wife, and spread the word!
When the Crystal Cadets got split up at the end of the previous issue, they find themselves in a hidden underwater cave. They soon discover that being lost is the least of their worries. What secrets will they find in the deep? Download issue 5 of Crystal Cadets and find out!
In case you missed it, Crystal Cadets was also featured in a Bustle feature on upcoming lady creators in comics, including Raina Telgemeier, Roz Chast, and Fiona Staples. Check it out.
The quest to find all the Crystal Cadets continues, as Zoe, Jasmine, and the gang head out to Puerto Rico to find the Sapphire Cadet. But as their ranks grow, will they be able to stick together? Download Crystal Cadets #4 here.
